Kano Govt Condemns Torching of Lawmakers’ Properties


The Kano State Government has strongly condemned the violent protest by some irate youths in Gaya, the home town of Senator Kabiru Ibrahim Gaya and Hon. Abdullahi Mahamud Gaya which led to the burning of their houses and other properties belonging to them.

Speaking with journalists on the fracas, the state Commissioner of Information, Mohammed Garba, said after reviewing the situation, the government came to the conclusion that the violent protest was instigated by those who have an axe to grind for no justifiable reason, adding that the Ganduje administration has the intention to improve the lot of the people.

According to him, the issue of water supply was a burden the present administration inherited and was willing to tackle it with determination, vigour and seriousness, adding that the effort to provide good drinking water to all the nooks and crannies of the state was a major cardinal thrust of the Ganduje administration.
He however stated that the administration inherited a huge debt burden for the contracts executed by contractors agitating to be settle.

He pointed out that Gaya and other politicians were working in tandem with stakeholders to address the issue of water and electricity in Gaya town.
He said the violent protest had exposed the irresponsibility of those hiding under the facade of politics to cause mayhem in a prevailing atmosphere of peace, stressing that those found to be the masterminds of the rampage would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
