At least four leading Islamic clerics in Kano State have tendered their resignation from the administration of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
Those who tendered their resignation are Commander-General of Hisbah, Aminu Daurawa; the chairman of Kano State Pilgrims Board, Abba Koki; the Permanent Commissioner I at Shariah Implementation Agency, Abubakar Kandahar and; Permanent Commissioner II at Zakkah and Hubsi Commission, Nazifi Inuwa.
All the four copies of their resignation letters obtained by DAILY NIGERIAN were dated May 9, 2019.
Mr Daurawa, who is one of the very few clerics who condemned the governor’s bribe-taking videos during his Friday sermons, said in his resignation was based on personal reasons
“The resignation is based on personal reasons,” Messrs Daurawa, Kandahar and Inuwa said in their letters, citing personal commitments that coincide with the demands of the office.
But Mr Koki cited health ground and personal commitments as reasons for his resignation.
Last week, the governor indirectly accused Mr Daurawa of corruption, hinting that he would restructure the Hisbah Board for efficiency and quality service delivery.
