The Katsina state government has declared August 1 of each year as a special state thanksgiving day to commemorate the creation of the Katsina province in the former province of Zaria.

Speaking at the inauguration of the date, the state governor, Aminu Bello Masari, said the event marked the 86th year that the extinct Katsina province was excavated in Zaria province.

The governor, who ordered that local governments and academic institutions in the state must observe the date annually with special prayers, noted that the importance of commemorating the day with gratitude to God cannot be overstated in view of God’s blessings and rewards for the state.

Masari also prayed for peace to prosper in the state for the rapid development of the Katsina people.

Previously, the chairman of the event’s main organizing committee, Abidu Rafi Yazid, said the date was selected as the special day of thanksgiving because it was on August 1 that the Katsina province was created by the colonial masters.

Also speaking, the Katsina emir, Abdulmimini Labor Usman, was optimistic that the event would unite the people of Katsina, while disapproving of anti-social acts that were damaging to the development of the state.

In his comments, the Emir of Daura, Farouk Umar Farouk, expressed his gratitude to Governor Masari for providing good leadership in the state and prayed for continued peace to help the state maintain its development momentum.
