A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Kano, Alhaji Alhassan Yaryasa, has called on President Bola Tinubu to, as a matter of urgency, prevail on Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf to stop the ongoing demolition spree by his government.
Yaryasa, who is a former coordinator of the Tinubu Camping Organisation for Kano South, made the call in an interview with The PUNCH in Kano on Tuesday.
He said the call was necessary so as to prevent the situation from degenerating into something else, as the exercise was nothing but a personal vendetta against Abdullahi Ganduje, a former governor of the state.
Yaryasa noted that the demolition spree being perpetrated by the NNPP-led government was a clear indication that the new government was only interested in destroying the legacies of the former governor.
“If the government likes, let it demolish flyovers Ganduje built or the uncompleted projects he (Ganduje) inherited from Kwankwaso and completed them. We can’t continue to waste public funds by demolishing places built with billions of naira just because the new government is not on good terms with the former”, he said.
He called on President Tinubu to advise Governor Yusuf against any attempt to tamper with the newly created emirates, saying any attempt to dissolve the new emirate would be met with stiffer resistance from the masses.
“President Tinubu should caution Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf against this demolition spree because of its negative economic impact on the state.
“Tinubu should also advise the governor against his planned dissolution of the new Emirates because it will not augur well for the state,” he said.
He also called on the national assembly to make a law that would prevent politicians, especially governors, from meddling in the affairs of traditional institutions in the country.
