El-Rufai, who spoke in Hausa, said: “Those who built their houses close to students’ classrooms or hospitals no matter how much it will cost us we will compensate them to get back our lands,” he said.
“We are only recovering public schools, hospital lands for the benefit of our children and grandchildren in the state.
