Governor Yusuf promises new measures to end thuggery, phone

The Kano government has promised to introduce measures to check thuggery and other criminal activities in the state.

The promise was made by Governor Abba Kabir when he spoke to thousands of supporters on Sunday in Kano.

He said the government is also poised to take decisive steps to address the problems of drug abuse and sales of illicit drugs in the state.

Yusuf shared that his administration would not condone a situation where drug abuse would waste the lives of the people of the state, especially the youths.

He assured that the government is very concerned with the safety of the masses.

“From tomorrow, Monday, we will embark on measures to check drug abuse, sales of illicit drugs, thuggery and other forms of crimes, so as to ensure a drug-free, safe and secure Kano,” he said.

He thanked the people of the state, especially the youths, for the rousing welcome they accorded him and for their support and prayers for him and his Deputy, Comrade Aminu Abdulsalam Gwarzo, throughout the period they were in court “to defend the mandate you gave us.”

“By the grace of Allah, we will reciprocate this gesture as we will continue to roll out more dividends of democracy for you, especially in the areas of education, healthcare, empowerment and infrastructure development,” Yusuf said.

He then thanked the NNPP national leader and the Kwankwasiyya political movement leader, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, for “the able leadership he has been rendering to us.”

He further expressed gratitude to President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima for not interfering with the Supreme Court processes which led to his affirmation as the duly elected Governor of Kano State.

“Thank you, President Bola Tinubu, Thank you, Vice President Kashim Shettima for doing the needful and saving democracy in Kano State and Nigeria. We, the people of Kano State are grateful to you,” the governor said.

Lastly, commended the Judges of the Supreme Court for treating his appeal dispassionately and delivering judgement accordingly, which he said had boosted the image of the judiciary and also helped in saving democracy in Nigeria.
