The outstretched arm of the creator, Almighty Allah can literary be felt through the love-touch from man to his fellow in service to humanity in a world void of empathy.
Almighty Allah is so perfect in his orchestration as he created women to be our mothers and to you our dearly beloved mother and first lady, Her Excellency Dr. Hafsat Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the wife of our Executive Governor. A mother like no other, kano is blessed to have your reigns.
An academician, a professor who has worked hard to get to where she is today, yet so down-to-earth when it comes to relating with humanity which is her first constituent.
Being a Doctor of philosophy never changes her perception or form an opinion about the way she sees the ‘ordinary people’.
A silent achiever who never gloats over her benevolence for any reason or trying to score political points. A heart of GOLD, I must say!
A helper and a caregiver we’ve found in You.. Like the proverbial ‘mother hen’ who protects her chicks with everything she’s got; you are that and more to us, we the people of kano.
The way she has cared for the widows, the community and less privileged is second to none.. A woman of strong and great personality whose support her family always cherished. She has been a motivation and solid pillar behind her husband, H.E. Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje OFR, the Executive Governor of kano who we believe will ask from Allah a thousand times over for her to be his wife and be mother to his children again. She’s motherly called ‘Gwaggo’ which is interpreted as (grandmother), that’s the depth of her loving-kindness.
A woman of substance, widely read, an intellectual who has put all that into making her environment habitable and conducive for the transformation of mankind. Words are not just enough to celebrate you your Excellency ma, even the ink that flows from the pen of the smoothest orator. May Almighty Allah be your reward, amin!
Dr. Tahir Ahmad Abdallah Alkenanah, Hon. DG kano state Urban Beautification and Landscaping Agency (KASUBA).
