KanoSstate Governor Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje on Wednesday withdrew land allotment from the area where a three-storey building collapsed on the Beirut Road, GSM market, arguing that “originally this place should only be a parking lot . It is too small for shop building.”
To the cheers of the marketers during his visit to the scene of the incident, Ganduje announced that a very powerful technical committee had been set up to investigate the incident and determine the cause of the tragedy.
“We need to know that every building must be designed and supervised by professionals from the start. Within a week, this committee will submit its report and we will act on it as best we can,” he said.
He urged the marketers to work with the workers excavating rubble, adding: “After the site is properly excavated, the government will immediately begin providing appropriate parking space.”
Ganduje was on the occasion with his deputy, Nasiru Gawuna, some commissioners and some top government officials.
