Kano State Government To Convert Abandoned Five-Star Hotel To Girls’ School

Kano-State-GovernorThe abandoned multi-billion naira Magwan Water Hotel project in Kano State is to be converted into an all girls boarding secondary school in order to promote girl child education by the state government.

The multi-storey complex originally designed as a five-star hotel, was initiated during the Muhammadu Abubakar Rimi administration, but was abandoned by successive administrations. According to a statement by Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso’s director of press and public relations, Halilu Ibrahim Dantiye, the decision was arrived at during the governor’s visit to the complex.

He said the school will be named First Lady’s College and will be in the same level with the Governor’s College; another special co-educational secondary school set up by his administration.

Kwankwaso stated that the government has set aside adequate funds for the provision of facilities and other requirements for conversion of the 9 –floor structure, adding that the
college is expected to accommodate 1,000 students when it takes off.

Justifying the need for the conversion, Kwankwaso stated, “We realized that the building can no longer serve as a hotel because all its facilities and rooms are so outdated that they cannot fit into modernity. That is why we decided to convert it into a mega secondary school for the benefit of our female children”.
