 Kano Assembly gives Ganduje 48hrs ultimatum to sack revenue board chair GANDUJE44518

The Kano State House of Assembly has given Governor Umar Abdullahi Ganduje 48 hours to remove the Chairman of the State Revenue Board, AbduRazak Salihi, for violating the constitutional provision of the nation and disrespect to the legislative chambers.

The Chairman was said to have refused to disclose the house position of the state revenue collection despite a series of requests by the legislature, but at the same time wrote and submitted the reports to the government through the Permanent Secretary, Bureau of Land.

Similarly, the house, through the Speaker, Engr. Hamisu Chidari, frowned at the nonchalant attitude of the chairman who was summoned but lied to them.

The revenue chairman was also said to have connived with the government without the notice of the House to unilaterally reduce ground tenement rates of the Independent Petroleum Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) from N250 to N100 which the house described as a total violation of the nation’s constitution.

In their separate remarks on the floor of the House, the legislative members were furious with what they described as the non performance of the chairman in revenue collection as well as lack of knowledge of what revenue is.

Chidari said the house has agreed to set up an eight-man committee that would investigate why Kano falls from second position in revenue collections after Lagos to now10th position.
