SOCIETY BIG BOY,AHMED UWHUBETINE IS BACK IN TOWN

Published

on

Celebrated man about town, the one and only socialite known and addressed as Ahmed Uwhubetine, owner of the now defunct 1145 is back in town and as usual and as expected of him, being the happy go lucky fellow unparalleled, he sauntered into SIP lounge last night, Friday, April 15, 2017 to much hailing and back-slapping just to relax with a few friends. The dude who is much loved by many of his pals, had been away for quite a while, especially after that accusation that came up sometime ago. Though that accusation was vigorously denied by many of his friends, the fun loving dude still made sure to keep a very low profile for a long time, making many to speculate unnecessarily. Now that he has come back and has appeared for many to see, maybe the good times has begun to roll in again and he has begun to “ball” in the high powered way as usual all over again, because like they always say about Ahmed, there’s never a dull moment when this artistic man is in the mix. He knows how to have fun and have it real good. We heard Sujimoto and a few friends were around too. Welcome back bro.

The Kano High Court is set to arraign Kano State’s immediate previous governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, on April 17, 2024, on charges of bribery, diversion, and theft of money, including the alleged acceptance of $413,000 and N1.38 billion in bribes.

Haruna Dederi, Kano State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, confirmed the situation, saying Ganduje would be charged with his wife and six others.

The accused individuals named in the summons are Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, Hafsat Umar, Abubakar Bawuro, Umar Abdullahi Umar, Jibrilla Muhammad, Lamash Properties Ltd, Safari Textiles Ltd, and Lesage General Enterprises.

The Kano State Government, which initiated the criminal suit against the eight respondents, has declared its readiness to present 15 witnesses to testify before Justice Usman Na’aba of State High Court number four.

“It is very true. We have filed the case and it’s going to hold on the 17th of April, 2024. What I cannot confirm is whether he is served or not, but he will definitely be served,” he said.

Dederi further highlighted the significance of accountability in governance, remarking, “What he (Ganduje) doesn’t understand is that you cannot run away from the evil day, it will definitely come to you, and this will even serve as a deterrence to all of us that are also in government now.”

The commissioner also addressed the jurisdictional aspect of the case, asserting,
“He was saying that we can’t prosecute him, forgetting that the offence also falls under the category of the state offences,” he said.

“It’s not totally a federal affair and we have even appealed to Justice Liman ruling on that.”
