Ganduje tasks Kano students on responsible behaviour




By Abbas Bamalli

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State urged Kano students in different institutions across the country and abroad to always behave responsibly as potential leaders and citizens.

The governor gave the charge at the official inauguration of the new leaders of the national body of the National Association of Kano State Students (NAKSS) on Saturday in Kano.

According to Ganduje, the newly elected leaders should also conduct themselves responsibly in order to have the administration’s continued support.

“From our side, we will continue to support you so that you start your studies and finally get your diploma successfully. You already know our policy of free and compulsory primary and secondary education.

“We therefore urge you to cooperate with the government so that we are successful in all of our important policies. We say education is free because we don’t want some people to be marginalized due to the economic situation.

“We want all of our children to have access to an education, whether you are rich or poor, that does not prevent you from sending your children to school. It is very, very important to us as elected leaders.

“And we say it’s compulsory because some parents may decide not to send their children to school. It’s not fair to the kids and I’m sure when the kids get older they won’t forgive their parents, ”he said.

Ganduje also praised Kano students from various higher education institutions for their good conduct.

“Students who behave very well and see their education as very important, after graduation they end up becoming responsible and responsible leaders,” he said.

Earlier in his welcoming speech, State Commissioner for Youth Development and Sport Kabiru Lakwaya said elections were held in 2020 but the inauguration was suspended due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

According to Lakwaya, the 2020/2021 election was the best of its kind because it was free, fair and acceptable to all stakeholders.

NAKSS National President Mr. Yahaya Usman-Kabo, a student at Kano State School of Technology, pledged to do everything possible for the advancement of students.

He said he would coach all members of the association to complement the support given to them by all stakeholders.

“We must congratulate the governor for settling the unpaid registration and tuition fees of some of our members who study inside and outside the country,” he said. (NOPE)
