Emerging reports have claimed that about four leading Islamic clerics in Kano state resigned from the administration of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

The two others are Abubakar Kandahar, permanent commissioner I at Shariah Implementation Agency, and permanent commissioner II at Zakkah and Hubsi commission, Nazifi Inuwa.
Daurawa who is one of the very few clerics who condemned the governor’s bribe-taking videos during his sermons, said his decision is personal.
“The resignation is based on personal reasons,” Messrs Daurawa, Kandahar and Inuwa said in their letters, citing personal commitments that coincide with the demands of the office. Koki cited health ground and personal commitments as reasons for his resignation.
