A retired lecturer, a failed House of Representatives candidate, a Shekarau loyalist and a former acting chairman of the All Progressives Candidate have passed screening to be appointed commissioners in Kano state.
The Kano State House of Assembly approved the nomination of the four candidates on Wednesday after interrogating two of them.
KANO TODAY reports that Muhammad Tahar Adamu “Baba Impossible”, a retired lecturer in the department of Nigerian Languages Bayero University Kano was approved by the house without interrogation.
Baba Impossible, an ardent supporter of governor Abdullahi Ganduje was asked to ‘take a bow and leave’ in sympathy with the death of his son who was shot on Tuesday in Zamfara state.
Another candidate, Bashir Yahaya Karaye, a one-time chairman of the APC in Kano and current spokesperson of the party was also approved without any questions because he is a former legislator.
However, former chairman Kano Municipal local government, Mukhtar Ishaq Yakasai received questions from members of the house before being approved.
Pundits believe that Yakasai’s nomination is to compensate him for losing a House of Representatives primary election to Sha’aban Ibrahim Sharada, personal assistant to the president on broadcast media.
Shehu Na-Allah Kura, former chairman Kura local government and one of the politicians that decamped to the APC from the PDP with former governor Ibrahim Shekarau also faced some questions before being approved for the appointment.
