The outgoing governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, will perform the official handing over of the affairs of the state to the governor-elect, Abba Yusuf.
A statement by the outgoing commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Muhammad Garba, stated that the event is billed for 9:00pm on Sunday, May 28 at the Government House, Kano.
He said the Kano state Government Transition Committee had already communicated the development to the Transition Committee of the governor-elect.
Mr Garba pointed out that the two committees had met within the week during which a handing over document was presented to the governor-elect committee, adding that they also worked out a harmonised agenda on the handing over ceremony.
The commissioner explained that Mr Ganduje would shortly after the event depart for Abuja as head of Kano delegation to the inauguration of the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, on Monday.
He said the governor’s departure was also necessitated to beat the deadline for the closure of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for the inauguration ceremony.
The statement called on people to continue to pray for peace and development in the state.
