Ganduje appoints new Head of Service

Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje has ordered intensified rescue operations to all those trapped in the rubble of a three-storey building at the “GSM” market along Beirut road in Kano metropolis.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, on Tuesday in Kano.

Garba also said the governor has suspended the swearing-in ceremony of commissioners earlier scheduled for Wednesday in honour of victims of the collapsed building.

“While lamenting the unfortunate incident, the governor assured that investigation is ongoing to unravel the cause of the collapsed structure which was under construction,” he qouted Ganduje as saying.

He said that the governor also shared the sad moment with the victims of Monday’s flooding that occurred in many parts of the metropolis, during which, valuable items were lost in the deluge.

It was reported that eight persons were rescued alive and others trapped inside the building.

Our correspondent reports that the building was under construction but the ground floor was occupied and it was reported that people were shopping there when the building collapsed.
