BREAKING: Kano State Government denies revoking Kano Club title


By Aminu Kutama

The Kano State Government has debunked a story that the Governor of Kano State Abdullahi Ganduje has revoked the title of Kano Club, the oldest golf course in West Africa.

It was earlier reported, and some documents were sighted by newsmen, where it was gathered that the State Government has revoked the title of the 26 hectare club, where the first aircraft in Nigeria landed on November 1, 1925.

However, the State Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Malam Muhammad Garba, on Wednesday, stated that in the content of the letter sent to owners of the club, there was no mention of revocation but expiration of the term of title of the land in question since April 6, 2019.

He said as statutory agency saddled with the responsibility of land management and informed by the reform in land administration in the state, the state Bureau for Land Management ensures payment of ground rent by property owners as well as renewal of land titles.

Garba, further alleged that the story was planted in the public by elements in the media close to the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) to discredit the the ruling APC in the state.

The Commissioner added that the status of the club remains, while he called for total rejection of the “fabricated story”.
