The Kano State government on Thursday announced the reopening of 26 entrepreneurship institutes closed by the administration of former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

The Commissioner for Works and Housing, Marwan Ahmad, disclosed this at a news conference in Kano.

“Governor Abba Kabir-Yusuf has direct that all the 26 Entrepreneurship Institutes established by Sen. Kwankwaso’s Administration which were abandoned by the previous administration, are hereby reopened,” Mr Ahmad said.

He said Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso’s administration established the institutes to equip youths and women with different skills.

“The institute includes Journalism, Horticulture, Poultry, Driving, Reformatory, Hospitality and Tourism, Animal Husbandry, Sports, Informatics, and Corporate Security, among others,” he said.

According to him, the institutes will be optimally used to address drug addictions and thuggery, posing serious concern to state residents.

He said the governor had also ordered contractors handling 5-kilometre road projects initiated by Mr Kwankwaso’s administration across the 44 local government areas of the state to resume work at the sites.

Mr Ahmad further said the state government had equally resumed work at the abandoned Jakara River Project in the Kano metropolis.

The commissioner restated the state government’s commitment to providing infrastructure to improve people’s lives.

“The provision of infrastructure would stimulate the state’s socio-economic activities and revenue base as well as the overall development of communities”.
