APC crisis: El-Rufai commences building on Senator Hunkuyi’s land

The plot of land belonging to Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, has been converted to a children’s park by the Kaduna State Government.

A storey-building belonging to Senator Hunkuy was demolished in the place earlier this year.

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

he Senator in an interview with reporters, accused the government of “violating a subsisting court order stopping further action on the land.”

However, Vanguard quoted an official of the State Urban Planning and Development Agency, KASUPDA, as saying that since the certificate of occupancy of the land had been revoked, the agency no longer had any encumbrance on the land.

“You recall that when the property was demolished, the ownership was revoked and the plot was handed over to us, so we are now building a children’s park there,“ the official said.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