Ganduje said his second term will record complete overhaul of the state water board with the establishment of a new company known as Kano State Small Town Water Supply Agency to carter for the water needs of communities in the rural areas.
The Governor, who was obviously elated for support he enjoyed from the people, also promised to boost agriculture in the state, with major concern on raising the stakes of small scale farmers.
Ganduje reiterated his administration’s policy of zero tolerance to corruption, adding his second term will ensure re-invigoration of the state anti-corruption agency for better performance.
