The Kano State government under the leadership of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has auctioned off all vehicles allocated to the chairmen of the 44 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the State.

Abdullahi Ganduje

The chairmen of the 44 LGAs were directed by Local Government Commissioner Murtala Sule Garo to hand over their unused vehicles for auctioning as part of a State revenue drive.

The proceeds of the auction were allegedly given to three cronies: Kano State APC Chairman Abdullahi Abbas, Kano State First Lady Hasfat Abdullahi, and Local Government Commissioner Murtala Sule Garo.

Some of the chairmen were also given vehicles as bribes to keep quiet about the matter.

Politicians in the State were also left stranded without even considering their involvement in the auctioning exercise of the State government. 

A chairman of one of the LGAs was given a car but rejected it because he accused the government of not following due process. 

Efforts to contact Murtala Sule Garo on the auction exercise proved abortive.
