Immediate past Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, who succeeded Rabiu Kwankwaso in office, may have renewed their political battle as both of them were spotted in the Presidential Villa on Friday, obviously on the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s invitation.
Ganduje, who spoke with State House correspondents shortly after the meeting, said he came to report his former boss, Rabiu Kwankwaso to President Bola Tinubu over the current demolition going on in the state.
He described the demolition in Kano being carried out by Governor Abba Yusuf as “illegal.”
He said it was executed without due process and, therefore, breached the law, calling him a stooge of Kwankwaso.
Ganduje said the demolition exercise was done without carrying out any investigation or giving due notice in line with the provisions of Land Use Act.
Recall that Yusuf, in his inaugural speech on May 29, gave a marching order to security agencies in Kano to immediately repossess all public properties believed to have been sold by the Ganduje administration.
He alleged that they were illegally acquired and built by the Ganduje’s administration.
Some structures demolished in the recent fiasco include Haji Camp, Daula Hotel and shopping complexes around the Eid Prayer Ground in Kano, structures Ganduje said were products of Public-Private Partnerships.
