Kano State Governor-elect, Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf says his government will quickly fix problems with basic needs of people of Kano, starting with provision of potable water, basic education and good healthcare.

This is contained in a statement by Spokesperson to the Governor-elect, Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa on Friday.

According to the statement, the Governor Elect said despite huge tax payers’ money the outgoing administration claimed to have committed to the provision of basic water, Kano households struggle with access safe drinking water.

Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf who was quoted during his acceptance speech 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 involving provision of school uniform, 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-shot of Kwankwaso administration, will be committed to free maternal and child healthcare programmes 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 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 added.
