The Senate has condemned the demolition of the building used by a faction of the All Progressives Congress in Kaduna State by the state government. The chamber asked Governor Nasir el-Rufai to either provide a replacement for the secretariat or compensate Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi representing Kaduna-North who was said to own the building.
The Senate made the resolution following a point of order raised at the plenary today by Senator ShehuSani, who described El-Rufai as “an affliction on the people of Kaduna State.”
The Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency (KAPSUDA) has however said the demolition was part of operations the agency is undertaking across Kaduna metropolis in compliance with its mandate.
The Director-General of the agency, Mr. Ibrahim Husseini, said in partnership with sister agencies, KASUPDA is clearing illegal structures, tackling street hawking and restoring order across Kaduna.The Secretariat belongs to the faction loyal to the suspended senators Sani and Hunkuyi.
