Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State on Saturday said his administration would resuscitate the state-owned Triumph Newspapers.

Ganduje disclosed this in Sokoto at a media interaction on the sideline of a three-day retreat for officials and stakeholders of the State’s Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) on “Political Party Management’’.

He said, “We are all aware that running a government media is no longer profitable and that was what affected the newspaper.’’

“The outfit was established by our late political icon and a former Governor in Kano State, Alhaji Abubakar Rimi.

“So, we will do whatever it takes to bring the newspaper back to the streets in his honour.

“This is also to help us in further enlightening the people on the people-oriented policies and programmes of this administration,’’ The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quotes Ganduje as saying.

The governor underscored the importance of the media in the society.

The governor lamented that, in Nigeria, political parties usually “go into exile’’ after elections.

“This is not supposed to be so and this is what we want to change in Kano.

“The political parties are the backbone of democracy; just as internal democracy and party supremacy are also crucial,’’ Ganduje said.

Ganduje said that the retreat was organised to reposition the party in the state for better service delivery by the government.
