The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Bayero, has urged eligible voters to collect their Permanent Voter Card (PVC) in preparation for the 2023 general elections.

Emir Bayero made the call yesterday during the traditional Hawan Nasarawa at the government house in Kano.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Hawan Nasarawa is the emir’s payment of traditional homage to the governor of the state after the Eid el-Fitr celebration.

The emir also advised youths in the state to shun social vices, particularly drugs and violence, while imploring parents to monitor the movements and activities of their children and wards to avert any anxiety.

He decried the menace of hoodlums in the state and called on security agencies to go after them.

He called on ýNigerians to continue to live in peace with one another irrespective of their religious or ethnic affiliations.

ýIn his remarks, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje thanked the emir for his contributions to peace, stability and unity in the state.

He attributed the relative peace enjoyed in the state to the adoption of new security measures, community policing and improved coordination among security agencies.

The governor maintained that his government adopted a strategy to further improve the markets by creating an enabling environment for businesses to thrive.

On water scarcity in some parts of Kano metropolis, Ganduje said rehabilitation and expansion works embarked on by the federal government in some areas affected water supply in the state capital.

He said the metropolitan councils had been directed to use water tankers to supply water to residents as an immediate solution.

NAN reports that thousands ýof residents came out as early as 7am in colourful attires to view the Sallah ceremony while security personnel were deployed to maintain law and order.

The traditional Hawan Nasarawa was attended by top government functionaries, members of the diplomatic community, members of the state and national assemblies, and heads of security agencies, as well as community and religious leaders.
