You can check Aminu Kano teaching hospital, the physiotherapy unit has a gym and its commercial. I don't know the rate sha.
There is also another female gym along the AKTH road. Sadly i don't know the name or rates but you can pop in and enquire.

Husnaa got it all, a very good small Android App will greatly enhance and increase traffic instead of always opening our slow browsers.

A mobile friendly site will do. An app requires building the app for several platforms (ios, android, windows etc). This is believe will come at a cost. Also, apps need to be downloaded most likely for a fee.
If you have accessed the new site on your mobile you will notice that it is now a mobile friendly site. I have accessed it from windows mobile and Apple and i am impressed. It is much cooler than before and it loads quite fast. Try it.

I believe the front page needs to have a list of the most active or latest posts. There needs to be active moderators that will edit content or be responsible for displaying hot topics for discussion. This would save the user the trouble to go through different sub-boards searching for topics to discuss.

More suggestions coming

Anty Husnaa, the truth is that people need to be free to criticize Buhari. We voted for him because we wanted to live better. If he can not better the lives of people then he should face the blame. He told us he would do it when he was seeking our votes so why will people be silenced or lashed for criticizing Buhari when he can't fulfill his promises. First he said he couldn't do the N5,000 stipend to the poorest of the poor, then he said he cannot build 1million houses annualy like promised during the campaign.He promised to end fuel scarcity but one year later he couldn't. His media aides have started 'misyarning' by saying Nigerians complaining of poor electricity should go and nab gas pipeline vandals, for example.
Personally i feel he should be happy that people are only criticizing him, he should up his sleeves. One year is gone already and we know that generally, people are impatient and people do not like to live in difficult times.
Security in terms of boko haram has greatly improved and we must commend him for that. Kidnapping is on the rise though. As regards the fight against corruption, you can see that the steam has run down. When last did you hear about the Dasuki case? All the Metuh's, the Dokpesi's, the Babakusa's, the Badeh's are freely going about their businesses. Buhari needs to do more kawai.

General Board / Re: Kano through the eyes of Kwankwaso and Shekarau

An interesting interview with Kwankwaso. Though i didn't find him honest for suggesting Jonah Jang at the NSGF meeting, it shows however,that Politics still remains a game of deception.

