THE MISPLACEMENT OF PRIORITY: Polishing Kofar Ruwa-Kurna Underpass/Subway, amidst of poor health and educational systems in Kano state.

It’s obvious to say that proper health and quality education symbolizes not only well-being and literacy, but rather, it represents global ranking and appreciative level of standard of living. In addition, health sector becomes indicator for any societal development, same as educational sector. Both of them contributes immensely. Hence, they utmost other sectors in human society.
So, we all believed that health and education are primacy for sustainable development. More so, they are believed to be basic necessity of our lives, without which our lives are in jeopardy.
KANO STATE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM
Despite the popular slogan of “ilimi kyauta kuma dole” which implies; “Free education and compulsory”, this emerged as a way to reduce the level of out-school pupils at the Kano State level and also to accelerate high literacy in the state.
But unfortunately, with all these developments of so called free and compulsory education, it jeopardizes education at that basic level. This is due to lack of adequate learning materials along with lack of conducive learning environment, which in return as a factor leading to lack of performance of those(pupils) attending public school or government-owned school in kano State.
KANO HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
More over, the same scenario at government-owned hospitals or public hospitals. Government hospitals have very poor health care delivering systems. Everyone knows that and have no point in arguing.
I don’t get it, how and why kano state government decided to spends over five hundred million naira (500,000, 000) for just polishing Kofar Ruwa-Kurna subway/underpass, I’m very perplexed for this development.
Believe me or not, here (on this project) government ‘backed up wrong tree’ and yet, it would not yields any utmost change in kano state in particular and Nigeria in general.
Lastly, misplacement of priority is in the sense that; there are many incomplete projects in abundance and left them aside without finalising, it’s however, a point of rhetorical question; why government misplaced our resources? Why?
