The Kano State House of Assembly has confirmed the appointment of Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna as the new deputy governor of the state.

This followed the resignation Hafiz Abubakar, in August 2018 as the deputy governor of the state. Abubakar later defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Governor Umar Ganduje had on Monday officially forwarded the name of the deputy governor nominee to the legislative chamber for screening.

The Special Assistant to the governor on Media, Salihu Tanko Yakassai, confirmed the development via his Twitter handle, @dawisu.

“The incoming Deputy Governor of Kano State Hon Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna has been screened by the Kano State House of Assembly which paves the way for his swearing in by H.E@GovUmarGanduje,” he twitted

Gawuna, until his recent appointment, was the Commissioner for Agriculture in the state.
