The Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, Kabiru Rurum, has resigned.
TheNewsGuru.com reports that Rurum’s resignation is coming after he was alleged to have collected N100m bribe to suspend the probe of Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammad Sanusi II, an allegation he blatantly denied few weeks ago.
TheNewsGuru.com reports that Sanusi was accused of mismanaging N4 billion he inherited from his predecessor, Ado Bayero.
His resignation was confirmed in a letter read at plenary by the Deputy Speaker, Ibrahim Chidariof, on Monday.
The Majority Leader of the Assembly, Abdullahi Atta, has been elected the new Speaker.
