The Kano State gov­ern­ment yes­ter­day ap­pointed Sheik Ibrahim Shehi Mai­hula as the new chair­man of the state His­bah Board.

The new ap­pointee re­places Sheik Amin­ud­deen Abubakar, who died early this year in Saudi Ara­bia, af­ter a pro­tracted ill­ness.

In his ad­dress to of­fi­cers of the His­bah Board, Mai­hula de­scribed the job as chal­leng­ing while pledg­ing to be just and dili­gent.

He ap­pealed to staff of the agency to con­duct them­selves re­spon­si­bly as they are em­ployed to up­hold the prin­ci­ples of Is­lam.

Ear­lier in his speech, the Com­man­der-Gen­eral of the Board, Sheik Aminu Ibrahim Dau­rawa, iden­ti­fied in­volve­ment of staff in pol­i­tics and reli­gious sec­tion­al­ism as key chal­lenges im­ped­ing the smooth run­ning of the agency.

He also said there are prepa­ra­tions to es­tab­lish a His­bah Aca­demic School with the aim of giv­ing proper train­ing and skills to of­fi­cers of the Board as well as those who wish to join the agency in or­der to carry out their du­ties pro­fes­sion­ally.

He said the board has 10,000 mem­bers in­clud­ing 300 women spread across the 44 lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas of the state, adding that the new chair­man should strive to unite the staff ir­re­spec­tive of their dif­fer­ences in or­der to suc­ceed.
