Ganduje the hero
By Engr. Garba Ahmad Kofar Wambai
The Executive Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje is, in my candid opinion, the best governor the good people of Kano State have ever had in history since the state was created.
The Governor is an extra-ordinary governor who covers so many years under his first tenure, making him to secure his re-election in the 2019 general elections.
Khadimul Islam is a good governor who has good intention towards the people of Kano and is the only governor who has completed so many abandoned projects abandoned by five previous administrations in the state.
In African countries, more especially Nigeria, most governments do abandon projects initiated by their predecessors.
In Kano State there are so many projects like roads, hospitals, bridges and underpasses etc. which were abandoned by the previous administrations but which the current and determined Governor of Kano State has the zeal and determination to ensure that all such projects abandoned by the previous administrations are completed and this he did in his first tenure
Ganduje the hero
Khadimul Islam completed Giginyu and Zoo Road hospitals. The Zoo Road hospital was named after President MuhammaduBuhari and also completed the longest bridge in Africa abandoned at just 15 per cent completion level. This bridge starts from Triumph Publishing Company Roundabout to Yankura Market, SabonGari Market and down to nnear Club Road Roundabout. He also completed KofarGadon Kaya Under pass etc.
Khadimul Islam also initiated his administration’s projects and completed them 100 per cent. Such projects are SabonTitinMadobi Underpass, KofarRuwa Underpass, Dan-Agundi to Emir’s Palace Road, SabontitinMadobi to Panshekara Road, GandunAlbasaRroad, SabuwarGandu to Danmaliki to Kumbotso Road, the overhead, underpass and bridge at Dangi Zaria Road initiated and completed within four months and many more across the state.
Governor Ganduje also plays a vital role in the education sector where he built thousands of classrooms across the state and employed additional teachers- both male and female- at all levels.
He also paid the school fees for those students Kwankwaso claimed he sponsored to overseas but who were left stranded and Governor Ganduje settled their fees without delay.
In the health sector, his administration has achieved a lot where he equipped and renovated all health facilities across the 44 local governments within Kano State as well as employed health workers at all levels.
No single governor across the Federal Republic of Nigeria has executed a lot of giant projects in his state like our best Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
Most states find it difficult to pay workers salary and fail to execute projects, but in Kano no single month passes without salary not being paid and when due.
Ganduje the hero
The Governor is a dedicated and hard working person who has dismantled politics of god-father style the state and appointed deserving and right people as his managing directors.
The entire people of Kano are happy with the recent development where the Governor established historic four more emirates across the state and this too, will never be forgotten.
No doubt this will improve security across the state and create so many job opportunities.
He also improved water treatment and supply across the state which has enabled the good people of Kano to have access to potable drinking water under improved health.
Governor Ganduje is a blessing to the good people of Kano State. He deserves praising, support and prayers to be guided to the right path.
