Abba Kabir Yusuf, the governor of Kano State, said that the state will use the rubble from demolished buildings to restore the old Kano wall. He also noted that the reconstruction effort had already begun.
Yusuf made this statement while touring a few of the Kano city’s devastated landmarks over the weekend.
The Governor promised that the demolished sites’ material will be used to rebuild the Kano walls in a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa.
He, however, warned that: “People, who have no business are not needed to be seen at the demolition sites and the police and men of Nigeria Security and Civil Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has been mandated to provide security at the sites and guard it against intruders”.
“All those, who are not involved in the demolition exercise should keep off, as security agencies will not hesitate to take appropriate actions against intruders and those, who tend to be recalcitrant.”
“We went round the city to inspect the demolished sites and we decided to use the debris of the demolished sites to rehabilitate Kano city walls, so as to preserve history, beautify Kano and make it sites of attraction, as a national monument,” He added.
To this extent, the Governor called on the good people of Kano to continue to be law-abiding and report any suspicious movement to the security agencies for continuous peace and stability in our dear state Kano.
