Kwankwaso launches Tree Planting Campaign in Tukwi
 
Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso of Kano state has launched this year’s tree planting campaign at Kano state poultry Institute, Tukui, Makoda local government area and presided over the graduation of the 200 women who were given three-month intensive poultry farming training at the same venue.
Speaking on the joint occasion, Governor Kwankwaso said that said three million seedlings are to be distributed to people as well as the schools, government ministries and parastatals in the state as part of efforts to fight desertification.
He stated that his government decided to reintroduce the tree planting exercise to create awareness on environmental issues and to spearhead efforts aimed at protecting the ecosystem.
“We can’t allow things to continue to degenerate anyhow. Continued deforestation is threatening our farm lands as well as human and animal existence. Everybody is at risk so we must join hands to stop desert encroachment and its attendant effects”.
He therefore cautioned people against indiscriminate felling of trees and other physical activities that are not friendly to the environment, urging people in the state to embrace the culture of tree planting for their own good.
The governor directed the state Commissioner for Environment to start the distribution of the free seedlings provided by government on time in order to take the advantage of the current rainy season.
On the training of women in poultry rearing, he stated that it is the third phase of its kind aimed at empowering Kano state women, where over N9 million has been spent.
Governor Kwankwaso said during the training, beneficiaries were taught various poultry techniques in addition to the Islamic and civic education courses to give them a broader view of life.
He said each woman would go home with complete poultry facilities ranging from feeding equipments, medications and donation of the chickens for them to start with. He therefore called on them not to sell the poultry and spend the money frivolously, as this would defeat the purpose of the empowerment training.
“We will mobilize vetinary doctors to go round each of the local governments and supervise the exercise to avoid any unwholesome acts, at the same time provide beneficiaries with advice for the success of the programme”, Governor Kwankwaso explained.
Meanwhile, Governor Rabi’u Kwankwaso paid an inspection visit to the site of the on-going construction of Bandarawo city and assured that all the three cities being built by his administration would be completed before the end of his tenure.

Family and associates of the recently assassinated Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), Mr. Sale Abubakar Ningi, were Tuesday taken aback when one Salihu Goni,  during interrogation by a team of detectives from the Kano State Police Command, allegedly owned up as the mastermind of the plot that led his death along with two others in Kano three weeks ago.

Goni, also known as Kaka, was said to have told a team of police detectives during interrogation that he shared close relationship with the late former police boss, stressing that the closeness put him at vantage to hatch and successfully execute the plot.

Explaining how he hatched the heinous act, the suspect, who was picked up by the police at Hotoro Haye in Kano metropolis, confessed that he monitored the Ningi’s movement and alerted one Gana Bukar, also in police custody, to lay ambush with one other person now at large.

Addressing journalists on the development, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, said further investigation had led to the arrest of other suspects in connection with the murder of the late senior police officer.

He disclosed that one Muhammed Tahir, 22, was arrested at Dandishe Kurna Asabe quarters, adding that three cans of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were recovered from his shop.

Niger republic is to tap gas from its crude reserve in Zinder province, part of which will be transmitted to Nigeria, because of its importance as a strategic neighbor.

Also, the country is to construct a coal power plant in Taoua, a move which will reduce its power dependence on Nigeria, which currently supplies 60-70 percent of the Nigerien energy need.

The country’s Minister of Energy and Oil, Foumakoye Gado announced this when he received Kano state governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso who visited him in Niamey, the capital of Niger republic.

He told Governor Kwankwaso that the country’s only refinery currently produces 16,000 BPD of crude oil while its daily need is 6,000-8,000 BPD, explaining that Niger intends to sell its excess crude to Nigeria and Burkina Faso, the proceeds of which would be utilized to improve social services.

Further, Mr. Gado said his country plans to lay oil pipelines from Niger-Chad-Cameroon, pointing out that this is a critical project in which the private sector from Nigeria can invest.

“Only last week, a Former Nigerian Minister Adamu Aliero was allotted an oil block in Niger republic for prospecting so the oil sector is a good area for Nigerian investors to come in,” said the Minister, adding that Kano state and Niger republic could also collaborate at the levels of government and the private sector in energy development.

