Abba hints at plan to revoke public lands allocated by Ganduje

The Kano State Governor-elect, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, has hinted at his plan to revoke public lands allocated by the outgoing administration of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to individuals and businesses for commercial purposes.

Portions of schools, hospitals, cultural sites, graveyards and other public places located in Kano metropolis have been assigned by Mr. Ganduje to private citizens for various commercial uses, a decision widely criticised as reward for minority political loyalists and friends to the Kano State first family.

There are concerns in some quarters over future needs for infrastructural expansion of the public institutions to cater for the mounting population in the State.

The Kano Governor-elect gave the hint on Thursday in a statement titled ”Public Advisory on the Ongoing Construction in Public Places,” and singed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa.

The statement read partly: ”You are advised to discontinue any construction work on public land within and around the following: All schools in the State, all religious and cultural sites in the State, all hospitals in the State, all graveyards in the State, and along the city walls of Kano”

”You are also advised to discontinue the demolition of, and the construction on, all existing public buildings belonging to the government and people of Kano State”

”This Advisory is issued in the public interest, effective from today Thursday 30th March, 2023 till further notice. Any contravener does so at his/her on risk, please.”
