Kano State House of Assembly has confirmed Dr Nasiru yusif Gawuna as the new deputy governor of the state.
The house confirmed nomination of Dr Nasiru yusif Gawuna on Tuesday during the plenary presided over by the speaker, Hon. Kabiru Alhassan Rurum.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje last week forwarded the name of Gawuna to house as replacement for former deputy governor, Prof. Hafiz Abubakar that resigned in August.
Prof. Abubukar resigned his position after defecting from All Progressives Congress to Peoples Democratic Party.
The former deputy governor followed Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso to PDP.
Gawuna, a two term Council chairman and one time president of Youths Sports Federation of Nigeria was chosen from five contestants.
At the plenary, Leader of the Assembly, Bappa Babba Danagundi requested the Assembly for Gawuna’s screening and confirmation.
The Speaker of the Assembly who presented Gawuna before the floor of the Assembly, urged him to present his biography for the public to know his background and political career.
Gawuna in his brief speech appreciated Governor Ganduje for finding him worthy out of millions of competent people in the state and the trust bestowed on him to serve Kano and humanity as Deputy Governor.
After answering a series of questions posed to him by members of the Assembly, Speaker Rurum confirmed Gawuna as the Deputy Governor of Kano state amidst cheers by thousands of Gawuna’s supporters who thronged the Assembly complex for the screening.
