I am delighted that, H.E @MBuhari appreciates our modest achievements, particularly on the issue of completing inherited projects which is also a policy of the Federal Govt. Indeed the biggest beneficiaries of these projects are the people of Kano, & not the initiator or myself
President Buhari made these remarks while eulogizing the present governor for completing the projects in the state despite the fact that his predecessor (Kwankwaso) diverted the balance of the uncompleted projects to fund his presidential bid.
President Buhari said:
“The good projects started by Kwankwawo in education and healthcare… Ganduje completed them. If it were another person he could have left them. This is the project he (Kwankwaso) started. He (Kwankwaso) diverted the balance to go and contest for presidency instead of completing… But he (Ganduje completed the project and it is very responsible of him.”
