The leadership of Gwale local of government area council of Kano state on Saturday disassociate the Council from the litigation instituted by the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON), Kano Chapter against the Kano state government over joint accounts.
The rebuttal by Gwale Council came barely 24 hours after the leadership of ALGON, and 44 local government area Council of state dragged the state government to court over its joint accounts.
Acting Chairman of the Council, Bashir Kashim Dandago who spoke in Kano against the backdrop of the joint accounts controversy said the council was never consulted by ALGON leadership before its action against the state government.
Bashir Kashim Dandago said “No one sit with us, we have no discussion with the leadership of ALGON, and therefore they dont have our mandate to include Gwale in the anti people suit against the Kano state government.”
Dandago who was flanked by all the counsellors explained that “what the ALGON Chairman did is simply an impersonation, and it will be addressed at the court.”
He stressed that “in participatory democracy, the overall interest of the people come first before anything, and we cannot stand aloof in this direction.
Dandago stated “Gwale Council support the decision of the state government to site the multi billion naira three faced interchange bridge at the counci area due largely to its economic, and social importance .”
