Reason has emerged why the Kano State Government under the leadership of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf destroyed a beautiful roundabout built by his immediate predecessor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
According to a report by the Daily Nigerian, the Chief Press Secretary Secretary to the Kano State Government, Sanusi Dawakin Tofa, claimed that the structure was substandard and may collapse in one year.
Speaking on Freedom Radio Kano monitored by our source on Wednesday, the. Chief Press Secretary to the SSG said the roundabout also carried a large Christian cross, which, according to him, is against the doctrine of Islam.
Mr Bichi added that the structure was also obstructing the view of drivers accessing all routes linked through it.
He said “The roundabout is obstructing the view of motorists, and secondly, if you use a drone camera, you will see that the roundabout has large design of a cross on top of it.
“And over 99.99 or 100 percent of Kano indigenes are Muslims. So you can’t have a structure with a large inscription of the cross on it. It’s against Islamic values.
“Our clerics told us that whenever our beloved Prophet Muhammad saw anything, no matter how little, with a sign of cross on it, he would ensure that such a thing is destroyed.
“So any picture of Kano you snap, you would see a large sign of the cross on it, even the Muhammadu Buhari underpass in Hotoro has a similar design, and I can assure you that plans are underway to make sure those symbols are removed from the bridge.”
