Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, has taken decisive action by inaugurating two judicial commissions of inquiry. These commissions will delve into allegations of misappropriation of public funds, political violence, and cases of missing persons spanning from 2015 to 2023, during the tenure of his predecessor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

During the inauguration ceremony held on Thursday, Governor Yusuf emphasized the importance of holding individuals accountable for their actions.


He urged the panel members to diligently investigate and ensure that anyone found guilty faces the full consequences of the law.

The governor reiterated his commitment to fulfilling his inaugural promise of unraveling and prosecuting those responsible for any instances of political violence that occurred in the state.

“Political violence is a major setback to democracy worldwide. It leads to loss of lives and property as well as mistrust on the part of the people and those in power.”

“The disturbing cases of political killings especially in 2023 must not be swept under the carpet, this is to ensure we prevent future occurrences.

“The first commission under Justice Zuwaira Yusuf will look into cases of political violence and missing persons from 2015-2023.

“We expect them to unravel the criminal network involved and unmask the sponsors to face justice, find its causes and find out where violence is associated with 2015, 2019 and 2013.”

During the inauguration of the second commission of inquiry led by Justice Faruk Lawan, Governor Abba Yusuf outlined the commission’s mandate to investigate cases of misappropriation of public property and assets.

He urged Justice Lawan and his team to thoroughly probe instances of misappropriation, particularly those involving the previous administration, both within and outside the state.

Governor Yusuf clarified that the initiative is not politically motivated nor aimed at targeting specific individuals. Instead, it is a response to the demands of the people of Kano State for accountability and transparency in governance.

He emphasized the importance of the commission members maintaining their integrity and remaining true to their oath and the interests of the people of Kano. Justice and fairness, he stressed, must prevail throughout the inquiry process.

In a related development, Alhassan Doguwa, a prominent member of the House of Representatives, who was arrested during the last general election on charges of arson and murder, was subsequently released on bail.
