Hey there, middle schoolers! Today, we’re going to talk about something that happened in Kano, Nigeria. The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje, had something to say about the demolitions carried out by the State Governor, Yusuf Abba.
Ganduje believes that when his political party, the APC, regains control of the state, things will get better for the business community in Kano. He thinks that the current demolitions are causing a lot of problems and that it’s not a good thing for the economy.
Let me explain what’s been going on. The State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal recently removed the sitting Governor and declared the APC candidate, Nasir Gawuna, as the winner of the governorship election that happened on March 18.
So, when Ganduje met with a group of young leaders from the Kano market, he expressed his disappointment about the demolitions. He said it was “unfortunate” and “senseless.” He believes that these demolitions are hurting the economy of Kano and scaring people away from doing business there.
He also mentioned that even banks are hesitant to accept certificates of occupancy because they’re not sure if the government will take them away in the future. This uncertainty is making it difficult for people to invest in Kano.
But there’s some good news too! People who lost their property in the demolitions have taken the issue to court, and the court has started giving verdicts for compensation. This means that those affected might get some money back for their losses.
The Chairman of the market leaders, Umar Ladiyo, also spoke up about the hardships faced by the business community. He said that a lot of money was lost during the demolitions, and it’s been a tough time for everyone.
So, in conclusion, Ganduje believes that the return of the APC to power is the solution to the problems faced by Kano. He hopes that things will improve for the business community and that the economy will bounce back.
That’s all for today, middle schoolers! Stay tuned for more interesting news.
