The Managing Director of Kano State Road and Traffic Agency (KAROTA), Alhaji (Dr.) Baffa Babba Dan-Agundi is a personality to reckon with when it comes to commitment and dedication. These and many more other qualities are believed to be the driving forces behind his successes in all his human endeavours.

From his track record of service to humanity, Alhaji Dan-Agundi has proven to live to the expectation of the people, especially those he directly served. It is needless to mention that his clean mind had endeared him to be appointed by the state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as the Chief Executive of the road traffic agency with a mandate to use his experte to turn around the agency.

Dr. Dan-Agundi has contributed immensely toward the victory of the Ganduje administration during this year’s general election at the various corners across the 44 local government areas in the state.

His good background being from a good and dedicated family, he learnt to respect people since when he was young and he is always at their support at all the time. One good thing that cannot be snatched away from him is that he is a trustworthy and religious person and above all, God-fearing.

Being a blessing to his dear state, Governor Ganduje, also known as Khadimul Islam who, in his own wisdom, has carried out so many projects across the state like roads, underpasses, hospitals and those on agricultural reinvigoration, needs people like the current Managing Director of KAROTA around to help him in easing the stress of the people of the state.

Appointing Dr. Dan-Agundi at the agency is indeed putting things at the right places. It could be deduced that from the time he was appointed to date, the agency could beat its chest to assert that a lot has been achieved within these few months of his leadership. He has been doing all that is possible within his powers and the laws of the state and the nation to corroborate the governor’s zeal and determination to make the state achieve greater feats as far as development initiative is concerned.

In the area of road traffic, he has so far done wonders as he made the agency staff up and doing all with his passion to ease traffic across all the roads within the metropolis. Now the staff work longer hours than before in accomplishing the above task.

Dr. Dan-Agundi, who introduced the policy of working for longer hours at dark period, had worked assiduously to fetch more recognition to the staff of the agency who are today more respected across the state and even beyond. Also their impact is much felt today under the leadership of Dan-Agundi.

The officers of the agency have been made to be receiving regular training under the new dispensation while their salary was being paid by the Ganduje administration without any delay and as at when due.

To show his commitment in uplifting the standard of the outfit, Dr. Dan-Agundi has so far repaired all its vehicles to ease movement of its personnel across the state.

KAROTA personnel today discharge their duties in a conducive atmosphere and this has helped in improving security across the state and easing traffic within Kano metropolis. From the year 1999 to date, there has never been period when traffic got more boosts than now following the leadership style and monitoring strategy of the current Managing Director.

For example, road from Kabuga Junction to Mandawari to Murtala Muhammad Special Hospital to Kwari Market was cleared of congestion, so also IBB Way from Radio Kano to Abattoir; and Yankura around Sabon Gari Market. He also succeeded in clearing the road around Malam Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital and Gadar Lado along Zaria Road within Kano city.

The people of the state express delight with this development and pray for him to record numerous successes throughout his tenure.

Dr. Dan-Agundi is not a sit-at-office chief executive. He goes all round operations by himself to see what is happening and take action by himself.

He received so many awards from various agencies and organizations within these few months in office and any where he goes, he is received with good face and respect, following his sterling achievements.

Some of his counterparts from various states across the federation come to the state to meet with and learn from him with a view to borrowing a leaf from his leadership style and achievements so that they may go to their respective states to build up from Dan-Agundi’s experience at the agency.

More grease to your elbow and may the sky be your limit.
