Ganduje hands over N241bn debt to successor


Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Monday, May 29, handed over the state administration to the Governor-elect, Abba Yusuf, alongside N241 billion debt.

Speaking at the event held at the Government House in Kano, Ganduje said his administration collected N1.2 trillion in the last eight years and spent the amount, leaving behind a total of about N241 billion debt, made up of loans, contractual obligations, and others.

On his part, the Governor-elect expressed dismay over the debt profile left for his administration, saying: “We will carefully study the reports and come out with our position on the debt and other matters.

“I am surprised that the outgoing governor is not around to hand over to me as a democratically elected governor which has been the tradition.

“However, we will carefully study the reports and come out with our positions.”

Yusuf, however, called on the people of Kano State to pray for the success of his administration to ensure it met the expectation of the governed through good democratic governance.
