Jarma said the questionable payment was made by Kwankwaso as part of his foreign scholarship programme.
A statement by Abba Anwar, chief press secretary to the Kano state Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje said, “Investigation reveals that a sum of $1,304,618 was abandoned in one University in Ukraine, when the sum was taken there during the last administration in the state.”
“No student was sent to the university at all. The money was sent unattended and un-utilised. We said business should not be as usual anymore,” he added.
