The Kano State House of Assembly has appealed to Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje to, as a matter of urgency, come to the aid of the people of the three communities in Ungoggo Local Government Area of the state affected by erosion.
The call was a sequel to a motion presented to the Assembly by Alh. Aminu Sa’adu (PDP-Ungoggo) on Monday.
According to Sa-adu, the erosion, which affected Zangon Marikita, Gayawa and Dankunkuru communities, has destroyed many houses, schools and business premises in the communities.
“It has become necessary for me to notify the Assembly on the need to call on the governor to rescue our communities because the erosion has crippled so many businesses.
“This has become a great challenge to the economy of the area and the state in general,” he said.
Sa’adu added that the collapse of some schools, occasioned by the erosion, had affected several pupils in the areas, as they could not go to school, adding that this could pose a serious threat to education in the state.
“The situation in the affected communities is very sympathetic. Residents cannot move about easily because most of the streets linking them together have been damaged.
“We call on the state government to urgently look into the situation to enable the people of the areas to enjoy dividends of democracy,” the lawmaker said.
The Assembly presided over by the Speaker, Alh. Abdulazeez Garba-Gafasa, unanimously adopted the motion and called on the state government to rescue the people of the affected communities.
The lawmakers also charged the government to construct the road linking Zawachiki Housing Estate, Samegu, Danbare to Gwarzo road, in Kumbotso Local Government area.
The call followed a motion presented by Mudassir Ibrahim (PDP-Kumbotso) which was also adopted by the legislators. (NAN)
