The New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), condemned the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje’s fresh demand for N10 billion loan request from Acess Bank to install CCTV cameras in the state.
The NNPP Kano State Chapter Chairman Umar Haruna Doguwa in a statement said the Party can’t sit down to watch this Ganduje administration stockpiling debts in the state with nothing to show for it.
“Governor Ganduje seems to be using his seat of power to mortgage the future of the state and that of our children.
“Due to the failure of Ganduje’s government to pay their Senior Secondary School examination fees, countless students have been forced to drop out of school and others are on the verge of dropping out,” the statement reads.
The opposition party accused Ganduje of ignoring widely increased water scarcity bedeviling the state.
Doguwa also claimed that the past administration of Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso deployed CCTV in strategic locations throughout the state.
“However, the current administration, that seeks N10 billion loan to install new ones, failed to handle them, and the good people of Kano can’t trust a governor with the installation of new ones at their detriment.
“Our great party is urging the State House of Assembly to refrain from granting trivial demands from the governor like these,” he added
The party chairman also called on the state legislators to priotise the needs of Kano good people ahead that of the governor.
“We also call on the Access Bank to resist any temptation to advance any loan to the borrowing Governor Ganduje who is hellbent on mortgaging the state to satisfy his self ends,” he urged the bank.
Doguwa also alleged that significant number of students in Kano dropped out from school the Ganduje led adminstration failed their examination fees.
” By this statement, we wish to categorically draw the attention of all commercial banks and other financial lending institutions within and outside the country to be cautious with the Ganduje’s demand for loans as the next administration will not in any way honour such reckless borrowings,” he said.
