Tricycle Strike: PDP Accuses Ganduje of Economic Sabotage

Published

on

 

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has notice with dismay, the intention of the Kano state governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to destroy the daily economic activities in the state for refusing to reconcile with striking tricycle riders for the last three days.

Kano is known for various commercial activities on daily basis and the means of transportation remains the major pillar with the tricycle riders as catalysts who cater for at least 80 per cent of the routine movements within the metropolitan city.

It is very pertinent to note that Ganduje’s administration has failed its citizens in every ramification, particularly, the state government has done nothing in the transport sector for the seven years of its existence rather it truncated the students transportation systems introduced by the govt. of Engr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

Ganduje and his cohorts have turned the Kano Road Traffic Agency (KAROTA) into a major revenue generating agency instead of being a traffic regulatory agency as it was established to serve with that purpose.

In a statement by Alhaji Wada Sagagi the chairman of people’s Democratic party in Kano said hundreds of thousands of the youth are engaged in this business and it generates both employment and state revenue, only a government without a clear economic directions can fight a self-employed youth, women and other individuals at a time when the nation faces a dwindling economy and insecurity that put citizen into abject poverty.

PDP wishes to further stress that govt. should as matter of urgency address this issue because allowing this crises to linger on it retains the tendency to degenerate into chaos and disturb the prevailing peace in the state as teaming number of our youth are left without means of livelihood.

Governor Ganduje and members of his cabinet kept mum despite being fully aware of the sufferings faced by the residents of Kano, which include but not limited to business men and women, civil servants, students of both primary, secondary and tertiary schools, people seeking for medical attention in various health facilities and visitors of the state.

In these three days of tricycle strike, Kano has lost billions of naira, businesses have suffered and many offices have not been in full operations because of the strike while state government remains reluctant to take any decisive action that could rescue the situation.
