Dikko Radda, governor of Katsina, has appointed Ahmad Daku, a former military governor of Kano and Sokoto, as chairman of the state Hisbah board.

In a statement on Wednesday, Ibrahim Kaula, chief press secretary to the governor, said Radda also approved the appointments into other boards and commissions.

The statement listed the boards and commissions as the Local Government Services Commission (LGSC), Fiscal Responsibility Commission, Hisbah Board, Zakat and Waqf (Administration and Allied Matters) Board, and the Katsina State Project Implementation and Monitoring and Evaluation (SPIME) office.

Daku was the former military governor of Kano from 1985 to 1987 and was redeployed to Sokoto state from 1987 to 1990.


In 2002, he headed the directorate of pilgrims affairs and contested the governorship election in Katsina but lost to the late Umar Yar’Adua in 2003.

Kaula said the governor appointed Ahmad Filin-Samji as the executive chairman of the new Zakat and Waqf board, and responsible for alms and endowment administration and allied matters.

He added that Abubakar Yusuf is the new executive secretary of the Zakat board with Naziru Maibaru, and Da’ah Amin-Halilu as members.


He said the governor also appointed Aminu Abubakar as commander of the hisbah board, while Kamal Alti, Iliya Imam and Sirajo Lawal-Katsayal would serve as members.

The chief press secretary said Usman Maska is the executive chairman of the local government service commission.

Others to serve the commission include Abubakar Abdulkadir, Abdulaziz Danyari, Mansur Murnai, Sani Aliyu-Jarkuka, Abdullahi Kutawa and Lawal Dalhatu as permanent commissioners.

“The appointment of the board members supersedes the earlier one announced last month,” NAN quoted Kaula as saying.
