The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano state, Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, has pledged to improve the state’s education sector, if elected.

Gawuna, who is also the deputy governor of the state, made the pledge on Saturday during a debate organized for five governorship candidates in the state by the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) at the Aliko Dangote Business School, Bayero University, Kano (BUK).

He promised to build on the successes recorded in the sector by two previous administrations in the state – Shekarau and Kwankwaso administrations as well as the present Ganduje administration, if given the mandate.

The APC flagbearer said such gains included provision of infrastructure like new classrooms and furniture as well as free and compulsory basic and secondary education as being guaranteed by the Ganduje administration.

According to him, the Ganduje administration had surpassed the two preceding governments in terms of education infrastructure, especially building of new classrooms.

“The free and compulsory education of the Ganduje administration has stimulated an increase in the state’s school enrollment figure to more than 3.7 million presently,” he noted.

Out of this estimate, Dr. Gawuna said 60 percent were girls, describing it as gladdening and unprecedented.

On healthcare, the APC candidate said under the Ganduje government, Kano state occupies the number one position in primary healthcare in Northern Nigeria, and the state is also number one in maternal and healthcare, according to the WHO rating.

He promised again to consolidate on these achievements recorded by the Ganduje administration, if elected as the next governor of Kano state.
