The Governor of Kano State, Dr Umar Abdullahi Ganduje has dissolved the leadership of the Kano Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KACCIMA) with immediate effect for failing to organise fresh elections after the expiration of their tenure.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the Kano State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji.
According to the statement, “The Governor frowned at the sit-tight attitude of the sacked executive officers, ordered their quick removal.
“It became necessary to take the action owing to the inability of the current leadership of the body to organise a fresh and acceptable election long after the expiration of their tenure.”
The statement added that, “Governor Ganduje had already approved the setting up of a nine-member caretaker committee, led by an industrialist, Alhaji Lawan Sale Garo.
“The terms of reference of the committee, among others, are to organise elections within six months, as well as to restore peace and sanity in the entire activities of the chamber.
“Other committee members include Ambassador Muktari Gashash as co-chair, representative of the Ministry of Commerce, Dr Salim Saleh Muhammad, Alhaji Yakubu Uba, Alhaji Tijjani Usman, Alh. Kabiru Hamisu Kura, Hajiya Aisha, Sulaiman Baffa, Alhaji Bashir Dado and Bauran Gaya.”
