Kano state government still paying their previous governor billions of naira

Kano State Commissioner for Information, Youths and Culture
Muhammad Garba, on Tuesday said the government is still paying
the over N350 million debt inherited from the Senator Rabiu
Kwankwaso-led government.
Mr Garba, who addressed a news conference in his office, was
reacting to “recent unguarded statements credited to Senator
Kwankwaso and his protégé”.
He said KMr wankwaso’s debt was a huge embarrassment to
Kano State.
“The debt cuts across contracts for uncompleted flyovers, roads,
and the controversial foreign and local scholarship scheme, which
amount to over N15 billion.
“There is no need engaging into unnecessary war of words with
Kwankwaso and his followers because the people know their
“More so, the growing unease in their already divided
Kwankwasiyya camp as the 2019 elections approach confirms that
they have lost political relevance. It is unfortunate that whenever
they want to deceive the public, they keep on mentioning failed
projects of the Kwankwaso administration.
“They claim Kwankwaso built 26 skill acquisition institutes! The
question is how many of the 26 functioned at hundred per cent
when he was governor? None! Some human empowerment
programmes, such as the Lafiya Jari health programme, were not
sustained during Kwankwaso’s administration because of lack of
transparency and sincerity of purpose on the part of those who
handled it.
“How many of the flyovers built by Kwankwaso were completed
before the end of his tenure? How many of them were built in
accordance with standards that befit an emerging megacity as
Kano? Contractors handling the projects were not duly mobilised.
The said flyovers were abandoned, all of which were inherited by
Ganduje’s administration, and are being built in line with the policy
of continuity.
“Contractors, who left the sites at Maitama Sule University
because they were not mobilised have been mobilised. Today,
Maitama Sule University is undergoing a face-lift. Millions are
being spent by the Ganduje administration to redesign Kano State
University of Science and Technology, Wudil, and place it on the
front pew of world class specialised higher institutions.
“It still baffles my imagination why certain questions should not be
raised against someone who looted Kano and left over N350 billion
debt for our beloved state to move backward.
