Kano state government has now beamed its searchlight on some of the projects initiated and abandoned by the administration of former governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
In doing this, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje's administration has set up a committee to assess all the abandoned 5km road projects awarded by Kwankwaso.
The projects, according to Leadership, cover the 44 local government areas in the state.
Also, Ganduje-led state EXCO approved the termination of contract for the construction of multi-million naira Dawakin Tofa 5km carriage way.
The project was awarded to Messrs CCECC Nigeria Limited at the cost of N651,844,966.51 million.
This was disclosed by the state commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba.
According to him, the measure was part of effort by the state government to evaluate, redesign, complete or terminate any contract awarded for the projects.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Kano state council of Friday mosque Imams urged Ganduje to sign the death warrant of 22-year-old Yahaya Sharif-Aminu who was sentenced to death by a sharia court for alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad.

Legit.ng had also reported that the Kano govt was asked to immediately quash the death sentence handed down to the musician.
The demand was made by the global rights group, Amnesty International (AI) in a tweet on Thursday, August 13.
Legit.ng had also reported that the United States has condemned the death sentence passed on Kano singer, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu for allegedly insulting the Prophet Muhammad in a song he circulated social media.

"The Nigerian government must overturn Sharif-Aminu’s death sentence and repeal blasphemy laws still present in state-sponsored courts," Tony Perkins, the vice-chairperson of USCIRF stated.
