Abba Kabir expresses dissatisfaction with Ganduje’s stewardship

Abba Kabir expresses dissatisfaction with Ganduje’s stewardship

Kano State‘s new governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf (Abba Gida Gida), has expressed dissatisfaction with the reports of his predecessor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje’s stewardship in the state.

He said the handover notes submitted by Ganduje through the his Secretary to the State Government was not satisfactory, as it was very scanty.

He therefore vowed to probe the N241billion inherited from the administration of former governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

“The handover notes not enough for us. It is a very scanty note. The transition committee report was also very scanty.

“Nothing we can do as representatives of the state, we can’t refuse to collect what was given to us. We will look at it. Where we are satisfied, we will take action. Where we are also not satisfied, we will also take action accordingly.

“It is so disheartening that the government left a debt profile of over N241billion for us. Where are we going to source the money? The IGR they talk about is nothing to write home about. The money they realized through Kano Internal Revenue Service was nothing to write home about. Why the use of so many consultants? Just like rain conduit for the resources of people Kano state. We are going to look at it. I am not satisfied!

“I pray Almighty Allah reward him (Ganduje) according to what he did for the state. We are not here to steal money; we are not here to grab their lands. We are here to work and by the grace of Allah, we will achieve all we set out to achieve within the next four years.”

The new governor also blasted Ganduje for “departing from established democratic” practice in jetting out of the state and not personally handing over the state government to him.

Ganduje left Kano on Sunday, not minding to attend the inauguration ceremony of his successor.
