My Government Will Be A Replica Of Kwankwaso’s-Kano Governor -Elect



Kano Governor Elect Abba Kabir Yusuf

Kano State Governor-Elect, Engr. Abba Kabiru Yusuf has restated commitment to continue with the laudable populace policies of the Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso led administration.

NIGERIAN TRACKER reports that Abba cited the polices to include good qualitative education, empowerment programmes, policies and programs that promote skills acquisition and entrepreneurship, the completion of abandoned projects, free maternal healthcare program and provision of conducive atmosphere for the development of businesses within the state.

Abba Kabiru Yusuf stated this on Monday in his acceptance speech after his declaration by INEC as winner of the March 18th, 2023 governorship election.

Our administration will be an off-shot of the Kwankwaso administration and we assure the good people of Kano State, ‘’Abba Yusuf said.

He vowed not to deviate from his campaign promises and the road map of the NNPP in developing the state.

The governor elect appreciated the support of all and sundry towards attainment of the success of the election.

According to him, ‘’our unflinching gratitude goes to the entire people of the state. We recognize your determination, courage, loyalty, commitment as well as your ferocious resolve to defend your sovereign rights and the integrity of our democracy.’’

the fact that our party the NNPP is relatively new coupled with the fact that the logo of our party was poorly depicted on the ballot paper and wide spread electoral violence; you still gave us your mandate. We had no money and due to the inflicted poverty on the citizenry the government took advantage by buying votes of the people with both the new and old currencies and distributing wrappers and other household items to voters. Against all these odds you still came out in-mass to give us your mandate. Indeed, “Taliya bata zabe”.

We are profoundly grateful and will not take your mandate for granted. Our unreserved commendation goes to members of the armed forces whom were deployed to Kano for the election and most of other security agencies and indeed the Independent Electoral Commission for maintaining their neutrality by keeping the peace and promptly responding to our genuine complaints before, during and after the elections. In the same vein, I salute and commend the patriotism of members of the media for their coverage and also applaud and appreciate the role played by members of the Civil Society and the numerous

domestic and international observer groups that worked tirelessly towards ensuring free, fair and credible elections.

‘’We cannot complete this acceptance speech without thanking our leader and mentor, His Excellency Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso for his untiring effort that led to the declaration of our mandate today as

Governor and Deputy Elect. Finally, we thank all people of goodwill across the country and even foreign nationals. It is our hope that you will continue to support us towards the successful discharge of our mandate.’’
