POLITICS DIGEST – Kano governor-elect, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, has reiterated that his incoming government will fix some of the vital projects abandoned by the current Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s led administration.
According to him, his government will quickly solve the problems of lack of potable water, basic education and good healthcare, which he said are fundamental duties of a responsive government.
These were contained in a statement signed on Friday by his spokesperson, Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa.
Abba Gida Gida as he is popularly adored by his teeming supporters rued that Kano people still suffer from lack of potable water supply despite the huge tax payers’ money the outgoing administration claimed to have committed to the project.
He added that the provision of basic water which Kano households are sadly lacking, despite being endowed with functional dams is one of the basic responsibilities of a responsible government.
In his acceptance speech, he reassured Kano people that beyond fixing basic water supply, the incoming government will uphold the Kwankwasiyya philosophy with a wider scope of free education at primary and secondary levels, as well as the provision of school uniform, learning materials, meals and conducive environment.
He also promised that his government will pay students’ SSCE fees, and ensures teachers embark on periodical capacity buildings in order to equip them to impact quality education on students.
The incoming administration, which he said will be an off-shot of Kwankwaso administration, will be committed to free maternal and child healthcare programmes, assuring that plans are underway for the upgrading of local health facilities across the 44 Local Government Areas of Kano State.
On bridging the human capital gap in the various public institutions, he added that his administration will revive Kwankwasiyya scholarship scheme for tertiary education and terminal degrees in special areas such as medicine, science and engineering in foreign countries.
“It is a resolution that the incoming government will complete abandoned projects and continue with laudable populist policies of Kwankwassiyya administrations just as youth empowerment and enabling environment for MSMES and entrepreneurship to flourish will be provided as enshrined in the Campaign Blueprint”, he said.
