During the inauguration event of the newly built 3,000-capacity, ultra-modern custodial center in the Janguza area of Kano State, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje expressed that President Muhammadu Buhari has significantly improved Nigeria since assuming leadership in 2015.
The Governor, represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji, stated that the completion of this project and others are a testament to President Buhari’s commitment to delivering the benefits of democracy to the Nigerian people, fulfilling the promises made.
“It is pleasing to observe that out of the four projects commissioned throughout the country today, three are situated in Kano State.
“Indeed, this is what Muhammadu Buhari promised Nigerians, in particular people of Kano State who had massively and consistently voted for him in the previous elections. These projects would move Kano to a higher level,” Ganduje stated.
The Controller-General of the Nigerian Correctional Service, NCS, Halliru Nababa, praised the newly inaugurated facility as a state-of-the-art Custodial Centre, the first of its kind in Nigeria, and a rare addition to the limited number of similar facilities across the African continent.
“Today’s ceremony will go down well in history as an unparalleled feat and a milestone. This is because the project to be inaugurated by Mr. President is the first of its kind in our country and adds to the rank of just a few of its kind on the African Continent.
“This gigantic facility is another clear manifestation of the golden footprints of the present government in the NCoS. No doubt, the Correctional Service now stands transformed and reenergized to answer its name anywhere, among its equals.
“Suffice it to say that such massive infrastructure upgrade is a quantum leap from a system that hitherto seemed neglected, to a highly revamped and reformed Service, able to actualize its statutory mandate professionally,” the Controller General, Nababa however, stated.
