Abba Kabir Yusuf pledges to investigate Ganduje’s administration
Abdullahi Ganduje, who governed Kano State for eight years, was scheduled to hand over to Abba Kabir Yusuf of the NNPP.
The incoming governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, popularly known as Abba Gida Gida, has vowed to probe the N241 billion debt inherited from Ganduje’s administration.
Expressing dissatisfaction with the handover notes provided, Yusuf criticized Ganduje for not personally handing over the state government and instead relying on the outgoing Secretary to the State Government.
