Kano: Gov. Yusuf begins demolition of ‘Ganduje approved’ buildings
Kano State Governor, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf has begun massive demolition of buildings approved for construction by the immediate-past administration of Abdullahi Gnaduje, which he considered as illegal.
Our Correspondent observed that a number of buildings constructed on public areas, were brought down by bulldozers, at the early hours of Saturday.
It be recalled that few hours after he was announced as Governor-elect, Yusuf began churning out directives, part of which was a “threat” to demolish commercial shops and other buildings constructed within government-owned property or public areas.
Our Correspondent reports that a three-storey building with over 90 shops on race- course by Filing Sukuwa, Nasarawa GRA, was destroyed at the orders of Governor Yusuf by 2.00am on Saturday.
Governor Yusuf who personally led the demolition exercise was accompanied by the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Muhammed Gumel.
A source close to Government House, told our correspondent that many buildings within the Kano metropolis, approved by the immediate-past administration, have been marked for demolition.
