“Yesterday, my team and I, continued our nationwide tour with a visit to the ancient City of Kano, where we engaged in a series of impactful activities. Our first stop was to honour an invitation by the Proprietor of Skyline University Kano, a pioneering privately owned institution in the City. This visit underscored the significance of private sector investment in education and goes further to highlight the potential for collaboration among private institutions to enhance access to quality education in the region.

“During our visit, I urged people to reconsider sending their children abroad at very high cost for education and instead consider institutions like Skyline University, Baze University, and others.

“Following our visit to the university, I also had the privilege of paying a courtesy visit to His Royal Highness Alhaji Dr Aminu Ado Bayero, CFR, the Emir of Kano, as a gesture of respect to the revered monarch and the Tumbin Giwa people.

“Continuing our mission of service, I proceeded to commission a borehole in Dandalin, Fagge Local Government Area of Kano State, constructed as our token contribution to the people. In addition to providing vital access to clean water for the community.

“I also extended a small cash assistance to approximately 100 individuals in need, reaffirming our commitment to uplifting the less privileged members of our society.

:Furthermore, we joined the Muslim faithful at the Alansar Juma’at Mosque, Fagge, where we provided food for over 1000 people and shared fellowship in the breaking of the fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

“Our participation in these communal activities highlighted our respect for the religious and cultural traditions of the region as well as our willingness to engage with individuals from diverse backgrounds.

“Overall, our visit to Kano during this Ramadan season was characterized by acts of service, collaboration, and mutual respect. Through our collective efforts, we continue to inspire positive change and foster unity across Nigeria.
