Northern States Governors have been called upon to give maximum support to education sector especially at present when the region is gradually developing as seen in every sector.
The call was made by the association of Northern Redemption and Youth Development (NRYD) at the end of the association’s quarterly meeting in Kano, adding that the late Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Sardauna of Sokoto established many important organisations that the region benefitted from but many of them are closed due to lack of full support.
The chairman of the association, Malam Ahmed Mai Sudan announced that NRYD is a non-governmental association that is working selflessly towards the progress of the Northern region and to remind the 19 Northern governors to restore all Sardauna Legacies in order to make the region more progressive.
Malam Ahmed Mai Sudan commended the Northern governors for bringing out more strategies that are vital to the transformation of their states especially in the area of education, security, healthcare and agriculture.
In conclusion, the association thanked Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State for appointing a Northerner and indigene of Kano as adviser on community relations which is a testimony that Nigeria is one and united country, and called on other governors to emulate this kind gesture for a better Nigeria.
