Igbo Community Tasks Kwankwaso On Security


The Kano State chapter of the ‘Ohanaeze Ndigbo’, an ethnic group, has appealed to Gov. Rabi’u Kwankwaso to ensure that their means of livelihood was protected.

In a statement signed by its Chairman, Chief Tobias Idika, in Kano on Monday, the group said: “Although we have been assured of a place in your government, we also seek for absolute protection of our means of livelihood.’’

The group also implored the new governor to provide adequate infrastructure in the areas where its members reside, especially the ‘Sabon Gari’ Commercial District.

“The ‘Sabon Gari’ area, which is a non-indigenes settlement, has been neglected for a long time, with no good roads, water, electricity and sanitary facilities,” the statement noted.

The group congratulated Kwankwaso on his recent victory at the polls, describing it as well deserved .

“The people of Kano State have spoken; they have massively demonstrated that Kano is set for a new dawn and we, the Igbo people living in Kano, believe that your second assumption of office is the beginning of a new era.

“As responsible members and leaders of the ‘Ndigbo’ in Kano, we yearned and worked for this change.

We will make ourselves available for your service at any time, as we continue to mobilise our people for you and your government,’’ the statement added.
