Kano High Court Presided over by Justice Lawan Wada, has granted an injunction restraining the use of Kwankwassiya’s inscriptions on Public buildings in the state.
Abdullahi Maraya Barkum, Hamisu Danwawu and Hassan Sani Indabawa who are the Plaintiffs had last two years slammed a case against former Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso in the State High Court challenging him to erase Kwankwassiya’s name on public buildings.
According to the write of summons, the Plaintiffs joined the former governor Kwankwaso, his Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice and the State government as defendants, saying the law of the land prevents anybody from using public funds to discriminate and promote personal ego of an individual against the collective interest of public.
However in the judgement delivered by Justice Lawan Wada, ruled that all public projects executed or being executed by the 1st and 3rd are done with public funds available to the 3rd defendants on behalf of all the people and persons of Kano State.
He granted perpetual injunction that using public funds to promote personal ego of any individual or private groups in any form is illegal, unlawful and unconstitutional.
The judge further granted an order of mandatory injunction compelling the defendants to remove the inscription of Kwankwasiyya on all public properties in Kano State forthwith.
Justice Wada also granted injunction restraining the defendants from further inscribing the name Kwankwassiya on all public properties in Kano State or where ever they may be grooved or inscribed. (Peoples Daily)
