Kano State Government has maintained that it adopted the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model in selling public property to rejuvenate the state’s economy and infrastructure deficit.
It also refuted the allegation by the opposition that the government was selling the public property outright to private entities.
In a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, the government disclosed that the said property was rather managed under the PPP concept, which was grossly misunderstood by the public.
According to the statement, the government took the decision to revitalise under-performing assets in partnership with willing investors, as part of moves to bring Kano at par with modernity for befitting mega city status.
“The PPP arrangement, one of the best global practices, is a long-term contract between the private sector and a government agency for providing a public asset or service, in which the private party bears significant risk and management responsibility.
