Kano Gov. Launches Operation Keep Kano Clean Initiative

At Kofar Kwaru, the Emir’s Palace in Kano, the Keep Kano Clean Initiative known as “Operation Nazafah” was launched by the governor of Kano State, Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf.
According to the governor, the state government has added 10 trucks for refuse evacuation and hired 4,500 street sweepers on a casual contract to maintain the cleanliness of all major streets in the metropolis. These workers are employed by the Refuse Management and Sanitation Board (REMASAB).
“Apart from the 10 additional trucks, we also procured two additional pay loaders and repaired many other heavy duty machines/vehicles for the purposes of effective service delivery in refuse management,” he added.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, the governor said 3,000 out of the 4,500 street cleaners were members of the famous community security volunteers also known as “Askarawan Kwankwasiyya” led by Alhaji Saminu Balago Yakasai while the remaining 1, 500 were the ones engaged by previous administration of Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso who were subjected to a screening exercise at the inception of the present administration.
Governor Yusuf further enjoined the beneficiaries of the initiative to render selfless service and dedicate themselves to their assignment to achieve the desired goal of having a city conducive and safe for habitation by all.
According to him, the state government will soon sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the conversion of refuse into fertilizer, which will lead to the creation of new jobs, revenue generation for the government, and a more healthy environment for city residents.
Earlier, Ahmadu Haruna Zago, the Managing Director of the Refuse Management and Sanitation Board (REMASAB), gave the governor the assurance that his agency would regularly conduct strict monitoring of the street sweepers’ operation to ensure that the initiative would be carried out as the current administration had intended.
