In a statement by the Press Secretary to the Deputy Governor, Ibrahim Garba Shuaibu, the government expressed its dedication to putting in place all necessary measures for mutual understanding.
Gwarzo, reflecting on his history as a labour union activist, stated that he takes pride in his past contributions to the labour movement in Kano State.
“I am proud to be a labour activist, and I am equally proud of what I did during my days in the union. I went into labour decisively because there’s a need to revamp the union for the betterment of society,” declared the Deputy Governor.
