Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has described Kano as the most peaceful in Nigeria, saying that his administration’s adoption of new security measures necessitates the relative peace enjoyed in the state.
Mr Ganduje during the traditional Hawan Nasarawa at the Government House on Wednesday in Kano, said his administration had identified the issue of security as paramount, hence the need to adopt the measures.
“We identified the issue of security as paramount to socio-economic development. Technology, community policing and full coordination among the security agencies made Kano the most peaceful state in the federation,” he said.
The Governor maintained that his government also adopted a strategy to further improve the markets by creating an enabling environment for businesses to thrive.
Also speaking during the ceremony, the Emir of Kano, Aminu Bayero, urged eligible voters to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in preparation for the 2023 general elections.
“Voting is your right, and everyone must ensure that he gets his voter’s card as this is the only way you can vote.
“With your voter’s card, you would be able to vote for the party of your choice,” he said.
The Hawan Nasarawa is the emir’s payment of traditional homage to the state governor after the Eid-el Fitr celebration.
