The Kano State House of Assembly has given Governor Abdullahi Ganduje a 48-hour ultimatum to remove the Chairman of the state’s Revenue Board, AbduRazak Salihi for allegedly violating the constitutional provision of the nation and disrespect to the legislative chamber.
The Speaker, Engr. Hamisu Chidari, however, disclosed that the House had agreed to set up an eight-man committee that would investigate why Kano fell from the second position in revenue collection after Lagos to now the 10th position.
It will be recalled that the chairman was said to have refused to disclose to the House, the position of the state’s revenue collection, despite series of requests by the legislature.
The revenue chairman was also said to have allegedly connived with the government without the notice of the House to unilaterally reduce the ground tenement rate of the IPMAN from N250 to N100 which the House described as “a total violation of the national constitution.”
He was said to have written and submitted a report to the government instead of through the Permanent Secretary, Bureau of Lands.
