Senators and members of the House of Representatives are basically elected to prove their worth by fashioning out a blue print that would be of immense benefit to the people of their respective constituencies, knowing that credible representation is a responsibility they must not shirk. Many senators and members of the House of Representatives have taken the gauntlet and proven their mettle in that regard and noticeably came up with series of agenda and creditably sponsored high profile motions that were of immense advantage to the electorate.
Therefore, the people of Kano North can be proud for having a man whose political acumen as a senator is not in doubt. Senator Bello Hayatu Gwarzo, everyone knew, had carved a niche for himself knowing his calculus very well and what it takes to convince voters that he is in the senate to make laws and come up with major cardinal thrusts that people of Kano North would exploit to their good advantage. On becoming a senator he adroitly chose to make his senatorial district a bastion of politics without bitterness by affecting a clear paradigm shift that would make all stake holders to discern the inescapable fact that the issue of making one to have an indisputable sense of belonging is paramount.
As a unionist whose stewardship as one time state treasurer of the Nigeria Labour Congress in Kano state, the ebullient senator is an expert in statecraft who is fully conversant with the wheeling and dealing of fruitful struggle. Being in the saddle with no one having the temerity to challenge him in the political battle field, the senator’s perpetual hold on to his seat is a testimony to the fact that he is up and doing in upholding the trust bestowed on him.
The senator was also known to be an impartial arbiter in times of intractable political dispute, using his populist appeal to calm some frayed nerves, and is one who had never failed in his mission to engender peace. No one has ever questioned his score-card as he always showcased what he whole-heartedly believed as the dividend of democracy he had given to the people of his senatorial district.
For him to be understood very well he always give the account of his stewardship blow by blow, with people appreciating what he is doing devoid of allowing primordial considerations to becloud their sense of judgment. Starting with education, the senator built class rooms’ blocks at Junior Secondary School Kanti in Dambatta Local Government area with the classes 100% completed in addition to building similar ones at government Girls Junior Secondary, Dambatta.
In Makoda local government area, Senator Gwarzo had also built class rooms at government secondary schools in Koguna and Makoda, in addition to building similar classes at Government Girls Secondary School, Shuwaki and Junior Secondary school, Yandadi. Similar projects were also executed at Tsanyawa, Bichi, Bagwai, Shanono, Gwarzo, Kabo, Rimin Gado, Tofa and Dawakin Tofa.
Knowing that his mission in healthcare is explicit, Senator Gwarzo has constructed community halls at Gwarzo, Bichi and Dambatta local government Areas and effected the construction of Girls Science College, Gwarzo in addition to constructing 42 numbers solar street light completed at Danzabuwa town in Bichi Local Government Girls Secondary School, Dambatta. But of the senator’s penchant to provide adequate drinking water to the people of Kano north, he had effected the construction of hand pump and bore holes at Gabasawa, Makoda, Kunchi, Tsanyawa, Bichi, Bagwai, Shanono, Gwarzo, Kabo, Rimin Gado, Tofa, Dawakin Tofa and Danbatta Local Government Areas.
On irrigation farming, the senator had effected the construction of 1050 nos. tube wells with 3 inch water pump machines and accessories in each tube well in various locations of Kano north. On solar base water scheme, senator Gwarzo had effected the construction of solar powered bore holes in Gwarzo, Tofa, Bukavu Barracks, Makoda, Kura, and Bichi Local Government Areas. With those feats, people have stopped spitting venom at him due to ideological differences . He is undoubtedly a standing pillar to be so much adored and revered knowing that he is not in the senate to warm bench and his score – card would continue to serve as a point of reference to students of history. This is the crux of the matter.
