Gover­nors to re­vive Bank of the North – Gan­duje

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

The 19 North­ern states gover­nors have kick-started a fund rais­ing drive to rein­vig­o­rate the Bank of the North which was merged with some fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions about a decade ago.

Gov. Ab­dul­lahi Gan­duje of Kano State dis­closed this while ad­dress­ing mem­bers of the State’s Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil in Kano.

Gan­duje said gover­nors of the 19 North­ern states made the res­o­lu­tion at their meet­ing in Kaduna.

He said that apart from the re­vival of the bank, the gover­nors also re­solved to re­vive other eco­nomic boost­ing con­cerns like the tex­tile in­dustries in the af­fected states.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the gover­nors also de­lib­er­ated ex­ten­sively on herds­men­farm­ers clashes and de­cided to look into the in­ces­sant face-offs.

Gan­duje said the gover­nors also dis­cussed the need for peace, unity and sta­bil­ity in the re­gion.

The gov­er­nor also signed into law the Kano Univer­sity of Science and Tech­nol­ogy amend­ment law 2017 and North West Univer­sity amend­ment law 2017.

He said the laws aimed at clos­ing the gap and vari­a­tion be­tween the two state-owned univer­si­ties and har­mon­is­ing pro­cesses for ap­point­ing vice chan­cel­lors in the two in­sti­tu­tions.(NAN)
