Abba Kabir Yusuf said:
“The handover notes not enough for us. It is a very scanty note. The transition committee report was also very scanty.
“It is so disheartening that the government left a debt profile of over N241billion for us. Where are we going to source the money? The IGR they talk about is nothing to write home about. The money they realized through Kano Internal Revenue Service was nothing to write home about.”
