The statement cited the director-general of the forum, Salihu Mohammed Lukman as saying Ganduje, having scored 19 points emerged top at the monthly rating of the forum.
“There is an all-round increase in the pattern of initiatives introduced by the states with Kano state recording highest of the initiatives with nineteen (19) strides.
“Furthermore, the action which aims at tracking the activities of the states under the leadership of the APC spreads across empowerment, job creation, healthcare, education, security, transportation, power, environment, sports etc,” he said.
