Katsina Assembly confirms SIEC chairman
Katsina State House of Assembly has confirmed the appointment of Alhaji Ibrahim Bako as the chairman of the State Independent Electoral Commission (SIEC).
Governor Aminu Masari nominated the candidate who was subsequently screened and confirmed by the assembly at its sitting yesterday.
Alhaji Bako was a former Director of Programme at the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), Abuja, before he retired.
In another development, Governor Masari has sent an executive bill to the State House of Assembly seeking to rename the Ibrahim Shema ICT and Business Institute to Katsina Institute of Technology and Management.
The bill also seeks an amendment to Section 12 subsection 1 and 2 that will replace the office of Director of Finance and Accounts with that of Bursar.
