The 19 Northern governors have ‎kick-started a fund-raising drive to reinvigorate the Bank of the North which was merged with some financial institutions about a decade ago. ‎

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State disclosed this while addressing members of the State’s Executive Council in Kano.

Mr. Ganduje said that governors of 19 Northern states made the resolution at their meeting in Kaduna.

He said that apart from the revival of the bank, the governors also resolved to revive other economic boosting concerns like the textile industries in the affected states. ‎

According to him, the governors also deliberated extensively on herdsmen- farmers clash and decided to look into issues of incessant face-off between the two. ‎

Mr. Ganduje said the governors also discussed the need for peace, unity and stability in the region.

‎The governor also ‎signed into law the Kano University of Science and Technology amendment law 2017 and North West University amendment law 2017.

He said the laws aimed at closing the gap and variation between the two state-owned universities and harmonising processes for appointing vice chancellors in the two institutions. ‎

    smdh, the same bank the used to siphoned the country’s money back to the North during the good ol-days. I know so much about the bank and its not funny. They catered mainly to the Northerners.

      Are you blind?
      It said: Bank of the NORTH!
      You never heard of WEMA Bank?
      ACB nko? Hausa people called it ‘bankin nyamirai, a bank for the IGBOS.
      I dont subscribe to their idea of ‘reviving’ Bank of the North.
      How can you revive something that does not exist?

      • Julius

        No, I’m not blind and you do not know what I know about the bank. Most military contracts paper-works used to go thru the bank in those days with the bank getting getting HUGE commissions. Trust I, I know !!!

        • Abdullah Musa

          I do.

      Tell your Southern governors to rise to the challenges of the time. They are moving regionally to boast their businesses while your Southern governors are there playing jamboree with the life of their citizens.

      • Julius

        Oga, Southern governors are better than them…anyday.

  • Nnamdi Ugwuadu

    Kudos to the 19 States Northern governors who are now playing the role of the children of Issacca in the Bible. The children of Issacca are known for their understanding of the test of time. While the Northern governors are busy reviving the business in their region because of Economic threat, the Southern governors are busy playing politics with the life of their children. Tomorrow your children will travel to the Northern region in search of employment and they will tell them to join Islam as condition for employment and the Southerners will be jumping up and asking why? Southerners think that they have sense yet they cannot liberate their citizens from hardship. They have started restructuring their region before you guys will take them unaware.
