The Kano State House of Assembly has confirmed Nasiru Gawuna as the new Kano Deputy Governor.
Gawuna’s nomination was confirmed after screening by the Kano Assembly on Tuesday. He will be sworn in later today, Channels writes.
He was nominated by the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, following the resignation of the former Deputy Governor, Hafiz Abubakar, over loyalty to Presidential aspirant Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
Gawuna, before his confirmation, was the Commissioner for Agriculture and a two-term Nasarawa Local Govt Chairman.