The two governors who pulled out of the Northern States Governors Forum over alleged betrayal by their colleagues are making the biggest political mistake of their lives and they may not be able to win any election again in the North, Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso has said.
He was referring to his Bauchi and Benue state counterparts, Isa Yuguda and Gabriel Suswam, who had said they would no longer attend meetings of the forum because they were betrayed in the disputed election of the Nigerian Governors Forum chairman.
They had said the northern governors agreed unanimously to support Plateau State Governor Jonah Jang but some of their colleagues voted for Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi, who won the May 24 election.
In an interview with journalists in Abuja yesterday, Kwankwaso said the two governors “are making the biggest political mistakes of their lives.”
“The implication of what they are saying is that they’re not with us (northern governors). What we are saying is (the Nigeria Governors Forum) has nothing to do with the politics of Northern Governors Forum, where we have many assets and liabilities. Whether military or civilian, governors always attend the meetings because you have to go and present the issues concerning your people there.
“Now, if you opt out of Northern Governors Forum, when governors of Western states are meeting, certainly you cannot be part of them. And I begin to wonder where else they will be.  I want to tell you that if they continue with that I don’t see how either they or their candidates would win elections in the North. I think they better start fielding their candidates in elections outside the northern region.
“They don’t know they are making the biggest mistakes. What did the North do to them? Who told them that the North is not supporting Amaechi? If you’re taking a decision, don’t take it when you’re angry. Don’t say because you want to impress someone, so that you could be considered a good governor, you’re getting out of your home, you’re abandoning your people, you’re insulting them...That is a big mistake. I cannot make the mistake of taking Kano out of the North. Those who are making those statements are making mistake. The earlier they reverse themselves, the better for them,” he said.
Emphasising the relevance of the Northern Governors Forum, Kwankwaso said at the Nigerian Governors Forum, all that the governors do is peer review but at northern governors forum issues are tackled at a deeper level.
“People have so much sentiment attached to the Northern Governors Forum, and by the time you remove yourself, people may decide to keep quiet and pay you back at the appropriate time,” he said.
On the issue of betrayal raised by the two governors, Kwankwaso explained that even before the elections he had warned both Katsina State Governor Ibrahim Shema and Yuguda that he would not support them.
“I told Shema, ‘you are my neighbour, you’re my brother, you’re my friend, but you can’t come and tell me you’re contesting an election and you’re parading yourself as a candidate and behaving like somebody who was sent to us.’
“I made it clear that I would neither vote for him nor ask anybody to vote for him. And that I would make sure he lost the election. I told him this to his face. While I was telling him this, Sule Lamido was there, supporting me, Adamawa and Niger State governors were also there. This made some persons to say Shema did not have the support of the North.
“Isa Yuguda came to me, and I told him, I’m still a villager, and I behave in many ways as a villager. In my village, in Kwankwaso in Kano, if a councillorship candidate goes to the elders and says he wanted to contest for councillorship in the morning and they accepted, if someone else comes in the afternoon and asked for the same support, the villagers would tell him he’s late. We don’t want Shema because we wanted to choose our own chairman. Now, you’re coming through the same route. When he insisted, because it was my house, I didn’t want to be as hard on him as I was to Shema.”
Explaining how Jang became the consensus candidate of the North, Kwankwaso admitted that he nominated Jang for that position, though he supported Amaechi’s candidature, because the “G-16” camp were desperate to field a candidate against Amaechi.
“I gave them Jang and I asked the governor of Benue State to support me. I realised they were very desperate, and that even after the election they would not accept the victory of Amaechi. We gave them who we feel should lead the minority group. When we left the place, they had their meeting and accepted him. At the end of the day they brought him to the general meeting of the Governors Forum. At that meeting we told them we wanted Amaechi to continue to be chairman of the forum. We went into voting because there was no consensus,” he said.
On the issue of the zoning of the forum’s chairmanship to the North, Kwankwaso said, “Let me say this: we’re northerners and I think we need to be consulted on what we need in the North. Some people have decided that we should take chairman, Nigerian Governors’ Forum. But that is not our choice. We have our choice to our chest. We know what we need in the politics of this country. Even if (the chairman of Governors Forum) is what we want, we’re not expecting anybody to choose for us. We should choose for ourselves.”
Kwankwaso warned that the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were making a mistake by suspending governors from the party because it is to the detriment of the ruling party. 
“Those who are leading the party should be careful about what they do, especially when they are using dirty words like suspension, expulsion, dismissal, and impeachment. These are words that people should be cautious about,” he said.
“We want peace, stability, development in this country. People should be cautious...With all these things that are happening, people should not worry too much. In developed countries, the US, Britain, Germany, there are two parties. In Nigeria we have one party now and other small parties. Who knows, we’re in a transition in this country, a transition to two parties. Before we have two parties, some people need to make mistakes.”
Asked if he was in talks with the yet to be registered All Progressives Congress (APC), Kwankwaso said he had been in politics for over 20 years now and that had friends across parties, and therefore free to interact with them.
According to him the situation in the PDP had made it difficult for aggrieved members to voice out their grievances because there is no channel to do so. He referred to the fact that the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party has not held for nearly a year now.
“This party belongs to all of us. It doesn’t belong to chairman or to anybody. It belongs to all of us. We have invested so much in this party. But if you’re suspended or dismissed or expelled, it’s unfortunate,” he said.
“All of us who voted for Amaechi consider this suspension as the suspension of all of us in his camp. After Amaechi, they went to the Governor of Sokoto. We’re even surprised that it started from there. Some of us are disappointed that it started from there.”

Mr Lecturer, a dage a rinka Karatu  :P kar yara su rinka kure mr lecturer.

I am currently reading Nasir El Rufa'i's 'The accidental Public Servant'....So far so good.

The last book i read was Power, Politics and Death by Olusegun Adeniyi. Segun is a good writer,he got me glued to the book.
I think i have a flair for modern history book.
Next in line after The accidental public servant is Karl Maiers "this house has fallen"

Well to me, it all depends on our perception of human capital development.
For Example, providing scholarships can be taken as human capital development. While Shekarau's foreign scholarships were shrouded in secrecy, Kwankwaso's was open.
Shekarau no doubt employed a lot of people through the hisbah board and REMASAB (street cleaners). But likewise, Kwankwaso has employed teachers and workers, in Addition to the people he married off.

So Like Muhsin said, all of them care for Kano. But in my own opinion, Shekarau should have done better given the 8yrs he got. I also always ask if his adaidaita sahu program succeeded not.

It takes 35 hrs to go from Lagos to Kano using the new rail service. 700miles (1,125km)
As is common in Nigeria, power outages do occur on the trains. Yes they do!
The ticket costs N2,600 but reads N64 on the ticket,meaning the tickets used were printed many years ago.

Husnaa, you are welcome.
BKGZ you too.

I don't think there are any Jonathanians in Nigeria except Reno Omokri and Doyin Okupe.

BKGZ, just like Husnaa said, i believe Kwankwaso is the right person to lead Kano. In his few years he has been able to achieve so much infrastructural and human capital development.

I also believe he has a passion for the development of the state deep in his mind.

I wish he would have a second term.


The resumption of the Lagos to Kano train service
The stopping of the sunday sunday bombings
