Kano, according to him, “also corresponded with the federal government on infrastructural development in the judiciary”, while assuring that the choice of Kano was not accidental, he noted that “Kano has consolidated the spirit of the retreat .”
In the field of infrastructural development, the minister notes that Kano is one of the frontline countries in the field of viaducts and other infrastructural developments.
In his brief remarks, Governor Ganduje announced that “a Judiciary Commission has been established to determine how to relieve our correctional centers across the state, as directed by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari.”
“We are trying to assist the judiciary so that the administration of justice can be in line with global best practices. That is one of the reasons why we are also making the sector digital.”
