The Kano State Government has advocated 35 percent of all appointments to be reserved for women and vulnerable groups in the country to promote gender and equal participation in governance.


The Secretary to the Kano State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji made the call among other 17 recommendations he submitted on Thursday to the House of Representatives Special Committee on the Review of the 1999 Constitution as amended.


Alhaji also maintained that Kano State with the highest population in the country should be accorded preference in anything that relates to human development.


Among other requests submitted by the Kano state government included the change of name for Kunchi Local Government, and Gari Local Government Area.

The SSG emphasized that fiscal public and revenue allocation should be allocated to Local Governments since they are more closer to the people.


“We are also recommending that the thirteen percent deregulation formula should be reviewed downwards to eight percent so as to allow more states to drive more from the pool”



In a remark, the majority leader of the House of Representatives and Chairman Kano Central of the House of Representatives Public hearing for constitution amendment, Alhaji Alhassan Ado Doguwa explained that the efforts to review the Nigerian Constitution has become an integral feature of the activities of the National Assembly since 1999, as a way of sharing with members of the public primary legislative functions.
