El Rufai converts Hunkuyi’s land to children’s park

By Ben Agande

Kaduna—The Kaduna State Government has converted the plot of land where a  story building belonging to Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, was demolished, to a children’s park.


Already, work has commenced on the site with the area fenced off and people working in earnest.

But the Senator, in an interview, accused the government of violating a subsisting court order stopping further action on the land.

An official of the State Urban Planning and   Development Agency, KASUPDA,  said since the certificate of occupancy of the land had been revoked, the agency no longer had any encumbrance on the land.

“You recall that when the property was demolished, the ownership was revoked and the plot was handed over to us, so we are now building a children’s park there,“ the official said.

The State Government as defendant in the suit had accused the senator of building on land meant for green area, thereby violating the state master plan.

Hunkuyi said the government’s action was a threat to democracy and should be condemned because “if it is Hunkuyi today, it can be any other person tomorrow.“

He promised to challenge government action at the court of appeal.
