An­other Kano com­mis­sioner re­signs

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ibrahim Musa Giginyu, Kano, with agency re­port

Kano State Com­mis­sioner for Agri­cul­ture and Nat­u­ral Re­courses, Dr. Baraka Sani, has re­signed as mem­ber of the State Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil. The res­ig­na­tion brought to two the num­ber of com­mis­sion­ers who have re­signed their ap­point­ments in the present ad­min­is­tra­tion.

In 2013, the then state com­mis­sioner of ed­u­ca­tion, Farouk Sambo Iya, who is also a for­mer PDP party chair­man in the state re­signed his ap­point­ment and re­fused to de­camp to the APC when the state gover­nor de­camped.

At­tempts to reach Dr. Baraka on phone failed as she re­fused to pick calls put through to her. How­ever, sources close to the for­mer com­mis­sioner told Daily Trust that she will soon ad­dress the press on the mat­ter. The source also added that the for­mer com­mis­sioner only re­signed from of­fice, but that she is still a mem­ber of the APC.

Re­ports say her res­ig­na­tion fol­lowed dis­agree­ment with Gov. Rabi’u Kwankwaso over se­lec­tion of some can­di­dates for the forth­com­ing lo­cal govern­ment elec­tion.

“The com­mis­sioner was not happy be­cause the gover­nor re­fused to con­sider one of her can­di­dates for the elec­tion in the state’’, the source said.
