Others are the Cancer Treatment Centre at Muhammadu Buhari Specialist Hospital, Giginyum and the Muhammadu Buhari Road Interchange at NNPC Mega Station Hotoro.
Abdulahi Ganduje, governor of the state had tried to post pone the presidential visit, saying the naira swap was causing hardship and it could have some security risk.
Ganduje had in an interactive session with critical stakeholders, including scholars, legislators, political leaders and business community in the state, revealed that his administration had requested the president to postpone his official visit to the state.
He said the state was deeply concerned about the hardship principally induced by the ongoing cash swap from old to redesigned naira notes. Thus the decision to postpone the visit and avoid any unforeseen circumstance.
But barely 24 hours to the visit, the governor had made a U-turn, saying the state was ready to host the president.
”Kano is now prepared to receive the Nigerian leader,” he said.
