The wife of the governor of Kano state, Professor Hafsat Abdullahi Ganduje has charged children in the state to embrace education in order to build their future.
The First Lady gave the charge at the distribution of food stuff and bicycles to orphans, less privilege, people with special needs and Ulamas.
Speaking at the event, held in Dambatta Local Government secretariat on Wednesday, the wife of the governor said children of today can not have bright future if they do not go for education.
According to her, nobody could be a leader in this country without education.
“You can’t be a governor without education. You can’t be a local government chairman without education. You can’t hold any public office if you’re not educated.
” I therefore implore you my children to go and acquire knowledge. I urge you to go to school and get knowledge so that we shall be proud of you in the future. You’re our future leaders,” she said.
No fewer than 600 people benefitted from the gesture.
The First Lady therefore urged the beneficiaries to utilise the items judiciously, informing them that more goodies are on the way.
She stated that the government of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje is a people-oriented administration, adding that the government would continue to empower women, children and people special needs in the state.
