Kano State Government, on Thursday, dismissed as false and misleading a trending report on social media platforms on a purported plan to officially ban women regardless of any faith from driving automobiles.

The State Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, who made the clarification in a press statement, issued on Thursday, said the government had at no time contemplated on the matter.

He said the story, which could not be traced to any credible source, was nothing but the imaginary thinking of the authors.

“The trending story lacks any credibility and that is why it is wholly attributed to a source that cannot be substantiated,” it added.

Malam Garba stressed that, if at all there was such a plan, the state government does not have to be involved in any secretive meeting to decide on a critical issue that has to do with its teeming populace.
