The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano,  Alhaji Muhammad Sadiq Wali said if elected, his administration will use the Public Private Partnership (PPP)  policy to boost the economy of the state and restore the lost glory of Kano as the commercial nerve center of the North.
Alhaji Muhammad Sadiq Wali stated this during a parley with journalists on Monday in kano.
He said his team was prepared to build the economy. “We believe in Public Private Partnership.  Kano is private sector driven. Most of our Kano citizens are very industries,  and we need to encourage them. All they need is support from the government,”
Alhaji Mohammad Sadiq Wali Cited China as an example,  he lamented that if given the mandate his administration will become economically independent and would promote small-scale businesses and local/indigenous industrialization.
 “This was how countries like China developed their economy.  We will come up with policies that promote local industries, we will discourage those policies that close down our local industries,” he added.
The PDP candidate also promised to encourage direct foreign investment for the betterment of the state’s economic growth.
He said he will use several years of his experience in the private sector to not only provide quality leadership to the people of Kano State but also to grow the economy through the reformed Internally Generated Revenue (IGR)  system.
“any government that has the development of the state at heart prioritizes infrastructural development in areas where commercial and business activities are booming, to make way for economic growth and increase the drive for revenue generation. “
He argued that the infrastructural facilities such as roads continue to be dilapidated because of the increasing population in urban areas, “we need to expand and build infrastructural facilities in local areas where you have competitive opportunities.”
The PDP gubernatorial candidate promised that his administration will ensure rural urbanization to decongest the increasing population in the city and as well,  ensure even development by building required infrastructure and industries in local areas where raw materials and human resources are readily available.
He added that  part of his team’s agenda includes Social Service Reforms (SSR), pointing out that it is about re-orientation,  it is about re-focusing the mindset of the people, “we are coming into government for implementation,  sustainability, and wealth creation.”
Wali served as  Commissioner for Water Resources for two and half years under  Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje’s administration, He resigned his position to actualize his gubernatorial ambition under the PDP.
