Winner of the Kano Governor polls and Kano State Governor-Elect, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, has told those trekking from other parts of the country to the state over his victory to discontinue their journey.
On Wednesday, March 22, Yusuf had his spokesperson, Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa release a statement advising those trekking to the state should instead pray for ingenuity and divine guidance for and over his leadership in his aim to deliver the dividends of democracy. He pointed out that their prayers are enough show of support and celebration of his victory at the polls, and not miles of trekking, especially given the state of insecurity in the country.
The statement read:
“While thanking the supporters within and outside Kano State, the Governor-elect urged the trekkers to discontinue the journey as that may not reasonably contribute to solving lots of economic and social challenges awaiting the incoming government after taking over on May 29, 2023.
“The incoming Kano State government will be committed to a greater future of the people with security, health, education, economic, infrastructure and good welfare for aged, civil servants and private sector being the anthem of Engr. Abba led government.
“As a Kano people-centered Governor, Engr. Abba tasked all hands to be on deck towards ensuring the actualisation of Kwankwasiyya and the NNPP vision for responsive leadership that works for all in the State.”
