Information recently made available to 247ureports.com through sources close to the activities of the governor of Kano State, Malam Rabiu Kwankwaso, indicate that not all may be going well within the administrative sector of the governor’s office. According to a credible source, the governor is slated to travel to the United States of America [USA] on Sunday June 3,2012. Going along with him on the official trip are 50 delegates.
It is gathered that the Governor will stay in the United States of America for a period of 5 to 7days with the entire 50 man delegate – of which according to the official records made available to our correspondent, each of the 50-man delegate will get a daily spending allowance of $1,000 equivalent of N158,000. The source reveals that a budget of $2.5million equivalent to N395million has been earmarked for the trip.
It is not clear the purpose of trip to the USA. Insiders indicate the visit maybe security related but other within the government in Kano question the need for the 50-man delegation and the size of budget earmarked for the trip.
It may be recalled that the governor of Kano State prides in being financially prudent -and has been reported to publicly chastise members of his cabinet over frivolous spending.
Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso is said to be preparing to join the 2015 race for presidency under the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP].
