  1. Let them go ahead as they proposed to clear their names of the allegations because no body can whether their names were used to siphoned the funds.
    But mahdi shehu must have a documentary evidence @ hand for him to disclose this weighty allegations against the dignatories.
    There action to seek for redress @ court of law is commendable, that is where they find out who lies against them between Mahdi shehu and katsina state Goverment.
