Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje yesterday attributed the massive infrastructure development in the state to the increase in internally generated revenue (IGR) and prudent resource management by his administration.
He said this while speaking with journalists at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano, after seeing off visiting Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Ganduje had taken the Vice President round the two-kilometer overhead Bridge and interchanges as well as the Zaria Road and skills acquisition centre under construction for which the contractors gave September to October deadline for completion.
He said: “First of all, issue number one is prudence in order that we block leakages so that whatever we have we make sure that we have it for optimum utilization.
“Secondly, we have increased our internally generated revenue by reforming the system and employing new hands, young people, who are knowledgeable experience.
“So, we have increased our internally generated revenue tremendously.
“And we are operating an open government and we ensure that there is adequate supervision in whatever we are doing.
”That is why we are coming up with quality projects and quality programmes.’’
