Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has directed that the Sani Abacha Stadium and other government facilities be made available to all political parties for electioneering for the 2023 general election in Kano.
This is contained in a statement by the information commissioner, Muhammad Garba, on Monday.
“The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano state believes that as citizens, the opposition elements have the right to use public property for the conduct of campaigns,” said the statement.
It said, however, that security agencies must clear the political parties before accessing such facilities like the stadium.
The Kano government added that Mr Ganduje’s administration remained consistent in its policy of giving equal rights as a mark of its respect for democratic ideals and expressed the hope that the parties would conduct their campaign rallies peacefully.
