''After retirement the untired General went home and become the chairman BOT of "Gidauniya Jihar Katsina"( an NGO founded after a fund raising to develop katsina state) in 1991. He led for 17 years and voluntarily retired in 2009. It was really the best of all times; we saw prudence, accountability and honesty and resourcefulness in stewardship, for, more than 500 millions were spent under Buhari in different projects: drilling boreholes, agric loans, healthcare facilities, learning materials for schools etc. Truly, the katsina people first spotted the beacon of hope''. - Ibrahim Muhammad Kurfi on facebook.