Responding, Governor Kwankwaso expressed satisfaction with the level of commitment with which Niger republic is revamping its energy sector, noting that businessmen from Nigeria, especially Kano state should invest in the Nigerien energy sector for mutual benefit.

Meanwhile, Governor Kwankwaso has stressed the need for Nigeria and Niger republic to partner in the area of livestock development and enlightenment of cattle rearers on modern animal breeding.

The governor who made the call while exchanging views with the Nigerien Minister of Livestock Development, Mahaman Elhadji Ousmane in his office, said primitive breeding techniques, climate change and nomadism have adversely affected livestock development particularly in the two sister countries.

The governor disclosed that part of measures taken by his government to improve livestock development included the establishment of a livestock institute and five other agriculture based institutes, adding that machinery has already been set in motion for the training of 5,000 youths and the same number of women on cattle husbandry.

Kano State Government has concluded arrangements to award a contract for the construction of two fly-overs in the Kano metropolis.

The Public Relations Officer of the state Ministry of Works, Malam Bashir Habib, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Kano.

He said that the contractors had already presented tenders to the ministry.

Habib said that the Commissioner for Works and Housing, Alhaji Abba Kabir, had said that the contract award would follow due process.

He noted that the aim was to fulfil the state government’s pledge to decongest the metropolis as soon as possible.

According to him, the two fly-overs will take-off from Zaria Road to Ibrahim Taiwo Road while the other one will extend to IBB Way.

Salam, GGNK

Regarding that recruitment issue, what exactly do you refer to as 1002 "graduates" that have been employed by the government? Graduates as applied to those that have degrees or other qualifications? Thanks

Kano state to train 100 pilots abroad
 
100 indigenes of Kano state are to be sponsored by the state government for training as pilots and other aviation professionals, the state governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso has announced.

Giving the indication while receiving the General Manager, Mideast Aviation Academy, Jordan, Abdallah Twerish at the government house in Kano, Governor Kwankwaso stated that it is the vision of the government to ensure that Kano citizens dominate the aviation industry in Nigeria in the near future.

He said following initial discussions with the managements of International Aviation College in Kwara state and that of the Nigerian College of Aviation, Zaria, it was realized that the two institutions cannot provide slots of all the proposed 100 indigenes of Kano state.

For this reason, Governor Kwankwaso said the Jordanian aviation institute was invited for discussion on how the government can collaborate with the institute on training of prospective pilots and aviation professionals from the state.

“Apart from this, we have commenced preliminary dialogue with Gulf Medical University, Dubai, UEA for possible establishment of a medical institution in Kano. These are part of efforts we are making to make sure that our citizens make use of all the opportunities they deserve”, the governor maintained.

He said the government has made significant progress on a similar program whereby 500 Kano graduates with first class and second class upper degrees will be sponsored for postgraduate studies overseas, highlighting that the recruitment of 1003 personnel into the state civil service would also commence before long.

Therefore, governor Kwankwaso appealed to people in the state to encourage their young ones to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the government, work hard and earn decent living so that Kano would attain its rightful position in the scheme of things in the country.

Earlier in his remarks, the General Manager, Mideast Aviation Academy, Jordan, Abdallah Twerish said the institute will be happy to collaborate with the state government in training its students, explaining that the academy is internationally approved and recognized by professional aviation bodies.

Mr. Twerish noted that at present, some of his academy’s students are from Kano and are among the best students, assuring that qualified indigenes of the state and other international students would not be denied admission into the academy.

It's ofcourse a good thing to do, and the gov't have done it. Kudos. However, for your information, the card was, yes, sold for N200; but most of the employed people have qualification below degree. For e.g. of the 70 or thereabout English teachers recruited, only 5 have degree. Our friends have applied, and none got it.

Subhanallah,this is bad news. But does a person need to have a degree to qualify as an enclish teacher? I thought a National Certificate of Education (NCE) is sufficient for one to be a teacher?
