A new directive has been issued by the governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, to his appointees just six days before the end of his term in office. Ganduje issued an order requiring all public officers holding political appointments to hand over the responsibilities associated with their offices in accordance with the protocols that were already in place.
This instruction can be found in a statement issued by the office of the Secretary to the State Government and titled “Handover of Activates.” The statement was signed by Hajiya Bilkisu Maimota, who is the permanent secretary. The announcement made exceptions for government appointees whose terms have not yet run out in accordance with the applicable laws of their respective establishments.
A new order has been issued by Ganduje.
Ganduje gave the directive to all commissioners, special advisers, chief executives of Parastatals/Government owned-Companies and other political appointees to handover to the permanent secretaries and director administration and general services in their respective establishments. “They are to make copies of their handover notes to the office of the secretary to the state government for records,” said the notes. Ganduje also directed that all political appointees should handover to the permanent secretaries and director administration and general services in
Ganduje’s audio recording was leaked, and the Kano government finally commented on the meeting between Tinubu and Kwankwaso.
In the meantime, the government of Kano state has stated that it was “mischievous” for the media in Nigeria to lift a story from the purported telephone conversation between Governor Ganduje and Masari, putting Governor Ganduje’s political relationship with Bola Tinubu, the president-elect, at risk. The government of Kano state said this because the story put Governor Ganduje’s political relationship with Bola Tinubu at risk.
According to Malam Muhammad Garba, the commissioner for information and internal affairs in the state, the clip received a disproportionate amount of publicity, and this publicity was sponsored by paid agents who were attempting to change the topic of discussion. According to a statement released by the Commissioner on Saturday, May 20, it was stated that the intention of the paid agents was to sow discord between Tinubu and Ganduje.
The governor of Nigeria has fired all of the commissioners and special assistants.

Obaseki stated that the council would be dissolved with immediate effect as of this moment. During the weekly meeting of the Executive Council that took place on May 3, the governor made the announcement about the firing.
