Again, El-Rufai Threatens To Demolish Hunkuyi’s House
The senator representing Kaduna Noth Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Suleiman Hunkuyi, on Wednesday, alleged that Governor Nasir El-Rufai had started a fresh plot to demolish his personal house on Inuwada Wada Road, Ugwan Rimi, Kaduna North Local Government Area of the state.
On Wednesday evening, the senator in his twitter handle displayed the fresh grand rent bill sent to him by the Kaduna State Geographic Information Service.
The agency asked the senator to pay the grand rent within 30 days of the receipt of the said bill.
Hunkuyi in his twitter handle said, “Once again, @GovKaduna Malam @elrufai has sent a ridiculous bill to me for a purported ground rent of my personal house at Inuwa Wada to the tune of N30m to be paid within 30 days, failure to do so might probably result to another demolition like he did to my other property.”
The bill which was addressed to “Alhaji Suleiman Uthman of 18A Inuwa Wada Road and dated 20th February, 2018,” indicated that, Hunkuyi owed the state a grand rent of N31.4m from 1995 to date.
The bill signed on behalf of the Director General of the KADGIS, urged the senator to pay the said grand rent within 30 days
The bill read, “You are therefore requested to pay the total of N31,467,861.6. You are also expected to pay this amount at any commercial bank into the KADGIS PAYDirect platform. This bill should be paid within 30 days please.”
However, in another tweet, Hunkuyi said he had since last year paid his dues to the Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service and that he had receipt to back his claim.
Hunkuyi said the request by the state government for another N30m was a blatant display of abuse of power by El-Rufai.
“As of last year 2017, I’ve paid my dues to the Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service and they have duly issued me receipts to that effect. This letter today demanding N30m within 30 days is draconian and indeed blatant display of abuse of power as arrogantly portrayed by @elrufai,” Hunkuyi tweeted.
