Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State has approved the appointment of an additional 94 Senior Special Assistants.
This is contained in a statement issued by his Press Secretary, Malam Bature Dawakin-Tofa, in Kano on Tuesday.
Only five women were among the 94 newly appointed aides. The women are, Rahama Kabeer Fagge, Senior Special Reporter I, Government House; Amina Isah Bebeji, Special Reporter, SEMA; Maijidda Garba, Special Reporter, REB; Fatima Usman Muhammad, Senior Special Reporter, KNARDA; and Asiya Muhammad Umar, Special Reporter, Hospitality Management Institute.
The appointments take immediate effect. This latest appointment by the governor is the second in September.
Yusuf had earlier in the month appointed 14 additional Special Advisers and 44 Senior Special Reporters to various ministries, departments, and agencies in the state.
As against the five in this latest appointment, 10 women were among the 44 Senior Special Reporters and two as Special Advisers.
NewsWireNGR reports that the Kano Governorship Election Petition Tribunal had sacked Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) and declared Nasir Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the March 18 election.
Meanwhile, Yusuf rejected the Tribunal’s verdict describing it as “unfair” and “a miscarriage of justice”.
He vowed to appeal against the judgement, and urged his supporters to remain calm.
“I call on our people to remain calm. We will appeal the judgement, and we are sure justice will be done.
“Let our people be reassured that we will do everything possible to retain this widely acclaimed mandate”, he added.
