After tribunal’s sack, Kano Governor appoints 94 new aides In a recent development, Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State has made the decision to appoint 94 senior special assistants, as confirmed by a statement released by his press secretary, Bature Dawakin-Tofa. However, there is concern over the lack of gender diversity among the newly appointed aides, with only five women among the 94 individuals chosen for the positions. This news has raised questions about the level of inclusivity and equal representation within the governor’s administration. The appointments mark a significant expansion of the governor’s cabinet, but it remains to be seen whether efforts will be made to address the gender imbalance in future appointments. The governor earlier appointed 72 special assistants. Only five women were among the 94 newly appointed aides announced by the governor. They include Rahama Kabeer Fagge, Senior Special Reporter I, Government House; Amina Isah Bebeji, Special Reporter, SEMA; Maijidda Garba, Special Reporter, REB; Fatima Usman Muhammad, Senior Special Reporter, KNARDA; and Asiya Muhammad Umar, Special Reporter, Hospitality Management Institute. Mr Dawakin-Tofa said all the appointments take immediate effect.
