Kano state Governor, Umar Ganduje, today presided over the State’s weekly executive council meeting.
The meeting was held at the council chambers and it is the first one that the new Deputy Governor, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, is attending.
This was revealed by Ganduje’s media aide, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, via his Twitter page.
He posted images from the meeting and wrote: “H.E @GovUmarGanduje is currently presiding over the State’s weekly executive council meeting holding at the council chambers. This will be the 1st council, that the new Deputy Governor of Kano State Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna is attending.”
This comes a day after the Kano House of Assembly opened a probe into the bribe-taking videos that implicated the Governor.
Raising a matter of urgent public importance on Monday, a member representing Warawa Constituency, Labaran Madari, said the assembly should investigate the authenticity of the video and take measures.
Madari stated that the videos had brought the institution of governance in the state to disrepute and therefore the need for the legislators to take urgent action.
The matter was seconded by Baffa Dan’Agundi, a member representing Kano Municipal.
