Chairman of Gwale Local Government Council, Khalid Ishaq Diso has been suspended for three months by the Kano State House of Assembly for allegedly selling government properties.
The allegation against Diso was made by his councillors. House standing committee on local governments and chieftaincy affairs presented the report during a plenary session presided over by the Speaker, Alhaji Isma’il Jibril Falgore.
Alhaji Hamza Zubairu Massu explained that the committee had carefully scrutinized the allegations contained in the petition by six of the 10 Gwale councillors. The allegations against the suspended chairman include illegal selling of government properties and taking decisions without consultations.
The Assembly directed the Vice Chairman to take over the affairs of the council, pending the outcome of the investigation.
