Kano state governor, Abba Yusuf, has demolished the historic roundabout at the kano state government house, which was renovated by the past administration of governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
In a statement, the chief press secretary to the governor, Sanusi Tofa, the roundabout was destroyed because it was substandard and the structure was too tall to be placed in front of the government house for security reasons.
The Duala Hotel structure developed by Lamash Property Limited was also demolished, with the developers later announcing their intention to sue the government and demand N10 billion compensation.
The company’s Director of Sales, Aliyu Abubakar criticized the government for disregarding the principle of fair hearing.
In just his first week in office, the governor Yusuf-led administration commenced demolition of some structures in the state built under Ganduje’s tenure which he termed illegal structures.
