Ganduje to hand over power on Sunday, won’t attend successor’s inauguration (see reason)


Outgoing Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State will perform the official handing over of the affairs of the state to the Governor-elect, Malam Abba Yusuf, on Sunday.

This is contained in a statement by the outgoing Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Malam Muhammad Garba, on Sunday in Kano.

Garba said that the event is billed for 9 p.m on May 28 at  the Government House, Kano.

According to him, the State Government Transition Committee has communicated the development to the Transition Committee of the governor-elect.

Garba pointed out that the two committees met within the week during which a handing over document was presented to the governor-elect’s committee and also worked out a harmonised agenda on the handing over ceremony.

The commissioner explained that Ganduje would shortly after the event depart for Abuja as head of Kano delegation to the inauguration of the President-elect, Sen. Bola Tinubu on May 29.

He added that the governor’s departure was also necessitated to beat the deadline for the closure of Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, for the presidential inauguration.

Garba called on people to continue to pray for peace and development of the state.
