Kano Govt Opens Lawyers Office Who Led Shekarau’s Faction In Court After Public Bashing 




Kano state government has unseal the office of the Lawyer that represented the Senator Ibrahim Shekarau-led faction of the All Progressive Congress , Barr. Nureini Jimoh, SAN, in a case the Abdullahi Ganduje faction lost yesterday, few hours after sealing the property on No.16c Murtala Mohammed Way due to public outcry.

Reports say that Mr Jimoh on Tuesday represented the Senator Ibrahim Shekarau-led faction to secure a victory against the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje-led group of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.


The lawyer who spoke to Journalists expressed surprise over the sealing of the property as the compound houses a six story building and some other offices in the premises, apart from his office.

One of the tenant in the premises said the Lawyer’s office was served the notice of demand for ground rent of over N3b by the state Bureau of Land on Wednesday morning.


‘’ This is just political, it is just because of the yesterday case in court that the government side lost, the angry tenant told journalist.

‘’How can they serve notice in the morning and lock the premises at noon, despite the fact that it is not the tenant that is supposed to pay ground rent, they served only the lawyer.’’


Since the sealing of the property by Kano State Government Wednesday morning, it has been receiving a lot of back lashes over the action in the media and within Kano metropolis that many attributed to political reasons and the court judgment of Tuesday against Ganduje led factions of the APC.

‘’Also you can see that when they came to unseal the presmises, they are not with police personnel.

CITAD Trains Remand Home Inmates In Kano




By Ozumi Abdul

Centre for information Technology and Development (CITAD) on Thursday concluded the training of inmates in the remand home in Goron Dutse, Kano state on ICT and phone repairs.

The training which lasted for six weeks was segmented into three weeks each, with the first segment dedicated to ICT training and the other for phone repairs.

While speaking, the Deputy Director of CITAD, Ahmad Abdullahi Yakasai, said his organization has been combing the entire country in the bid to bring technological development to bear upon every area of humanity, but however discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined.

Yakasai noted that this informed the reason for his organization’s training of the underaged inmates of the remand home, because the inmates are not enjoying the benefits of ICT.

He said that CITAD finds it imperative to organise a training of such nature to build the capacities of the inmates, adding that unemployment might be the reason why they are in detention.

He exuded the confidence that with the training, the inmates would not only be self employed, but employers of other people when they are freed from detention.

“Well, as you are aware CITAD is a Centre For Information Technology And Development, we aim to use technology to bring development to the people. We have been working around the country, but we later discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined, not deriving the benefit of technology, and that is the reason we organise this training to build their capacities.

“Also we think that most of them, it might be the issue of unemployment that brought them here. So by the time they leave here, they will be able to stand on their feet and to employ others”, Yakasai said.

On her part, the representative from the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Kano state,Hajiya Abdullahi Hafsat expressed her happiness towards the efforts of CITAD, as well as enjoining the beneficiaries to make use of the opportunity when they returned to their various homes.

Also, the officer in charge of the remand home, Mallam Musa Muhammad Tarauni commanded CITAD for their gesture, promising that the remand home will continue to partner with the organization.
