Kano Government to Relocate Golden Jubilee Tower

Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has announced his administration’s plan to rebuild the recently demolished Golden Jubilee Tower in the state capital.

The state government initially demolished the tower, erected in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the creation of Kano, as part of the ongoing demolitions of structures linked to the immediate past governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

However, following the public outcry that trailed the destruction of the edifice, the government later claimed that the structure, which was constructed in front of the Kano Government’s House, was demolished for security reasons.

An official of the government also stressed that the tower was demolished due to a cross sign on it.

However, in what seemed to be a move to quell the outrage that greeted the demolition, the administration has announced that it has now concluded plans to relocate and reconstruct the original design of the demolished Golden Jubilee Tower at Naibawa Roundabout.

“Kano state government is to reinstate the design of the demolished roundabout at Naibawa Flyover,” said Hisham Habib, spokesperson to the governor.

Habib noted that the roundabout was a more suitable location for the structure adding that it would not pose any security challenge to residents of the commercial city.
