The immediate past governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, is very angry over the ongoing demolition of properties by Governor Yusuf Abba’s government.
Ganduje believes that his predecessor Rabiu Kwankwaso is behind the continuous demolition of his works.
Kwankwaso is not the chairman but acts in the capacity of the national leader of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), the same platform that ousted Ganduje’s All Progressives Congress in Kano State.
Ganduje, who also served as Kwankwaso’s deputy, met with President Bola Tinubu on Friday to express his anger towards Kwankwaso.
He was so upset that he noted that he could have slapped the NNPP leader if the duo met at the Presidential Villa where they separately went to visit President Bola Tinubu.
“I know he (Kwankwaso) is in the building but we have not met. Probably if we met, maybe I could have slapped him,” Ganduje said on Friday while addressing State House correspondents in Abuja.
The former governor claimed that less than 72 hours after the inauguration of Governor Abba Yusuf, four properties erected based on a public-private partnership arrangement were demolished by the government.
He expressed disappointment over the ill-motivated moves by the current administration, saying it hampers development. But the former governor said that he has briefed the Inspector General of Police about the development.
While declining to disclose the President’s response on the matter, Ganduje claimed Governor Abba is unhappy with the demolition. According to him, the move has infuriated residents as some NNPP members were affected.
As of the time of this report, Kwankwaso is still in a meeting with the President.
