Inau­gu­rat­ing the com­mit­tee, Gov­er­nor Ab­dul­lahi Umar Gan­duje charged mem­bers to gen­er­ate ideas and rec­om­men­da­tions that would re­flect the views and as­pi­ra­tions of the peo­ple of Kano on re­struc­tur­ing and amend­ment of the con­sti­tu­tion.

“In the same vein, the com­mit­tee will make ap­pro­pri­ate rec­om­men­da­tions to the state gov­ern­ment on 13 spe­cific ar­eas in­clud­ing sys­tem of gov­ern­ment, type of leg­is­la­ture, fed­eral struc­ture, power shar­ing and ro­ta­tion, de­vo­lu­tion of pow­ers, rev­enue al­lo­ca­tion for­mula and land ten­ure sys­tem.
