Kano Head of Service resigns as Governor Yusuf directs Isa Dutse to take over.


Kano State Head of Service, Usman Bala Muhammad has resigned his position with the Kano State Government few months after his appointment by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.


Although he gave no reason for his sudden resignation, it is generally held that he was side- lined by key actors in the new administration, who saw him as part of the Ganduje administration than one of their own.

Daily Sun reports that Muhammad had served as Principal Private Secretary, Head of Civil Service and as the Chief of Staff to former Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje before his secret switch of loyalty in favour of Abba Kabiru Yusuf and the NNPP in the last days of the former administration.


In a public notice verifying his resignation, he gave gratitude to Allah for his 33 years in public service while expressing gratitude to the administrations of Kwankwaso, Shekarau, Ganduje and Yusuf for appointing him to serve in different capacities of the governance of the state.

In the meantime, Kano State Government has accepted his resignation and has directed the Permanent Secretary, Charge of Council Affairs, Mazauta Isa Dutse (Mrs) to supervise the office of the Head of Service pending the appointment of a new head.

A press statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Abdullahi Baffa Bichi , said the directive by the Governor is effective from Wednesday, November 1, 2023.
