Abba Kabir Yusuf otherwise known as Abba Gida-gida who is the Kano state Governor-Elect has told those trekking from other parts of the country to the North-West state over his victory to discontinue their journey.
In a statement released on Wednesday, March 22, by his spokesperson, Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, Yusuf said those trekking should instead pray for ingenuity and guidance for his leadership towards delivering the dividends of democracy.
He stated that the prayers are enough show of solidarity 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.”
