His Excellency, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf was sworn-in as the Executive Governor of Kano State on May 29, 2023 having scored the highest number of votes and having satisfied all necessary requirements of the law as explicitly enshrined in the 2022 Electoral Act as amended.

The State capital had witnessed the most largest political gathering ever where people came from every nooks and crannies of the country to be part of this epoch making swearing-in ceremony.

In the build up to the general election, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf had on many occasions during the campaign rallies across the state promised to consolidate on the gains that have been recorded by his Political mentor, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso bordering on free and compulsory education, medical service delivery for all, security and welfare of the teeming populace, agriculture, water supply and youth employment and empowerment programmes as part of his administration’s commitment to human capital development.

Immediately after the swearing-in ceremony, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf swung into action by embarking on an on the spot assessment visit by traveling all the way to Kiru reformatory school. The purpose of the visit was to assess the condition of the school in preparation for the full utilisation of the institution to combat drug abuse, thuggery, phone snatching, juvenile delinquency and many other anti social tendencies across the state.

It is equally important to NOTE that in just under 100 days, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf was able to accomplish many of the campaign promises because he has appointed his Commissioners, MDs, Heads of Parastatals and other key Political appointments as early as possible and based on merit, competence and sheer commitment to the cause. And for clarity and context, here is the summary of what Kano people had witnessed under the stewardship of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf:-
(1) Revoking, rehabilitation and reopening of Hasiya Bayero paediatric hospital
(2) Rehabilitation of Murtala Muhammad specialist hospital
(3) Rehabilitation of health facilities across the state
(4) Procurement of drugs and consumables to health facilities
(5) Rehabilitation and reopening of Kiru reformatory school
(6) Prompt payment of staff salary
(7) Suspension of all illegal deductions on staff salary and monthly pension
(8) Constitution of committee for the settlement of gratuity backlog
(9) Disbursement of funds for overseas scholarships
(10) Disbursement of funds for BUK students
(11) Disbursement of funds for “AUREN ZAWARAWA”
(12) Completion of outstanding 5KM roads across LGAs
(13) Completion of “WUJU-WUJU” road in the state metropolis
(14) Distribution of Cows, Sheep and Goats as empowerment package
(15) Distribution of food items as palliative measures
(16) Reconstruction of Government’s House roundabout on security ground
(17) Demolition of illegal structures across the state
(18) Reconstitution of Committees for rehabilitation of primary schools across the state
(19) Reactivation of water treatment plants in the state
(20) Reactivation of streetlights across the state metropolis
(21) Settlement of outstanding NECO fees
(22) Reestablishment of REMASAB as part of commitment to ensure healthy and clean environment and many other gigantic projects too numerous to mention here.

The new administration under the exemplary leadership of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf had successfully executed the aforementioned programmes simply because of His exceptional leadership skills, resilience, perseverance, monitoring, evaluation and prudent management of resources.

Equally and in the same vein, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso will be the most happiest man in Kano state as he will be assured that the person he had anointed had already exceeded all expectations in the context of general performance, responsive and responsible leadership.

Lastly, the long standing relationship between Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso and Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf will never be severed as it is a unique relationship that was built on a concrete foundation of mutual respect and trust.
