A Chieftain of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Auwal Mansur Galadanchi, has commended the governor of Kano state, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, for carrying out in 100 days human capital development programmes aimed at tackling poverty in the state.
Galadanchi, gave the commendation on Thursday in a congratulatory message to the governor on his 100th day in office.
The party chieftain also hailed the governor for its service delivery.
The statement reads: “Your Excellency, it is with great honour and joy that I congratulate you on the commemoration of the 100th day since you were bestowed the mantle of leadership of Kano State.
“In 100 days, you have demonstrated that politics that delivers service to the people does not have to exclude decency, integrity and compassion.
“The immediate construction of the Faculty of Engineering Building in the Yusuf Maitama Sule University was an astute and yet nuanced indication of your determination to position Kano State as a knowledge driven hub for technological innovation/ industrialisation.
“Your decision to provide financial support for 7000 Kano State students, studying at the Bayero University, Kano and your decision to resume sponsorship of First-Class students to pursue Post-graduate Degrees in foreign universities lent proof to your grasp of the need for human capacity development to service Kano State as a modern economy.
“Furthermore, the reduction of school fees across all state-owned tertiary institutions by as much as 50% highlighted your empathy and strategic move to empower families and young people across the state to join the modern and formal economy without which Kano State cannot emerge as a 21st Century force,” he said.
He stated further: “The distribution of N1.6 billion to the very poor and economically vulnerable people of the state; the approval of payment of benefits to families of deceased employees of the state’s civil service who lost their lives between the years 2018 and 2023; the prompt payment of pensioners; the resumption of water supply across the state, among others, had brought illumination to Yusuf’s purposive personality.
