Kwankwaso Threatens to Sue Ganduje over Sale of Public Properties
Former Kano State governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso’s political movement, The Kwankwasiyya, has threatened to institute a lawsuit against the state’s serving governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, for the alleged selling of public properties to individuals for personal gains.
Spokesman of the group, Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo, made the position of the movement known while addressing a press conference in Kano on Friday.
The group insisted that such indiscriminate selling of public properties to individuals for personal gains were done in non-transparent manners and through unconstitutional means.
The group also said citizens have been denied the rights to enjoy the benefits of the sold properties, some of which have historical values.
Gwarzo listed some of the properties to include Daula Hotel, Triumph Publishing Company, Eid Ground at Kofar Mata, Panshekara Modern Abattoir, some parts of Fagge Juma’at Mosque, Hajj Camp and Shahuci Motor Park.
Governor Ganduje reacted through his special adviser on media Salihu Tanko Yakasai saying all the public properties sold or relocated were done with the best interest of the state at heart after they were properly debated by the state executive council.
He also agreed that the Kwankwasiyya movement member are fellow citizens of the state and are at liberty to challenge the decision of his administration before the court of law.
