Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has ordered the relocation of Kano Zoological Gardens from its current location in the state metropolis.
The state Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Ibrahim Ahmed, made the disclosure on Wednesday, said its present location inconveniences the animals which, according to him, do not like noise.
Speaking with Freedom Radio Kano, the commissioner said the zoo would be relocated to Tiga town in Bebeji Local Government Area of the state.
He said: “We are working towards relocating Kano Zoo because the present location of the zoo is surrounded by human population. Most of these animals don’t like noise.”
“We will, therefore, relocate the zoo and upgrade it to an international standard.”
