Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has promised that he will soon sign into law Kano State Judiciary Funds Management (Financial Autonomy) Bill 2021.

Ganduje made the promise on Monday during the Magistrates Association of Nigeria (MAN) Annual Week, 2021, held at Coronation Hall, Government House, Kano.

He said the event came at a time when his government was ready to receive and sign into law three important bills forwarded by the Kano State Judiciary to the Kano State House of Assembly for passage.

The governor said: “These are Kano State Judiciary Funds Management (Financial Autonomy) Bill 2021, Kano State Magistrates, Shari’ah Court Judges and other Judiciary Staff (Harmonization of Condition of Service) Bill, 2021 and Kano Multi-Door Court Bill, 2021”.

Ganduje said he would not hesitate to sign the bills to ensure full implementation as soon as they were passed by the State Assembly.

“By signing the Bills into Law, our commitment towards ensuring the independence as well as the financial autonomy of the judiciary will be sustained.

“This, therefore, demonstrates our goodwill and determination in promoting the rule of law, equity and fairness in the administration of justice in the state,” he said.
