Niger state governor, Babangida Aliyu

Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger State says he is not breeding anaconda snakes in his farm and does not own a university in Ghana.

Aliyu was reacting to recent media reports that he owns two large snakes and a university. While addressing children in Minna on Sunday as part of activities to mark this year’s Children’s Day, the governor dismissed the rumours as untrue.

“I have no snakes in my farm and neither do I have a University in Ghana,” he said. “The lies are by enemies of progress.”

He said people should disregard such talks, especially children who could be easily swayed. “Even me, I am afraid of snakes,” he said.

He told the children to take their education serious as it is the only legacy their parents and government could give to them.

Aliyu said the state government “does not want to see any child hawking or selling things on the streets and has no room for  truancy”.

He promised to create a conducive environment for learning by providing enabling tools.
