A video clip on Facebook has shown how Atika Abubakar Yakamba, the 14-years-old secondary school girl who was given a chance by the executive governor of Kano, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to rule the state for 20 minutes addresses the State Executive council at the Government House in Kano.
In the video, the teenager who was given the short period to govern the state on the 11th of October 2021 as part of activities to mark 'the International Day of the Girl Child', told the state's highest decision-making body that provision of infrastructures as part governance, as well as how to put an end to the proliferation of beggars in the state are some key areas that need focus at the moment.
The Facebook post that captures the video can be seen below. You can also click on these colored words to watch the video where the intelligent young girl addressed the state cabinet members.
Recall that shortly after the story of the 20-minutes-rule surfaces on social media in the country, a lot of persons criticized the Kano State governor on the group that 20 minutes is not enough for adults to make any impact on governance talk more of a teenager.
