They Have Destroyed The Economy In Kano – Ganduje Reacts To Demolition Of Markets.

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje has reacted to demolitions carried out by the State Governor, Yusuf Abba.

Ganduje said that sanity would return to the state’s business community when APC regains power.

The former governor gave the assurance when he received a delegation of Kano market youth leaders in his office at the party’s secretariat on Tuesday.

He lamented that many people are now skeptical about doing business in Kano and banks now turn down certificates of occupancy.


He said: “It is unfortunate for the other issue that you raised. The issue of senseless demolition was unfortunate. That was very unfortunate. They destroyed the economy of Kano. They destroyed business and trading in Kano.

“Many people are now sceptical about going to Kano for business. Even banks don’t accept certificates of occupancy, because they are not sure whether the certificate will be revoked tomorrow. Or even when you build, it will be demolished.

“You can see the extent of demolition of businesses in Kano. It is very unfortunate. But I have to congratulate you for taking the right steps. People who lost their property in Kano have taken the issue to court. And the court has already started giving verdicts for compensation. It is just the starting point for the people who take them to court. The answer to Kano politics is for the return of the APC and we are pursuing that.”
