Abdullahi Ganduje, the governor of Kano State, has been awarded the best governor to have performed brilliantly in the first 100 days in office.
The award was conferred by African Group of Democrats under the aegis of African Democracy Assessment Network (ADAN) based in Dakar, Senegal.
This was disclosed in a statement by Abba Anwar, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor.
The statement said: “Barely 24 hours after the traditional 100 days in office for governors who were inaugurated on May 29, an African group of democrats under the auspices of African Democracy Assessment Network (ADAN), has selected Kano State governor, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, for an award.
“After assessing what was achieved by all the governors in the last 100 days of their stewardship, Kano state governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has been selected by the Group to be awarded 'Best Governor In 100 Days'."
The statement quoted the group as saying, “We carefully selected these areas, education, health, agriculture, security, economy, infrastructural development and politics, with concentration on supremacy of political party or parties as the case may be.”
