Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, on Wednesday, called on women to vote for credible candidates, especially President Muhammadu Buhari and himself, in 2019.
Ganduje made the disclosure on Tuesday at the Government House while giving out N30, 000.00 each to about 6, 600 women drawn from the 44 local governments areas of the state.
Ganduje said the money was to enable them to improve on their small-scale businesses
He said, “We have decided to empower you in order to make you stand on your feet business wise; we expect you to make judicious use of the funds given to you, so as to assist yourselves and members of your families.”
The governor noted that the exercise would be a continuous one, adding that many women would be empowered this year with money and other logistics to execute their business as part of the promise made by the All Progressives Congress during its electioneering in the state.
