Ganduje Seeks To Extort Money From School Owners Through Hanifa’s Murder – PDP

Kano Governor
Kano state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Kano State government under the leadership of Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, to not use Hanifa’s murder as a window to extort schools proprietors.
Following the brutal killing of five-year-old Hanifa Abubakar by Abdulmalik Tanko, proprietor of Noble Kids Academy, Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state, the state government revoked licences of all private schools in the state.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Kano State PDP Chairman, Shehu Wada Sagagi, said despite the importance of reforming the private education sub-sector, which has been long overdue, the government should follow the necessary due process in accordance with the law establishing Kano state Private School Board, which regulates the activities of all non-public schools in the state.
The statement read, “We learnt that Governor Ganduje has withdrawn the operating licence of all private schools in the state. With all sense of humility and patriotism, we will like to caution the state government not to use this opportunity to extort money from the proprietors of private schools in the state.
The party noted that there had been a standard operating procedure provided by the law establishing the private school board developed by the previous administration of Sen. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso.
The Party (PDP) applauded the efforts of security agencies for their swift response in investigating, arresting and arraigning the kidnapper and killer of Kano school girl, Hanifa Abubakar.
The statement further acknowledged the successful operation that led to the arrest of the suspected culprit, Abdulmalik Tanko, and his cohorts through strategic intelligence gathering and tactical security operations.
“As members of the opposition in Kano, we wish to join other well-meaning Nigerians to also commend the prompt prosecution and arraignment of the suspects before a senior magistrate court in the state to pursue justice on late Halifa without any delay.
“The party is hereby extending its heartfelt condolence to the family of late Hanifa and the good people of Kano on the unfortunate incidence that has put people in deep sorrow and sympathy.”
