Kano Govt revealed the reason she demolished Government House roundabout

Demolished Roundabout

The Kano State Government demolished a historical roundabout on Tuesday night, which was located in front of the government house.

Many people backlash against the government's decision to demolish that historical roundabout that showcases Hausa Land and specifically Kano State culture.

But according to the government, the demolition is in the best interest of the general public.

According to Chief Press Secretary to the Governor Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa in a statement on Wednesday, the government consulted professional Engineers in the relevant field who determined that the roundabout construction was substandard and has the potential to collapse between 2023 and 2024.

“This is because it is done with used formwork with too much sandy materials instead of normal concrete.

“Also, the structure is too tall to be placed in front of the seat of power as it defaces the main gate of the government house which blocks the view for security surveillance.

“Additionally, it poses traffic challenges  around the area because  its size is blocking  the view of drivers accessing all routes linked through the  roundabout.

“The government wishes to make it clear that it became necessary to take down the structure for the purposes of immediate reconstruction and downsizing to ensure visibility of the government house entrance and safety of motorists,” the government statement added.
