The Kano State Government has withdrawn its suit before the Federal High Court in Kano, seeking to stop the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from investigating former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje. This decision was contained in a letter signed by the Kano Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Haruna Isa Dederi, and addressed to Sanusi Musa, SAN. 


The letter instructed Musa and his team members not to take any further steps on the matter, either by appearing in court or filing any processes regarding the case. It also debriefed them of the earlier instructions given to them to handle the case. 


It will be recalled that the Kano State Government had previously issued a fiat instrument to restrain EFCC from investigating the controversial dollar video under the former governor through the Ministry of Justice. However, with the withdrawal of the suit, EFCC can now go ahead with its investigation of Ganduje. 


This development is expected to generate mixed reactions from the public, especially considering the controversy surrounding the former governor's tenure and allegations of financial misconduct. Nevertheless, the Kano State Government's decision to withdraw the suit indicates a willingness to allow the law to take its course. 


In conclusion, the Kano State Government's withdrawal of its suit against EFCC over Ganduje's investigation is a significant development in the ongoing controversy surrounding the former governor. It remains to be seen how the investigation will unfold and what the outcome will be.
