In response to a letter the House had received requesting the confirmation of nine nominees, the Kano State House of Assembly on Monday vetted and approved the appointment of nine commissioners proposed by Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje. The House announced Dr. Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa as an additional nominee during Monday’s plenary session, which was presided over by the Speaker, Hon. Hamisu Ibrahim-Chidari.
The Speaker claims that Dr. Aminu Ibrahim-Tsanyawa has received an invitation to appear before the House tomorrow (Tuesday) for screening. Ibrahim Dan’azumi, Abdulhalim Abdullahi, Lamin Sani-Zawiyya, Ya’u Abdullahi-Yan’shana, Garba Yusuf Abubakar, and Dr. Yusuf Jibirin are among the new commissioners. Others include Dr. Ali Burum Burum, Adamu Fanda, and Saleh Kausami.
After thorough consideration by the lawmakers, the nine nominations were inspected and approved as commissioners and members of the Kano State Executive Council. Only a few minutes were given to some of the nominees, past Speakers, and Commissioners, to describe their prior accomplishments.
Dr. Ali Burum-Burum complimented the House on behalf of his colleagues for the efficient way the exercise was handled.
Dr. Burum-Burum declared that he would try his best to see that he helps the Executive Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, attain his goals and dreams by raising Kano to a greater altitude. The House has directed the Standing Committee on Women’s Affairs to provide a report to the body within two weeks for further legislative action on the 2018 change to the law about people with disabilities. Before this, Labaran Abdul-Madari, the Majority Leader of the House, stated that if passed, the PWD law will enhance service delivery and safeguard the rights of those who live with disabilities.
The bill will improve investment, good health, and education while reducing the disparity between individuals with special needs and those who are able-bodied.
