Former Governor of Kano State, Abubakar Ganduje, on Friday, in Abuja, lamented the demolition of several buildings in Kano State by the Abba Yusuf-led administration, accusing his predecessor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, of masterminding the development.
Ganduje, while addressing State House correspondents shortly after a closed-door meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the Aso Rock Villa on Friday evening, said the demolitions were executed without due process and, therefore, breached the law.
Although Kwankwaso contested and lost the presidential election on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, the party’s candidate, Abba Yusuf, won the Kano State governorship election.
The battle between the All Progressives Congress, whose candidate lost the governorship election, and the NNPP took an ugly turn recently.
In what the APC had termed a political backlash, Yusuf, in his inauguration 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.
Some of the structures demolished include Haji camp, Daula Hotel and shopping complexes around the Eid Prayer Ground in Kano, structures Ganduje said were products of public-private partnerships.
