Residents in Kano have continued to express a dismay about Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s stoppage of a multimillion Naira road construction in the state.
The road project attracted to the state by a House of Representatives member, representing Dawakin-Tofa/Tofa/Rimin Gado Federal Constituency, Tijjani Jobe, was stopped following an instruction by the state governor, setting tongues wagging across the state.
Residents who expressed their shock at the governor’s decision, however, attributed to it to governor’s ambition to sabotage the efforts of the legislator in order to pave way for the ambition of one of his biological children to supplant him in 2023.
Saminu Ibrahim a resident of Gulu community of the state told Sahelian Times that : “none of us in the community is happy with what transpired between the State Governor and the Honourable member.
“We have been praying for many years to see the realization of this project, which is the major road that links our farmlands to market, but the suspension has cast doubt in our minds.”
Another resident, Ado Amadu, accused the governor of “clearly showing that our interest is his priority.”
The Rimingado-Gulu is a road that passes across 8 different political wards road has been in terrible condition for over 30 years, despite its importance to the economy of the constituency.
Sahara Reporters had also published a story on 3 children of the state governor of Kano State, being positioned to take over from Jobe.
Sahara Reporters also gathered that Umar, Aseeya and Abdulaziz Ganduje have already started jostling to take over from the lawmaker with their father’s support.
