He also urged the contractors to ensure timely completion of the project.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the wall, built in the 11th century, is under threat as a result of human encroachment and collapse.

The structure, known across the world as the ‘famous Kano city wall and gates’ was built to prevent enemies and the armies of empires that were in search of vassal states to expand and increase their royalties from penetrating Kano.
