Kano State Governor, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf has offered a Permanent and Pensionable appointment to a casual staff of the Kano State Pilgrims Welfare Board, Dayyabu Haladu (aka) Dan Gezawa who returned missing sixteen thousand dollars during the last Hajj operation in Kano.
A statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, made available yesterday, said that in addition to the employment, the governor has also offered a special gift of N1 million and automatic slot for the forthcoming Hajj excercise.
Making the disclosure while receiving the Report of the Kano State Pilgrims Welfare Board for the 2023 Hajj operation, Governor Yusuf expressed his heart-felt appreciation to the casual staff for displaying the act of self contentment.
He said such character displayed by Dayyabu is an excellent character worthy of emulation by all and sundry.
“As a casual staff whose allowance is nothing to talk about, this gentleman managed to return the lost money worth over 15 million. It shows how this person has a fear of Allah and he deserved to be celebrated” the governor stressed.
H.E. Abba Kabir Yusuf then called on the good people of Kano to maintain the hard earned reputation of the state by showcasing the good virtues of trust worthiness, self discipline and contentment so that they can live a happy life.
In his response, the beneficiary, Dayyabu Haladu (Dan Gezawa), revealed that he returned the lost money to the authority of state Pilgrims Welfare Board for the fear of Allah, knowing well that it is not proper to use what does not belong to him, despite his current economic status.
He expressed gratitude to the governor for the gesture extended to him, saying that it is the most joyful moment of his life.
Meanwhile, His Excellency, Abba Kabir Yusuf has promised that the famous tricyclist, Auwalu Salisu who returned the missing N16m will soon be honoured by the state government.
The governor said pointers have been indicating significant improvement in showing the extreme level of trustworthiness by the good people of Kano, which by extension, is projecting the good image of the state.
