Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has awarded a contract for the construction of late Sheikh Abubakar Ramadan Centre for Islamic Propagation.
Governor Ganduje gave the indication when the management of Sheikh Abubakar Ramadan Institute for Higher Islamic Studies paid him a courtesy visit at Kano Government House recently.
He said the contract was awarded to ASASCO for more than N40million for the building of the school and mosque at the Centre.
He maintained that Kano has been enjoying the peaceful atmosphere as a result of constant prayers, thanking them for propagating peace and stability in the state.
In his remark, Sheikh Abdulkadir Ramadan Abubakar Ramadan expressed their appreciation, saying the mosque and school when completed would go a long way in propagating Islam.
He thanked Governor Ganduje for ensuring that they realized their father’s dream of establishing an Islamic institute, about 20 years since the death of Sheikh Abubakar Ramadan.
He also commended the governor for his contributions toward Islamic propagation through Ganduje Foundation even before he assumed the mantle of leadership.
Meanwhile, Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has commended the state’s Public Complaints Commission for providing services to the less-privileged people.
The governor made the commendation when the Federal Commissioner, Public Complaints Commission paid him a courtesy visit at Kano Government House.
He described the Commission as an important institution that provides justice to people especially the less-privileged members of the society, saying many people have been benefiting from the services and advice of the Commission while many have recovered what they would have lost.
Ganduje then expressed happiness over the existing synergy between the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Agency and the Public Complaints Commission.
Earlier in his remark, the Federal Commissioner, Public Complaints Commission Ahmad Ado Dadin Kowa had said the Commission aimed at ensuring quality administration and efficiency, saying many cases were resolved by the Commission in the state without collecting a penny from the complainants.
He commended the state anti-corruption agency for partnering with them in the area of fighting corruption and conflict resolutions, adding that the Commission has the power to investigate any matter brought before them and has the mandate to carry out a self-initiated investigation
“We receive all sorts of complaints because we have a very good relationship with other agencies”, Dadin Kowa added.
