Kano’s APC, PDP parties of freeloaders – ADC Aspirant.

Published

Kano central candidate aspiring for senatorial seat under African Democratic Congress (ADC) Alh Musa Shuaibu Ungogo said both ruling and opposition political parties in Kano are full of freeloaders, grandstanding under the facade of politics, purposefully for gaining material and selfish interest.

Alh Ungogo made the revelation while briefing newsmen in Kano on Monday.

He said since from the return of democratic rule in 1999 till date, APC and PDP are the only dual parties opportune to be steering the stewardship of Kano state.

Adding that, the state has been managed for long out of effective road map that would serve as a guidance towards attaining economic prosperity.

“It is obviously known that Kano hasn’t attained the required level of educational,industrial and economic development its deserved compared to huge financial resources expended within close to two decades of returning to democratic rule” he sternly said.

He added that, from the first tenure of ex-governor Kwankwaso up to the eight-year rule of former governor Shekaru, down to the returning of Kwankwaso and to the incumbent governor Ganduje, misplacement of priority has become the order of the day, while white-elephant projects under the name of people’s developmental projects were executed under the auspices of selfish motives.

“Kano, as melting pot as well as cosmopolitan city has been widely known as hub of industrial and commercial activities, but under the reign of APC and PDP, our markets are gradually permeated and risk of been overtaken by Chinese businessmen, having comatose industries, restive and unemployed youth sitting idle in nooks and crannies of Kano” he alleged.

He noted that, at moment the state is in dire need of credible leader who will serve wholeheartedly and sincerity.

Musa Ungogo urged the entirety of Kano populace, since both parties failed, they should think twice in choosing credible leaders to entrust their destiny upon them in the forthcoming general elections.

SSS Arrests Anti-Ganduje Social Media Critic

Published

on

Salisu Hotoro, a critic of the governor of Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduje and supporter of Kwankwasiyya movement, has been arrested.

Mr Hotoro was picked by the operatives of the State Security Service, SSS, in his Hotoro home on Thursday.

Sources disclosed that he was arrested for allegedly casting aspersions on a former managing director of Nigerian Ports Authority, Aminu Dabo.

The former managing director of NPA drew the ire of the Kwankwasiyya supporters when he reportedly claimed that he “takes care” of Kwankwasiyya supporters before his defection to APC.

Sanusi Dawakin-Tofa, spokesman for Kano State gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Abba Yusuf, confirmed Mr Hotoro’s arrest on his Facebook page, saying he was arrested by the SSS.

“Salisu Yahaya Hotoro, a member of my team and a social media activist faithful to Kwankwasiyya movement in Kano has been arrested by the men of DSS in Kano.

“Salisu was humiliated and chained at both his legs and hands then taken away to an unknown destination.

“We condemn this intimidation on the opposition as an act of impunity from the enemies of democracy,” Mr Dawakin-Tofa wrote.

Mr Dawakin-Tofa disclosed that all efforts by the Kwankwasiyya group to know Mr Hotoro’s whereabouts proved futile.

While condemning the arrest, the spokesman alleged that the development was a plot by the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje and the All Progressives Congress, APC to launch onslaught on him and some Kwankwasiyya social media activists.

He vowed that the intimidation would not deter the opposition from criticising President Muhammadu Buhari and Mr Ganduje over alleged injustice meted to them in the re-run election.

The state Director of SSS, Alhasan Mohammed, could not be reached at at the time of filing in this report as his mobile number was not reachable.

Mr Hotoro was previously arrested and charged to court late last year.
