Katsina Governor-elect Sets To Hit The Ground Running

With presentation of Certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Katsina Governor-elect, Dr. Dikko Umar Radda, is set to hit the ground running in the affairs of the State.

A statement issued by a member, Inauguration Committee of the Governor- elect, Adamu S. Ladan says, the Governor-elect, on Wednesday,  inaugurated eleven committees to retune his blueprint for the state.

Dr. Radda aims at promoting preventive healthcare as one of the cardinal principles of his administration charging the committee on health to emphasise on a strategy for a healthcare system which will be driven by quality medical services that are affordable and accessible to the people.

Another area that will receive his attention according to the statement, is land reform that will make the sector be in tune with best global practices.

“Katsina City, which had transformed from a provisional Headquarters about three and half decades ago will also receive a boost with a production of master plan befitting of its prevailing status,” the Governor-elect assured the people.

Dr. Radda, however said, all “these laudable goals cannot be achieved without funding from an improved internally generated revenue (IGR).”

It’s on this premise he said a committee on the IGR is expected to come up with strategies for the development  and support of revenue generation that is driven by increase in investment in technology and infrastructure for generations.

Also at his heart is the issue of security which he said without it, there would be no meaningful development.

It’s in this regard, he said, his administration has as its top priority the development  and support of climate of peace, security and stability in the state.

“My administration will establish a Social Care Sector under my office as part of the strategies of ensuring permanent security in the state,” he added.

In furtherance to the realisation of peace and development, the Governor-elect also said he would want to see the role of traditional institutions streamlined as Heads of unit within the framework of developmental efforts of the state.
