The Kano State Government has resumed the demolition of structures built in public places allegedly sold by the immediate past administration of Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The resumption of the demolition is coming barely a few days after former governors of the state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and Abdullahi Ganduje were involved in heated exchanges over the exercise.

The two former governors had visited President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Friday as the issue of the demolition was raised.

Kwankwaso had reportedly told Tinubu that Ganduje sold out significant places, including mosques and graveyards, but Ganduje on his part, claimed only illegal and dangerous structures were demolished.

In the early hours of Sunday, the demolition continued with shops built by the fence of Sani Abacha Stadium at Kofar Mata, GSS Kofar Nasarawa facing IBB road and buildings by GGSS Dukawuya, Goron Dutse.

According to a source, “the Kano Urban Planning and Development Authority (KNUPDA) under the instruction of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf demolished part of Government Girls Secondary School, Dukawiya, in the state metropolis.”

The state Deputy Governor, Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo, stated the government’s commitment to continue demolishing structures built in illegal places.
