- Ex-governor Kwankwaso says creation of new emirates is a deliberate attempt by Abdullahi Ganduje to create disunity among the people of Kano
- Kwankwaso accused the governor of not caring about what the masses wants
- Going further, the former governor of Kano said the state government is championing a misplacement of priority
The four newly created emirates by Abdullahi Ganduje-led administration is a deliberate attempt by the governor to create disunity among the people of Kano state, according the senator representing Kano Central senatorial district, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso.
Kwankwso said this while speaking in a two-hour radio programme in the state on Thursday, May 30, Daily Trust reports.
According to the former governor of Kano, the state government is championing a misplacement of priority, a government that does not care for what the masses wants.
“I look with dismay at the rate at which priorities are being misplaced. I saw some brand new cars purchased for the said new emirates when some of our schools have been left in shambles.
“I am aware that, in the last three years some secondary schools in Kano were razed down by fire and these schools are still there in dare need of the authority’s attention; but what have got? Nothing, and the government is busy buying expensive cars and spending heavily on what the people of Kano state do not want," Kwankwaso said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, was said be absent at the inauguration ceremony of Governor Ganduje for the second term in office.
The absence of the Emir of Kano was reportedly due to security reasons in the state.
All the four newly sworn-in Emirs, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar II of Rano Emirate, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero of Bichi Emirate, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdilkadir of Gaya Emirate and Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar of Karaye Emirate, all of whom were adorned in their royal regalia, alongside their Dogarai (Palace guards) were present.
