The directive followed a motion by Baffa Babba-Dan-Agundi, member representing Kano Municipal Constituency and Chairman, House Committee on Education.

The motion was unanimously adopted by all the 40 members of the State Assembly. The House urged the 44 local government councils to comply with the order within one month.

The House directed that the Kwankwasiyya inscriptions, linked to former Gov. Rabiu Kwakwanso, be replaced with the names of prominent citizens of the state.

The decision is the latest sign that the row between Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje and his predecessor has deteriorated. On Tuesday, Mr. Kwankwaso’s house in Kano was barricaded by armed police.
