Kano Governor Seeks Extension of LLF Project 

Governor of Kano State, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has called for the extension of the Lives and Livelihoods Fund (LLF) project in the state. 

He made this call during a dinner at the government house with representatives from donor organizations supporting the LLF-funded project, noting that the program was especially important for Kano, which is the most populous state in northern Nigeria.

According to a statement released by the governor’s spokesperson, Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, Kano has greatly benefited from the assistance provided by these organizations. Governor Yusuf noted that expanding the program’s coverage to assist more residents would enhance the long-term economic sustainability of the region.

According to him, this would empower Kano’s growing unemployed youth and marginalized communities, thereby improving their quality of life. He also mentioned some of the achievements of his administration within the first year in office, especially in healthcare, education, agriculture, and the provision of relief measures for the underprivileged.

Addressing the donor organizations, Yusuf said, “On behalf of the government and the esteemed citizens of Kano State, I convey our heartfelt gratitude for supporting this vital initiative that has positively impacted the lives of over one million residents of Kano. Your efforts have helped to increase the daily income of numerous households in Kano over the years, contributing to the socio-economic improvement of the state.

“I want to seize this opportunity to humbly request the extension of the project, with the firm assurance that your contributions are in safe hands, as the Kano State Government is dedicated to the responsible management of every aspect of the project.”

Earlier, Adil Alsharif, the team leader, explained that the goal of their visit was to witness the LLF project firsthand and see how it supports small-scale farmers, pastoralists, and agricultural associations in communities within Kano state.

On behalf of the donor organization, Alsharif expressed satisfaction with the project’s implementation progress and the responsible use of resources.
