Ganduje Bags 2018 Best Governor Award, Despite Unresolved Bribery Allegation

Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has bagged the 2018 Best Governor Award in the areas of health and education despite unresolved bribery allegations against him.

He was crowned the best governor by Telegraph newspaper.

Presenting the award to the governor at Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos, a former minister of petroleum, Don Etiebet, acknowledged how Mr Ganduje transformed both the health and education sectors in Kano State, “within a twinkle of an eye”.

“The outstanding performance of governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje made him stand out among his peers. While understanding the relevance of education in the state development, Ganduje believes in a healthy population. That is why he did it diligently to see that he leaves indelible marks in these all-important sectors.”

In his acceptance speech, the governor appreciated the award, saying that “being the most populous state in the country, we don’t want to have a population that will be a liability to us. We want to see that our population become an asset, not a liability. That is why we are doing our best in these and all other areas in this administration.

“We assure you that Kano will continue to excel in all sectors. This honour, as being presented here, is meant to encourage us to continue building a stronger state with viable economy and productive population,” he reportedly said.

Ganduje added that “We are grateful for such recognition, as you are receiving this intimidating entourage on the podium.”
