Alleged Threat to Life: “Quit Now If You Wish” Ganduje Tells Deputy
The Kano state Government has expressed great shock over what it described as unguarded remarks by the state deputy governor, Prof. Hafiz Abubakar who allege that, his life and that of his immediate family members are threatened.
In a statement signed by the state’s commissioner for Information, Youth and Culture, Malam Muhammad Garba said that the fault-finding comments made by Prof. Abubakar are not only unwarranted but also unfair to the state government.
“ rather than making such vituperative remarks, the embattled deputy governor is advised to make a choice of quitting or remaining in the government”
According to him, the government holds the office of the deputy governor at high esteem, but however, sees him as too insignificant for government to commit state resources to orchestrate plan just to remove him from office, talk less of any attempt on his life.
Further more, to prove that the allegations made by the deputy governor were false, he was at Tuesday’s state Executive Council Meeting, and he came with fewer security aides.
‘’At the meeting, when His Excellency had to excuse himself to embark on a trip, he directed the deputy governor to preside over as usual, and that all the resolutions reached at the meeting are binding, something that would not have been accorded him by his political godfather, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso’’, the statement adds.
Malam Muhammad Garba points out that despite several unguarded comments by the deputy governor, the government continues to accord respect and support for his office both morally and otherwise.
The statement also debunks allegation that he has not been provided with statutory official residence, pointing out that it was his choice to remain in the private residence as he personally brought the contractor that is handling the construction of his official residence.
