Mallam Nasir El Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna State at the 4th Town Hall meeting of the APC Kaduna State Government unveiled a new Kaduna State logo.
The logo consists of two decorated horses surrounding a shield (similar to the Nigerian Coat of Arms), with a green field underneath the shield where a brown crocodile can be seen. The top of the shield shows the insignia of the Arewa and the bottom of the logo has the motto, “Work and Worship”.
“As a reflection of our confidence in the future of Kaduna State, we are today unveiling a new State Logo. This logo represents a new brand identity for our state. Its constituent elements are rooted in the history and culture of our people. It retains Work and Worship, the old motto of the Northern Region, as our state motto. Let me express gratitude to the honorable members of our State House of Assembly for providing legislative anchor for the State Logo. All government stationery will henceforth carry this insignia.” the Governor said in his keynote address.
About the features of the logo, the green vegetation means agriculture, economy, abundance and conservation; the crocodile which is the creature the state of Kaduna is named after stands for strength, resilience, indestructibility and ancestry; while cattle implies fertility, abundance and nourishment.
