KNHA Confirms Dije Aboki As Substantive Chief Judge

Kano State House of Assembly has confirmed Jusitice Dije Abdu Aboki as substantive chief judge.

The confirmation was sequel to the screening of the acting Chief Judge by the lawmakers.

Earlier, Kano State House of Assembly had received a letter from the Executive Governor Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf seeking for approval to confirm Dije Aboki as substantive chief Judge, based on the recommendation of the National Judicial council (NJC), as provided by section 271 of the Nigerian constitution.

The majority leader of the house, Alhaji Lawan Hussaini Dala moved a motion, where the nominee was invited into the chamber for screening.

Members representing Suma’ila, Ungoggo and Takai, scrutinized Dije Aboki and asked her questions on how she would use her position to strengthen Kano legal system, access to justice and corruption in the judicial system.

The nominee explained that, modalities had been put in place to appoint more judges, to reduce the bulk of cases especially in magistrate courts.

After careful scrutiny, the house confirmed Dije Abdu Aboki as the substantive chief Judge of Kano state.

Similarly, the house has received another letter, from the executive seeking for confirmation of three commissioner nominees.

Those nominated include Ibrahim Jibril Fagge, Ali Namadi and Amina Abdullahi Sani.

The house invited the three nominees to appear before it at 1:00 pm today for screening.
