The multi-million dollar Golden Jubilee Monument, constructed by the last governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, has been destroyed by the Kano State Government under Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf.
The monument, which is located near the Kano Government House roundabout, was constructed in 2017 to mark the state’s 50th anniversary.
The new Kano government enlisted the roundabout to its demolition plans following move to restore the state’s masterplan.
Governor Abba Yusuf had earlier given orders to the task force to demolish all structures built on government lands illegally.
Malls, shops in markets and around schools have since been demolished by the task force.
