Kano Extends Tenure Of 44 Interim Management Committees For LGAs


Longtong YakubuThe Kano State House of Assembly yesterday received a letter from the Kano State deputy governor, comrade Aminu Gwarzo, seeking to extend the tenure of the Interim Management Committees (IMCs) for the 44 local government areas of the State.

The deputy governor, who is also the commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, is seeking the approval following the expiration of the IMC’s first three months in office.

While reading the letter of request during Friday’s plenary session, speaker of the assembly, Hon Ismail Falgore pointed out that the tenure of the IMCs expires on June 8, 2024.

“I bring to the house to consider and approve the committee for the interim management committee to steer the affairs of their respective local governments for another period from June 9 to September 9, 2024,” part of the letter stated.

Reacting, member representing Dala constituency, Lawan Dala, noted that based on provisions of the law, the committees can only be reinstated before the said expiration date, hence the need for them to be invited early enough to be approved for another three months before an election would be conducted.

After careful deliberations, the house agreed for the IMCs to be invited on Monday, May 27, 2024 for approval as IMCs for another three months.

The house also conducted the first reading of the Kano State Second Class Emirate Councils Establishment Bill, 2024.
