Inundated with plans on fixing Kano State and restoring the pride and confidence of the people that have been battered in eight years, the state Governor-elect, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, has urged his supporters and members of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) to embark on prayers to Allah for ingenuity and guidance for his leadership towards delivering the dividends of democracy.
The prayers, he said, are sufficient as a show of solidarity and celebration of his victory at the polls last Saturday, and not miles of trek by some of his enthusiasts in some quarters especially given the state of insecurity with banditry, kidnapping and terrorism threatening peaceful movement of people and goods across the length and breadth of the country.
While thanking the supporters within and outside the state, the governor-elect urged the trekkers to discontinue the journey as that may not reasonably contribute to solving lots of economic and social challenges awaiting the incoming government after taking over on May 29, 2023.
In a statement signed by Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, the Spokesperson to Governor- elect, Engr. Yusuf said the incoming government will be committed to a greater future of the people with security, health, education, economic, infrastructure and good welfare for aged, civil servants and private sector being the anthem of Engr. Abba led administration.
As a Kano people – centered Governor, Engr. Abba tasked all hands to be on deck towards ensuring the actualisation of Kwankwasiyya and the NNPP vision for responsive leadership that works for all in the state.
