Sokoto Gov Aliyu Begins Probe Of Predecessor Tambuwal


Govenor Ahmed Aliyu of Sokoto State has inaugurated a Judicial Commission of Enquiry to investigate some of the actions taken by the immediate-past administration of Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal while in office.

The panel chaired by a former Chief Judge of Gombe State, Justice Muazu Abdulkadir, is expected to submit its findings within two months.

Governor Aliyu while administering oath on members of the panel, urged them to deliver on their duties in accordance with the rule of law.

The governor said he decided to set up the judicial panel of enquiry so as to yield to the yearnings of the people of the state whom he said deserve to know how their resources were managed during the last administration.

“In order to let people know that I will not compromise, we decided to look for a very competent personality outside the state to be the chairman of the enquiry.

“That is why we go for a former Chief Judge in far away Gombe State to be the chairman. I am sure you will all agree with me that all the members of this panel are men of impeccable character,” he added.

In his remarks while speaking with journalists shortly after taking the oath of office, the chairman of the panel, Justice Muazu Abdulkadir Pindiga, assured that the panel will do its work without fear or favour.

Other members of the judicial commission of enquiry include; Chief Jacob Ochidi, SAN, Usman Abubakar, Lema Sambo Wali Esq, Alhaji Haliru Dingiyadi as well as Nasiru Mohammed Binji Esq, who is expected to serve as the secretary of the judicial commission.
