The president said his administration would continue to accord priority attention to education so as to empower the youth, to enable them contribute their quota toward the development of the country.

According to him, “If you educate people, you empower them. So we have to make sacrifice to prepare the youth for the future.''

He expressed happiness for the reception accorded to him and his entourage by the people of the state on their arrival in the state capital.

According to him, ''I am overwhelmed by the massive turnout of people who left what they were doing to welcome me. This should be a clear message to the opposition.

''The support has been consistent, so I don’t have words to express my appreciation to the people of Kano state.”

The president congratulated Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for working very hard to improve the living standard of the people of the state through execution of projects that had direct bearing on them.

He described Ganduje as a good politician who worked closely with all politicians, particularly representatives of the state, at the state and National Assemblies.
