The Kano State Executive Council has given approval for the Kano State Anthem Bill 2023 and its transmission to the State House of Assembly for passage into law.
The KSEC has also approved the State Rural Access Roads Establishment Bill 2022 and the State Roads Funds 2022 Bill.
The State Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Mallam Muhammad Garba, said these on Sunday.
He said, “The Anthem, which has features for which Kano is renowned, that included among other things, inspire and instill deep sense of patriotism, pride and conscious reawakening of virtuous qualities of the founding fathers; passionate objectives of a great sense of macro as well as micro nationalism and pride in the hearts and minds of Kano people.”
According to him, with the passage of the RARA Bill which the council has also given approval for transmission to the State House of Assembly for possible passage and assent by the governor, the agency would undertake construction and rehabilitation of rural roads and water crossing hydraulic structures.
He said the RARA and SRF Bill neither constitute a duplication of already existing road and traffic laws nor were they in conflict with them.
He said if eventually signed into law, the bill would facilitate and improve the socio-economic well-being of the rural populace engaged in agricultural activities.
