Further, Abba declared that the coast is now clear for the journey of restoration of sustainable development in all the sectors, where every Kobo of the public fund spent will not only be justifiable but accountable in Kano State under his watch.

In the statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary, Sunusi Tofa, Kano State Governor-elect assured that all the public officials including political appointees that will serve in his administration will be mandated to follow suit of asset declaration as required by the Law.
