The Transition Committee of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in Kano state has accused Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje’s administration of obstructing the transition process to the incoming administration of Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf.
The Chairman of the NNPP Transition Committee, Dr Abdullahi Baffa Bichi, has claimed that the Ganduje administration has demonstrated outright resistance and a lack of cooperation towards the NNPP Gubernatorial transition committee since its formation.
Despite setting up 33 subcommittees, none of the committees received cooperation from the Ganduje administration, and attempts to schedule a joint meeting with the outgoing government’s transition committee were met with resistance.
”The Ganduje administration only requested the NNPP to nominate three persons for the meeting, which the NNPP considered unacceptable”
Moreover, Bichi has accused Governor Ganduje of transferring all state permanent secretaries as part of efforts to undermine the transition process in Kano.
The NNPP Transition Committee has called on democratic institutions to urge Governor Ganduje to cooperate with the transition committee and respect the choice of the people of Kano who elected Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf.
”To ensure a smooth transition, the NNPP transition committee is set to hold joint meetings with all permanent secretaries, heads of agencies and parastatals, and directors of personal management of all the 44 local governments from Tuesday, May 2
