The Transition Committee set up by incoming Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf has accused outgoing Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of selling off government properties to his family members and cronies.
Dr. Abdullahi Baffa Bichi, chairman of the committee, who led the Recovery of Public Assets Subcommittee, said this during a visit the Kano State Public Procurement Bureau (Due Process Office) on Wednesday.
Bichi alleged that the committee was in a receipt of credible information that the Due Process Office had been allegedly sold to Abba Ganduje, son of the governor.
“The office which was until this afternoon being actively utilized by staff of the office was sold to the son of the exiting governor of the state and we are deeply worried by the manner at which the outgoing governor is mortgaging the common franchise of the good people of Kano state leaves much to be desired,” he said.
Bichi alleged that the credible information at the disposal of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) was that the place was “sold at less than N10million”.
