Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has rejected the former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso’s donation of a newly-built 60-bed capacity hospital as isolation center for Coronavirus patients in the state. This information was disclosed by Kwankwaso’s Kwankwasiyya Foundation.
According to the statement, the hospital, named Amana Hospital located at Miller Road, Bompai in the city of Kano was built, equipped and well furnished by Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, a former Senate who represented Kano Central during the 8th Assembly.
On Friday, a few weeks thereafter, Kwankwasiyya Movement took to twitter to disclose that Mr Ganduje had refused to acknowledge the gesture nor put the same to a use even as the covid-19 cases in Kano keep rising.

“Millions of lives are at stake but Ganduje is playing politics with the donation of the hospital by Kwankwasiyya Foundation.
“Gov. Ganduje refused to take a donation of a hospital as an isolation center from Kwankwaso in order to save lives in Kano because of a mere political grudge,”
Reacting to the development, Twitter users expressed mixed reactions with one user stating that if what the movement claimed is true, then, Governor Ganduje’s decision is bad.
He said: “If that’s true, then it’s too bad. I thought they have settled their differences considering the esteemed regards people have for them.”
However, not everyone agrees that Ganduje is playing politics following his silence in acknowledging the hospital built by his predecessor.
