Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf

The Kano State Government has approved N3.57 billion to sponsor an overseas scholarship program for 550 graduates from the state’s 44 local government areas.

The decision was taken at a recent Executive Council meeting, where numerous major measures were approved.

“The Kano State Government is committed to nurturing and supporting our exceptional talent,” the state’s Information Commissioner Baba Halilu said in a press conference after the Friday meeting.

“By sponsoring 550 first-class graduates, we are investing in the future leaders of our state.”

The scholarship program will provide these graduates with possibilities for additional education overseas, allowing them to further develop their skills and expertise. This decision is expected to have a significant impact on the development of human capital in the state.

Aside from the international scholarship program, the Council approved N63 million for the purchase of HIV test kits, demonstrating the government’s commitment to public health programs. The monies are likely to aid to attempts to fight the virus’s spread within the state.

Furthermore, the Council approved a N15 million budget for community mosquito spraying throughout Kano State. This technique aims to reduce the health hazards connected with mosquito-borne diseases while also ensuring inhabitants’ safety.

These projects, according to stakeholders, demonstrate the Kano State Government’s dedication to educational advancement, public health, and community welfare.
