Kano state Governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso has directed the state Ministry of Land and Physical Planning to convert the refuse dumping ground at Court road in Kano metropolis to sports field for people around the area and provide alternative, modern refuse disposal site for the people of the area.
He said the present site constitutes health hazard to the people of the area and it has to be changed to save the people from having unnecessary problems.
Similarly, the governor instructed the Ministry to construct an Islamiyya school close to the Friday Mosque at Amana city for inhabitants to enrol their children.

Governor Kwankwaso further ordered contractors at Amana and Kwankwasiyya Cities to speed up work on culverts and drainages, noting further with dismay that the way some interlocks were laid in the two cities contravened the contractual specifications.
He, therefore, ordered the contractors to remove the interlocks and replace them appropriately as agreed upon by the both parties. The governor also visited Kofar Nassarawa flyover which is nearing completion.
