The Kano State government has concluded plans to sell 1, 373 houses to the civil servants occupying them.
Governor Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso of Kano said while distributing offers of application for the sale of the houses at Government House, Kano yesterday that the workers should take good care of the houses when they acquire them, saying government made the decision to enable the workers to own the houses.
Chairman of the Association of Civil Servants Residing in Government-Owned Houses Justice Wada Abubakar expressed gratitude to the government for the gesture.
Abubakar said the association had been making efforts since 2000 to ensure that the government sold the houses to them but the dream never materialised.
He described the opportunity as 'golden' and pledged that they would utilise it properly.
