The Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has finally picked his commissioner for Agriculture, Nasiru Gawuna, as his deputy, reliable sources confirmed to DAILY NIGERIAN.

The position became vacant, following the resignation of Hafiz Abubakar on August 5.

Mr Gawuna, a former local government chairman and onetime president of Youth Sports Federation of Nigeria, was chosen among at least four contenders considered by the governor.

“His name has already been forwarded to Kano State House of Assembly for clearance. He is expected to be sworn-in as deputy governor on Wednesday or Thursday,” said an inside source who preferred not to be named.
