Abba Kabir Yusuf, the newly elected governor of Kano State, has committed to look into the N241 billion debt that the former governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje’s administration left behind.
Yusuf expressed his displeasure with the handover notes provided by Ganduje in his speech during the inauguration, saying that he is discouraged by the paucity of information in the documents received.
“The handover notes are by no means adequate. They give scant details, and the transition committee report is also deficient.
“We cannot refuse to accept what has been presented to us because we are state representatives. According to the new governor, “We will carefully review the specifics and take appropriate action based on our findings.
Ganduje was condemned by Governor Abba Yusuf for choosing to leave the state before the inauguration ceremony rather than personally handing over the state government.
He emphasized the requirement for thorough information gathering and exchange in order to facilitate the appropriate management of state affairs.
The governor questioned the Internal Generated Revenue (IGR) level over the time that Ganduje was in charge, raising concerns about how the state has fared and what fresh revenue sources are available to his government in light of the debt left by his predecessor.
The governor told the residents of Kano that he is still dedicated to the development of the region in order to reestablish it as a major economic player in Nigeria.
