The Kano Central Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso yesterday donated over N40 million to Kano indigenes studying medical sciences in various institutions in Egypt and Sudan.
The Senator said the donation is to help in the upkeep of the students, who he described as the future hope of the state.
The Vice chairman, House of Representative Committee on Sports, Dr Nuhu Danburam, at the Kwankwasiyya Foundation fund raising programme in Kano made this known on behalf of the former governor.
Members of the Kwankwasiyya raised N41 million through voluntary donations for onward distribution to the benefitting foreign students on behalf of Kwankwaso.
He added that on successful completion of their studies, they are expected to return and contribute their quota to national development.
Dr Nuhu also affirmed that the planned visit to the state by Kwankwaso on January 30 has not been rescheduled.
