The support will be for people from urban and rural areas who have been captured in the State Social Register.

The state commissioner of Budget and Planning, Mohammed Sani, stated this in a keynote address, titled; “The Role of Students in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” which he delivered at a summit organised by the Kaduna State Students Union (KADSU), held at the Kaduna State University on Thursday in Kaduna.

Mr Sani said the government has provided the funds in the 2022 Budget for pro-poor interventions that seek to support the vulnerable and ensure social inclusion among urban and rural poor citizens across the state.

“Today’s generation of youths is the largest the world has ever known. Young people are changing the landscape with high demand for skilled opportunities. As young people, we can define the trajectory of development.

“Young people form 80 per cent of the population in Kaduna State and, therefore, are critical in determining the future of the state and represents hope for the attainment of the SDGs.

“I also urge you the students and young people to become the voice of social transformation and active citizens, while leveraging on creative ideas and technologies and interconnectedness in addition to conducting innovative research that fast-tracks the attainment of the 17 SDGs.

The Nasir El-Rufai administration has appointed young people in many key positions since he assumes office in 2015.

Among them is Mr Dattijo, who was one-time the chief of staff to the governor before being redeployed to the Ministry of Budget and Planning. Also are the commissioner for internal security, Samuel Aruwan, Hafiz Bayero, and many others.

Many Abuja hotels have also been fully booked on Saturday, including smaller hotels on the outskirts. THISDAY checks showed that some presidential hopefuls paid for fuel in most petrol stations.

A source told THISDAY that one top politician paid for fuel in eight filling stations for the benefit of his delegates.

“You are seeing long queues everywhere because the politicians involved have purchased fuel in most of the petrol stations,” stated the source. “One popular politician paid for petroleum products in eight filling stations while others are also competing to buy up fuel in other stations to enable the movement of their delegates.”
The source also mentioned that political parties had secured accommodation in various hotels in Abuja for delegates.

“All the hotels in Abuja are fully booked. My boss sent me to secure a hotel which we were initially told was available, but when I got there, we were told another group beat us to it,” revealed the source. “Even in Gwagwalada and other hotels in the outskirts, it is the same thing. They are all booked.”

Another source said, “The same politicians buying up petroleum products as we were told even booked hotel accommodation two weeks ago.”

During political party primaries, most parts of Abuja are flooded with party delegates and their teeming supporters. Some delegates sleep inside party support vehicles and sometimes on the streets.
