The Kano State Governor-elect, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf has reaffirmed his government’s readiness to fix quickly the problems with the provision of potable water, basic education, and good healthcare which are fundamental duties of a responsive government.
A statement on Friday by Spokesperson to the Governor-elect, Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa, said despite huge tax payers’ money the outgoing administration claimed to have committed to the provision of basic water, Kano households strive in the twenty-first century to access safe drinking water in the State endowed with functional dams and resources to provide basic amenities.
In his acceptance speech, the Governor-elect reassured the Kano people that beyond fixing the basic water supply, the incoming government will uphold the Kwankwasiyya philosophy with a wider scope of free education at primary and secondary levels involving the provision of school uniforms, learning materials, meals, conducive environment, paying SSCE fees for the students, training, and motivation for the teachers to impart good quality education.
The incoming administration, which he said will be an off-shoot of the Kwankwaso administration, will be committed to free maternal and child healthcare programs just as plans are underway for the upgrading of local health facilities across the 44 Local Government Areas of Kano State.
To bridge the human capital gap in the various public institutions, Engr. Abba administration will rebirth the 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 the laudable populist policies of the Kwankwassiyya administrations just as youth empowerment and enabling environment for MSMEs and entrepreneurship to flourish will be provided as enshrined in the Campaign Blueprint.
