Ganduje Orders Lawmaker To Stop Constituency Project
AREWA AGENDA – The Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has ordered a member representing Dawakin-Tofa/Tofa/Rimin Gado Federal Constituency, Tijjani Abdulkadir Jobe, to stop a road project in his constituency where the governor came from.
Mr. Ganduje is a Constituent of Mr. Jobe being from Dawakin Tofa Local Government.
The Rimingado-Gulu road has been dilapidated for over 30 years, despite its socio-economic importance to the potato-producing community of Gulu and other surrounding villages.
Against this background, the lawmaker brought the project to be executed under the Federal Ministry of Agric’s COVID-19 palliatives for rural development.
It was gathered that the governor wants to take credit for the execution of project despite the fact that the federal contractor has already moved to site.
The governor called Mr Jobe on phone on Tuesday night and directed him to demobilise the contractors from site or order their arrest.
POLITICS DIGEST reports, Mr Jobe confirmed that the governor had actually ordered him to stop the project In a telephone chat with their reporter.
He said the governor’s decision was at the detriment of the community he deprived of quality project that would last long.
According to Mr Jobe, the state government has already directed another contractor to take over the project without proper surveys and assessments.
This paper reliably confirmed that the governor is against Mr. Jobe’s move of bringing positive development to Constituents in order to pave way for his son who recently resigned from the Nigerian Communications Commission to assist his father in political activities.
Umar Ganduje, an Engineer has been seen mobilising support from the people of Dawakin Tofa, Tofa, Rimin Gado in a move to succeed Mr. Jobe.
