Gov. Yusuf Clashes with Ganduje over Governance Failure Accusations

Date:

Karibu Abdulhamid

 

Kano State Governor, Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf, and his predecessor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, engage in a war of words as accusations of governance failure and corruption fly back and forth.

 

Gov. Yusuf rebuts Ganduje’s claims of misrule, urging the EFCC to release a forensic report on Ganduje’s alleged involvement in the “Gandollar saga.”

 

In a scathing response to former Governor Ganduje’s accusations of governance failure in the current administration, Gov. Yusuf denounced Ganduje’s eight-year tenure as riddled with corruption, mismanagement, and nepotism.

 

He alleged massive records of corruption, diversion of public funds, and the sale of government properties during Ganduje’s reign.

 

Speaking through his spokesperson, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, Gov. Yusuf expressed regret that Ganduje would dare to speak about governance failures, given his own administration’s track record of maladministration.

 

He accused Ganduje of presiding over two unproductive tenures marked by the siphoning of public resources and nepotism, which left many families in mourning due to political violence.

 

Contrary to Ganduje’s assertions, Gov. Yusuf asserted that his administration’s eight months in office had far surpassed Ganduje’s eight years of “political caricature” and misrule.

 

He advised Ganduje to focus on defending himself in court against corruption allegations rather than engaging in media theatrics.

 

Highlighting Ganduje’s alleged involvement in corrupt practices, including the infamous “Gandollar saga,” Gov. Yusuf’s administration vowed to hold Ganduje accountable for his actions.

 

The statement called for the release of the EFCC’s forensic investigation report on the matter for public scrutiny.

 

Gov. Yusuf emphasized his administration’s commitment to socio-economic and infrastructural development in Kano, despite inheriting significant debt and liabilities from Ganduje’s administration.

 

He accused Ganduje of selling off state assets and leaving the state in a state of bankruptcy.

 

Addressing allegations of poor governance, Gov. Yusuf cited initiatives such as foreign postgraduate scholarships, free healthcare, and pension gratuity payments as evidence of his administration’s positive impact on Kano residents.

 

He pledged to restore sanity to the state and investigate cases of misappropriation and political violence.

Gov. Yusuf warned Ganduje against dragging the name of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu into his corruption scandal, urging him to face the consequences of his actions.
