Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has forwarded the list of commissioner nominees to the state House of Assembly for confirmation.

Daily Trust reports that eight commissioners had resigned from the State Executive Council prior to the primary elections of the All Progressives Congress (APC), among whom were those interested in contesting elective positions in the 2023 general elections.

The development was in line with the Electoral Act, 2022 as amended.

Among the ministries without commissioners in the state currently are the Ministries of Education, Budget and Planning, Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Water Resources, Special Duties, Agriculture, Rural Development, and Water Resources and Tourism.

However, Speaker of the House, Hamisu Chidari, read the governor’s letter at the plenary on Monday, mentioning the names of the eight nominees.

According to the Speaker, the nominees are: Ibrahim Dan’azumi Gwarzo, Abdulhalim Liman Dan Maliki, Lamin Sani Zawiyya, Ya’u Abdullahi Yanshana, Garba Yusif Abubakar, Yusif Jibril Rurum, Adamu Abdu Panda and Saleh Kausani.

Yanshana was a former Speaker of Kano State House of Assembly while Abubakar was an ally of an ex-governor of the state, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau.

Meanwhile, Chidari said the commissioner nominees would be screened by the House next week Monday.
