Kano state chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wishes to lament with utmost curiosity, the decision of Kano state Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to spend over five hundred million Naira on the beautification of the Kofar Ruwa overpass bridge named after the late Galadiman Kano Alh. Tijjani Hashim.

Kano State PDP Chairman, Shehu Wada Sagagi in a statement, Saturday, made available to Stallion Times called on Kano people to Know that the amount approved for the placement of polished Nigerian granite at the underpass bridge is a clear misappropriation of public funds.

According to the statement, the polished Nigerian granite despite being too costly, the implementation of the project started a few weeks before the council approval and it was not part of either the 2021 or 2022 fiscal year respectively.

“This is an impeachable offense, which should call for a serious concern of oversight function assuming Kano has a formidable state legislative arm.

“We called on the members of civil society, the anti-graft agencies such as the EFCC and ICPC to investigate this shoddy deal in the interest of accountability and good governance.

“You may recall that the Kano state government has last week approved the huge sum of N525, 435, 750.00 million for the unnecessary beautification of Kofar Ruwa overpass bridge.

“It is evidently clear that the governor is on a spending spree mood to further cripple Kano state economy before the expiration of his second tenure to make Kano absolutely bankrupt.”

“As an opposition party and good citizens of Kano state, we vehemently condemned this act and call on the Kano state House of Assembly, civil society, and all stakeholders to resist this project as same is a misplacement of priority looking at the economic situation of Kano state,” the Chairman asserted.
