Gov. Abba Kabir reappoints Yusuf Shu’aibu dismissed 7 months ago as S.A



The Executive governor of Kano state Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf has approved the reappointment of Yusuf Shu’aibu Imam best known as Ogan Boye to the post of special adviser (S.A) on Youth and Sports nearly seven months after he was sacked following death threats to the Kano state election petition tribunal judges.



We recalled that on September 15, 2023, the Kano State government sacked Ogan Boye from this post following an interview in which he threatened the judges if according to him Justice was not served at the then-election petition tussle between the Kano-led New Nigerian People Party (NNPP) candidate Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf and his rival Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The official’s comments drew widespread condemnation from various quarters, including legal professionals, civil society organizations, and the general public.

However, in a statement signed by the Director General, Media, and Publicity Kano state government house Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, Governor Yusuf okays reappointment of Ogan Boye and others as part of the state government’s efforts to place more capable hands to take the state to a greater height.
