Provide evidence of N10bn CCTV loan, Ganduje challenges CSO

Abdullahi Ganduje, the former governor of Kano State, refuted claims that his administration secured a N10 billion loan for the installation of Close Circuit Television cameras in Kano metropolis, describing such reports as misleading and false.

In a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, the Commissioner for Information in the Ganduje administration, Muhammad Garba, said the story credited to a “non-existent” civil society organisation, the Coalition of Political Analysis Forum and Governance, was designed to discredit the former governor by “ignorantly” calling for an investigation on why the money was not spent on the project.

He said, “To further confirm that they are fake, the so-called organization knew nothing about the project and the hastiness with which their paymasters want them to be in the media exposes clearly, their intent.

“We, therefore, challenge them to provide evidence for the N10 billion Naira loan.

“For record purposes, when the last administration conceived the project, the State Executive Council and the Assembly formally granted approval bearing in mind the importance of the project in enhancing security in the state.

“Unfortunately, a Federal High Court in Kano, on July 1, 2022 granted an injunction restraining the government from obtaining the loan.”
