FACE-TO-FACE WITH ZAURA, KANO’S TITANIC EAGER BEAVER

By Al-Amin Ciroma

It is good to say that whenever you face Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkareem Zaura, you will attest to the wit and wisdom of the Kano State political bigwig, for decamping to the ruling APC from his former party. He is one person who has chosen to fully imbibe the spirit of internal democracy, egalitarianism, and social equality.

A. A. Zaura as he is fondly called by his supporters is determined to encourage himself and followers to always be there and watch his smoke as he ensures he breeds in his great ideas for the betterment of his immediate society.

A very strong, shrewdness, erudite, and calculated young leader, in his professional and political career, spanning decades of philanthropism, Abdulsalam is undoubtedly the new face of hope for the Kano people since his presence as a politician with the best résumé is capable to consolidate on the next level milestones of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje. Many hardworking youths in the state vow not to rest on their oars until they achieved their desire of enthroning a Zaura candidacy.

A mere observation of the body language of the Kano State indigene will inform you that all are looking around for such personality with the political clout and appeal to the various interest groups in the state, that can consolidate on whatever achievements the Ganduje led-administration has made. To this effect, Zaura is seen as a bridge-builder with a great personality and mentality that recognizes all and sundry in Kano State, there cannot be a better replacement for His Excellency Governor Ganduje come 2023.

His core manifesto and unique life of service are so calculative that even his opponents knew truly well that their ideas will never fly in as much as the master of the game is in the building! This, everyone in Kano today, discovered that one of the All Progressives Congress (APC) movers and shakers, Zaura, is the best man for the number one set of Kano State.

An ardent believer in developing distinct approaches needed to help the people thrive in various aspects of human aspiration, Zaura, in a short time, has been able to empower many individuals and groups and has also inculcated in them the need for hard work. He flourishes into his dear state with a clear mind in order to make progress. His recent trip to Kano over the weekend has sent a signal that when the eagle lands, parrots keep mum!

He is described as a young personality and a leader of leaders, a political behemoth, and a quintessence of progressive politics in Kano State today. His stick-to-itiveness ensures that every job is carried out efficiently. As a team player and understands teamwork, Zaura is energetic and very keen on jobs creation, so as to ensure that the people, especially the youths are given the needed support and opportunity in all spheres of human endeavors.

These facts are words on the marble since most of the political opponents dread the young and vigorous Zaura, so much so that in their wishful thinking they hope he gives way or simply quit the stage! Of course, you need no further explanation on all those who are afraid of the lion, they already have butterflies in their stomach as the young man paves his way to success.

It is not surprising that Mr. Zaura remained one personality with a perfect blend of wisdom, compassion, and practical experience. If you follow closely the trajectory of the Honourable Zaura, you will realize that he centers his life and leadership around such timeless principles as fairness, commitment, equity, justice, integrity, and compassion which constitute the roots of every person, family, or institution that has ever succeeded. It is these same principles that he teaches the people around him.
