The Executive Chairman of the Kano Internal Revenue Service (KIRS), Alhaji Sani AbdulQadir Dambo, has resigned from his position.
In a letter dated Thursday, April 9, 2020, and addressed to the Secretary to the State Government, Dambo disclosed that his resignation takes immediate effect.
Dambo, who did not disclose the reasons for his resignation, thanked the Executive Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, OFR, for the opportunity to serve the state.
“I thank the good people of Kano State for the cooperation accorded towards enhancing internally generated revenue and also pray for the prosperity of the state in all ramifications, please,” he said.
The Chairman’s resignation may be connected to developments from an ongoing investigation of corruption against him.
This reporter gathered that the investigation panel had suspended the embattled Chairman on Wednesday after he was issued a query.
A letter signed on Wednesday, March 8, by the Secretary to the State Government, revealed that Governor Ganduje had appointed Bala Mohammed to replace AbdulQadir Dambo, as acting Chairman “with immediate effect.”
Bala Mohammed was, until this appointment, the Managing Director of the Kano State Agricultural Supply Company (KASCO).
The letter obtained by this reporter disclosed that Mohammed will “oversee the affairs of the Kano Internal Revenue Service on a temporary basis, pending the appointment of an Executive Chairman of the Agency.”
Bala Mohammed replaces Sani Dambo, who was appointed as Executive Chairman of the KIRS, in November 2015.
