Borno Assembly Approves Kadafur as Acting Gov.


    Borno State House of Assembly has approved Deputy Governor, Umar Usman Kadafur, to serve as acting governor, from April 29 to May 19, 2021.

    The approval was based on the request of Governor Babagana Zulum’s request and was conveyed by the Assembly’s Speaker, Abdulkarim Lawan, in a letter dated April 26, 2021.

    Zulum had on April 23, 2021, written to the Assembly, seeking the lawmakers’ approval, to proceed on 21 days vacation.

    The Governor also requested that in compliance with provisions of section 190 (1) of the constitution, which made him notify the House, the Assembly should approve the Deputy Governor to serve as acting Governor throughout the 21 days, in order to constitutionally give him the full powers to handle Borno State’s affairs without resort to the Governor.
