Seven Division One clubs were given N500,000 each, 15 Division two clubs got N350,000 each, while 19 Division Three clubs took home N250, 000 each.

Governor Abdullahi  Ganduje said at  Government House in Kano  that the development  was aimed at   motivating  the clubs.

“I am happy that your clubs are doing well and as a government, we should encourage you to do better. We share your passion for the game and we will do our best to create the enabling environment for you to do better, .

Not too long ago, we donated money and football kits to 1,206 football clubs in the state as part of our commitment to the development of sports.” Ganduje  said

He said football is a major instrument of promoting peaceful co-existence, bridging cultural gaps and a critical factor in international relations.

The governor urged football clubs in Kano to sustain their zeal, assuring  them that his administration would not relent in supporting them to win honours  for the state.
