The Kano State House of Assembly on Thursday confirmed the appointment of Justice Dije Aboki as the substantive Chief Judge of the state.
The confirmation of Aboki as the first female Chief Judge followed the consideration of a letter forwarded to the Assembly by Governor Abba Yusuf and read by the Speaker, Ismail Falgore, during the plenary.
Recall that former governor Abdullahi Ganduje had in March, sworn in Justice Aboki as acting Chief Judge of the state.
Also, the state Assembly confirmed three more commissioner-nominees sent by the governor.
The nominees screened are Ibrahim Fagge, Ibrahim Namadi and Amina Abdullahi -Sani.
In his remark after the confirmation, Falgore asked the cleared nominees to justify the appointment by being dedicated to their duties when assigned portfolios.
He urged them to complement the efforts of the governor in the development of the state.
