Succour is finally coming the way of communities in Kano State, with the total rehabilitation of abandoned and dilapidated boreholes, and the drilling of new real-time community water systems across the 44 local government areas of the state, in order to end the perennial search for water from streams. The project, courtesy of His Excellency Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkareem Zaura, popularly known as A.A. Zaura, is now the most talked about intervention in the commercial hub of Kano and other neighbouring states in the northern part of the country and beyond.
According to some of the community representatives in Kano State, who spoke while witnessing this humanitarian activity, the communities had for decades been trekking long distances to the streams to draw unsafe drinking water. They said, “We had no alternative. We are very happy today that this has changed. This is the first time our community is benefitting from such gesture. We thank God for using our own beloved son, Alhaji A.A. Zaura, to give us close access to potable water. We assure him that we will treasure and protect it. This, of course, is something we count as a real dividend of democracy.”
Most of them never thought a time like this would come. They thought even government might not remember them and give them succour, talk less of a patriot who was never in the corridors of power. They see Mr. Zaura as a potential personality any society can bet for any exalted position.
According to community leaders, youth movement champions and women across the state, Alhaji Zaura is just their answer towards solving their problems. They laud him and cherish him the more.
The state Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who sees this as a gigantic project worth emulation, commends Alhaji Zaura for complementing government’s efforts and charged his executives to emulate the good works of A.A. Zaura.
Mr. Zaura received applause by both community and the pupils for his kind gesture when he visited some of the local government areas to inspect the project his foundation is handling. It is most remarkable that the Kano APC got with the presence of Zaura who stamps his presence with a difference. It is on this note that others feel that it is no longer news for those who follow with passion the Zaura style in Kano State in all aspects of his journey. This, according to analysts, can summarise the reasons why some people run as frantic as a cockroach in a henhouse whenever the Kano APC bigwig lands in his city – Kano. They are seen restless as if with ants in their pants, and at their sixes and sevens.
The teeming youths in the state vow not to rest on their oars until they achieve their desire of enthroning a Zaura candidature.
The strategy he adopts is so calculative that even his opponents know truly well that their ideas will never fly in as much as the master of the game is in the building! This, everyone in Kano today discovered, is one of the All Progressives Congress (APC) movers and shakers, Zaura is the best man for the number one set of Kano State.
