Did Ganduje Order Shutdown Of Kano Stadiums Because Of Atiku’s Rally? Read...

Abdullahi Ganduje, Kano State Governor, on Tuesday ordered the immediate closure of two major stadiums in the state for renovation. The Cable reported that the governor’s action was coming five days to the campaign rally of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Atiku’s rally is scheduled for February 10 while the renovation is expected to end on February 18.

The proposed general renovation reportedly included the installation of the new scoreboard, the running track and provision of sources for steady water supply to all parts of the stadiums.

A government official, who spoke off the record told The Cable that the shutdown of the two stadiums – Sani Abacha Stadium situated at Kofar Mata and Kano Pillars Stadium at Sabon Gari – was intended to frustrate the campaign rally of the PDP. Hmm!
