Governor Abba emphasized the importance of addressing the problems of hunger and malnutrition with the difficulties in education and healthcare.

The Governor of Kano State, Nigeria, said as he reviewed celebrations commemorating the 63rd anniversary of Nigeria’s independence: “we are determined to look to the future with hope, belief, and careful plans devoid of the encumbrances of the burden of the past.”

He went on to say, “We are working deliberately to break away from the circle of despair, poverty, insecurity, and youth restiveness, all of which are products of bad leadership.”

The state’s governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, said that in the four months since he took office, his administration has taken some “bold steps” to ensure the safety of residents and their belongings, including making crimes like phone theft and vandalism on the streets a thing of the past.

To prevent our youth from falling victim to this evil, we have taken strong action against its distribution and use. He continued, “We believe that preventative measures are not enough to stop these vices, so we have reopened all of our institutes for skill acquisition to equip our teeming youth with soft and hard skills and empower them with startup capital to start their SMEs and contribute to the development of our State and our nation.”

A statement from Governor Abba reads, “We have made strong initiatives to revamp our Education and Healthcare sectors. Schools are being updated in waves; in the initial phase, students at pilot schools received free uniforms, backpacks, and shoes in addition to free exercise books and textbooks. And plans have progressed to the point that every elementary school student will receive one free lunch every day.

To get rid of the youngsters who are not in school, the Chief Executive has announced that his government is constructing new schools in each of the 44 Local Government areas.

As part of a pilot program to encourage parents to send their daughters to school, he suggested that the government was providing stipends of 20,000 Naira to more than 45,000 females.

We are also re-establishing transportation service for female students to and from school. This academic session, we are sending 1001 First-Class graduates to colleges abroad to pursue Master’s degrees as part of our high-level personnel development goal.
