The chief press secretary to the Kano State governor, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, made this known in a statement he issued yesterday, noting that the appointment takes effect immediately.
Musa is a seasoned civil servant who served in various government ministries, departments and agencies in Kano for over three decades and hails from Kiru local government area.
“Abdullahi Musa served as the permanent secretary, Kano Government House, Council Affairs Directorate, Administration and General Services of Cabinet Office, Ministry of Special Duties, and Servicom Directorate,” the statement said.
He is a graduate of International Relations from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria and bagged a Master’s degree in Public Policy and Administration from Bayero University, Kano and another Master’s degree in Strategy and Security Administration from Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna.
