All these landmark were achieved within one year in Office.

Governor Yusuf urged participants at the conference to actively engage in dialogues, openly share their expertise and viewpoints to ensure that the state can harness the outcome of the conference to envision a future wherein no child in Kano is marginalized nor left behind.
