Kaduna State Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Uba Sani

The gubernatorial candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State, Sen. Uba Sani, says the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has revamped education and improved healthcare delivery system in the last seven years.

Sani made this known at APC Zone 1 Town Hall meeting in Kaduna on Sunday.

The gubernatorial candidate noted that Kaduna State was ranked 26th in the education rating of country in 2015 but it is now the fourth in the country and number one in the North during the regime of Governor El-Rufai.

He stated that healthcare has been brought closer to the people, with the construction of one Primary Healthcare Centre in all the 255 wards in the state.

“Kaduna State has never witnessed the monumental infrastructural upgrade that has been recorded under the Urban Renewal Program,” Sani added.

According to him, the huge infrastructural upgrade in terms of good road network, access roads, bridges, and under passes, encouraged foreign companies to set shop in Kaduna State.

The senator stated that the introduction of laudable policies and programs enhanced the Ease of Doing Business in Kaduna State, adding that the World Bank rated it number one in its 2018 report.

“Because of the conducive business environment in Kaduna state, it has attracted the highest number of Foreign Direct Investment in the country,” he noted.

Sani, however, promised to focus on the 18 local governments in the provision of infrastructure if elected as governor in 2023.

He further stated that the loan that the state government collected has been used judiciously, adding that every kobo was used for the intended purpose.

The lawmaker equally promised to continue with the legacies of El-Rufai’s administration and extend development to all nooks and crannies of Kaduna State.

The APC governorship candidate also promised to restore public schools to their former pride of place by recruiting competent teachers and providing conducive learning environment.

“Women and youth empowerment will form the bedrock of my administration with your support and votes. I will continue from where our hard working and dynamic governor stopped, inshaa Allah,” Sani pledged.

The town hall meeting was attended by the Deputy Governor of Kaduna State, Dr Hadiza Balarabe; the senator representing Northern zone, Sen. Suleiman Abdu Kwari; and Secretary to Kaduna State Government, Balarabe Abbas Lawal, among others.
