Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, northwest Nigeria has challenged corporate bodies in the State to emulate interventions by Nigerian Breweries plc in the area of Education.

“Education is the best intervention one can give any community, we thank Nigerian Breweries Plc for this partnership because our population is growing, unfortunately land does not grow, so if we don’t educate our children, we will have a big problem. This is why this intervention is crucial, I challenge other corporate bodies to think positively like Nigerian Breweries for Educational interventions,” he stated at the ground breaking ceremony for a block of six class rooms, library and technical laboratory at the Government Technical college Gwale, donated by the brewery.

Represented by his Deputy, Profffesor Hafizu Abubakar, the Governor maintained that “by 2050 Nigeria will be the 3rd most populous nation in the world and that means we must do something now, we have hundreds of corporate bodies who must think like Nigerian Breweries plc for development. Our wages bill is growing everyday whereas our Internal Generated Revenue can not pay salaries which is around 7 billion naira monthly “
