24 HOURS after issuing a warning to individuals and organisation carrying out private constructions on public and govt lands, the Kano State governor-elect, Abba Yusuf, has issued another advisory to domestic and international lenders.
News Point Nigeria reports that, the governor-elect, in a statement by his spokesman, Sanusi Dawakin-Tofa, warn lenders not to give loans to the outgoing Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje without the consent of the incoming administration.
He said whoever gives such facility to the outgoing administration does so at his/her own risk as his administration would not honour such loan.
The statement reads in full:
