Mr Ganduje also approved subsidiary tuition fee for indigenes in all state-owned tertiary institutions.
He stated this in his speech shortly after he took the oath of office, on Wednesday.
“Today, our government declares basic and post-basic education free,” he said at the ceremony.
“We also mandate tuition at public tertiary institutions to be highly subsidised. Education for physically challenged persons from basic to tertiary level shall remain free.”
The governor also announced the approval of N2.4billion for the construction of a cancer treatment centre in Kano. He said the cancer centre will ease the challenge cancer patients face in Northern Nigeria.
Mr Ganduje said his administration has secured $500 million from the Islamic Development Bank to reinvigorate agriculture, especially to execute irrigation projects.
He extended the olive branch to the opposition party and pledged to run an inclusive government to move Kano to the next level.
“Elections are over. It is now time to move Kano forward. Our government will be all-inclusive and we shall not leave anyone behind no matter party inclinations.”
He said he has “a clear vision” of the legacy he wants to live at the end of his second term, “especially in the area of education, health, agric, and infrastructure.”Do you find Naijachoice useful? Click here to give us five stars rating!
