While speaking to journalists Saturday, chairman of the party, Isa Sadiq Achida, described the governor’s action as a calculated attempt to create confusion in the state, saying, “Every right-thinking person knows what the governor did was wrong. His motive was to create confusion and problems for the incoming government but he would not succeed.”
Achida said apart from the teaching hospital which is still under construction, the rest of the institutions were built by his predecessors.
On whether their government would review the names, he said “only the incoming governor can decide that.
