Governor Nasir El-Rufai Shuts Up Bukola Saraki, Remains Unstoppable, Set To Demolish The Private Residence Of A High Ranking Senator

The Governor Nasir El-Rufai-led Kaduna State Government, has threatened to bring down the private residence of the Senator representing Kaduna North, Sulaiman Hunkuyi, located at No. 18B Inuwa Wada Road, U/Rimi, for non-payment of land use rent.

This is coming barely 48 hours after demolishing the Secretariat of the State’s All Progressives Congress, APC; the faction loyal to the two suspended Senators – Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central, and Hunkuyi.

The Kaduna State Government intends to demolish the said property, should the Senator fail to pay the 25 years outstanding land use rent.

However, explaining its motive for the earlier demolition, the Director-General, Kaduna State Geographical Information Service, KSGIS, Ibrahim Husseini, in a statement, said the land was revoked and the building ‘removed’ for flagrant violations of land use and non-payment of rent since 2010.

Similarly, on Wednesday, the KSGIS served Hunkuyi a notice for non-payment of land use rent for 24 years on his private residence.

The Agency, after computing the outstanding rent from 1995 till date (2018), amounts to over N31.5million.

According to the notice, Mr. Hunkuyi is expected to pay within 30 days of service. Failure to comply will result in demolition.

Furthermore, an inside source said there is more to this notice than meet the eyes, adding that, the actual amount payable for the land use in Kaduna State is N10, 000.

“How did it skyrocket to N61,160? How could the same rate be charged from 1995 to date?”, the source queried.

The source further alleged that there is a political undertone to all these harassments,; from party Secretariat, now to his private residence.

Recall, that the Senate President Bukola Saraki-led Senate had ordered the Kaduna State Government to compensate the Senator for the earlier demolition of the State APC Secretariat, all to no avail.
