Yesterday, Iliyasu Kwankwaso, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso’s nephew, tops the list of five new nominees sent to Kano State House of Assembly, for approval as commissioners.
Other high ranking politicians who made the list involved the sitting Chairman, Kano chapter of Nigeria Bar Association, NBA, Ibrahim Muhammad, Engr. Aminu Aliyu, Aminu Amu, Aishattu Jaafar and Ahmed Rabiu.
In a letter to Kano State House of Assembly, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje requested the legislators to screen the six commissioner-nominees. Mr. Yusif read the letter during the plenary, to members for their contributions and revisions. In addition, he informed the nominees to present themselves in person to the Assembly today for the screening.
Governor Ganduje’s move has brought tension between members of the State Executive Council, as it is evident that six commissioners will be dropped.
