Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has approved the appointment of Barrister Mahmoud Balarabe as the acting Executive Chairman of Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC).
Chief Press Secretary to Governor Ganduje, Abba Anwar, announced this in a statement on Thursday.
“The appointment is with immediate effect and directed the acting Executive Chairman to discharge his duties diligently, according to the laid down procedures establishing the Commission,” the statement read.
Until his appointment, Balarabe was a Director for Public Prosecution at the state Ministry of Justice.
He will succeed Muhuyi Magaji Rimin Gado who was suspended by the state House of Assembly earlier this week for rejecting the state government appointee to his agency.
Akelicious had reported that Barrister Rimin Gado was suspended for one month to give room for the Anti-corruption Committee of the Assembly to investigate alleged misconducts in the commission.
