Kano State deputy governor and the governor-elect, Engr. Abdullahi Umaru Ganduje has lamented that lack of continuity in government policies in most of states in the federation had brought setbacks in administration and failure by successive governments to continue with programmes considered important to the populace.
Engr. Ganduje made the observation in an interview with journalists in Yola, Adamawa State capital, at the weekend, stressing that in governance it’s always good for the electorate to allow continuation so that those in the corridors of power could complete ongoing projects that have direct bearing on the populace as the case with Kano State.
He explained that with the mandate given to him by his people, he would surely do all it takes to provide dividends of democracy to his people, urging them to be patient, supportive to his administration.
“Kwankwaso’s vision for the state is intact. My administration will continue from where my boss will stop on 29th May.”
On how to improve his state’s internally generated revenue for more fund, Ganduje said most, if not all, fraudulent leakages and corrupt tendencies would be checkmated with all seriousness by his administration.
“Most of these fraudulent leakages and possibilities of corrupt utterances in the revenue generation section and other government departments will be checkmated accordingly; because with that I am optimistic that we will be able to see light at the end of the tunnel, God willing,” he emphasised.
Ganduje, who spoke tough on corrupt officials, advised president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to probe corrupt cases in all sectors of government with a view to sanitise the system entirely.
Answering a question on his speculated ambition of becoming the next chairman of Nigerian Governors Forum, Ganduje said he was a new comer in the fold and needed to gather more experience as substantive governor before delving into such venture, saying “among us there are old governors who are better off than we JJCs but you know our people can speculate issues, so that is my stand on that.”
