The Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC, expressed confidence on Sunday in the “qualitative leadership” of Governor Abba Yusuf’s administration in providing democratic dividends to the residents of the state.
The national chairman of the council, Ralph Nwosu, made the commendation after an assessment visit to Kano on the democratic dividends provided by the governor.
“We will compile reports to be tabled before President Tinubu and the National Assembly.
“We are also presenting this peer review to the Senate president, the speaker of the House of Representatives, and the INEC for final assent and acceptance.”
He explained that IPAC only wanted to be sure that the quality of democratic governance was upgraded, the reason they embarked on state visitations.
Mr Nwosu said that among the things they want to observe in every state is to see continuity in a place where a new government takes over so that the meaning of governance will be fully entrenched.
“IPAC members, about 30 of them from different states of the federation, are here to see what is going on in each of the states they are visiting.
“We are working in tandem with the virtues of democratic principles to see that the quality of governance is being adequately taken care of, and we cannot have that without going down to see for ourselves.
“We discovered that what the Kano State Government is doing is in complete alignment with the principles of IPAC, and we understood in our discussion with some of the government officials that they carried out their jobs without necessarily borrowing.”
Mr Nwosu said Kano was very fortunate with the government that was able to achieve so much in just five months of the administration; “the 10-point agenda, the sky is the limit, and more support will come their way from the people,” he said.
The chairman lauded the political commitment demonstrated by the present administration in providing learning materials for all public schools in the state.
According to priority attention to education, sponsoring more than 1,000 postgraduate students in India and Uganda is one of the best things that has happened to the educational sector.
The provision of potable water in and outside the metropolis, as well as providing farming implements at controlled prices, will pave the way for the production of assorted food crops.
They said members were able to visit 11 projects while they spoke to some community leaders about whether the projects met their needs.
