Sola Ojo, Kaduna
The Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Uba Sani, visited his alma mater, Government College, Saminaka, over the weekend, where he inspected several borehole projects he awarded to support the college and its host communities.
The intervention was a timely intervention for the school and its host communities located in Lere local government area of Kaduna State which has over the years suffered from a lack of portable water.
The lawmaker, who was at the college for the Annual General Meeting of its Old Students Association, was also honoured with an award for his positive contribution to the development of Kaduna State by the school authorities.
Sani, a former political adviser to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, said he was excited by the opportunity to interact with classmates and elated to have met Malam Muhammadu who worked as the college Chief Cook when he was a student there.
Briefing reporters on the development in one of the project sites, the lawmaker said it was necessary for him to personally inspect the projects in order to ensure they are executed according to specifications.
“Today, I have come to inspect the ongoing work on three of the several boreholes which I awarded with the aim of meeting the growing need for portable water in the school and the host community,” he said.
Before living Saminaka, the Senator paid homage to the Emir of Saminaka, His Highness, Alhaji Musa Muhammadu Sani, whom he described as a good and inspiring peace ambassador.
“I strongly believe that we all can come together and work for the progress of Kaduna State and Nigeria in general if we beam a light on improving the quality of education in public schools,” the Senator said.
“I also appreciate Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai for making education a priority so that children in public schools can have access to qualitaty education and become great ambassadors of our state.”
