You Can’t Give Largest Share To Lagos – Kano Governor Faults President Tinubu Over Distribution Of N500billion Palliatives

 

The Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir has faulted the mode that the President Bola Tinubu-led federal government adopted for the distribution of N500billion palliatives for small-scale industries.

The Nigerian government had announced that it would be using the Bank of Industry to support small-scale industries across geopolitical zones.

Speaking through his deputy, Aminu Abdussalam, the governor during a meeting with representatives from the Kano Cooperative Society at the state government house said the distribution was heavily skewed in favour of Lagos State and the South-South zone to the disadvantage of other states and zones, Daily Trust reports.

He said the distribution mode would see Lagos receiving 47% of the allocation, followed by the South-South Zone with 17%, and other regions receiving significantly lower percentages.

“This is unfair, unconstitutional, and illegal,” the governor said.

He called on relevant authorities, including members of the National Assembly to rectify the situation and take appropriate action against those responsible.
