Ex-Gov Tambuwal Honours Sokoto Judicial Commission Of Enquiry’s Invite

Immediate-past governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has honoured the invitation of the State Judicial Commission of Inquiry investigating some of the actions taken by his administration during his reign as governor of the State between 2015 and 2023.

However, the sitting of the panel could not hold as scheduled on Saturday.

Tambuwal, who arrived at the venue of the commission’s sitting alongside some of his defunct cabinet members, could not give account of his stewardship before the panel as he was asked to come back on another date, which will be communicated to him.

Recall that the incumbent state governor, Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto, upon assumption of office in May 2023, had set up the Judicial Commission of Inquiry to investigate last-minute actions taken by his predecessor.

However, speaking to journalists thereafter, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives now Senator representing Sokoto South Senatorial District of the State said: “Earlier today, I appeared before the Justice Mu’azu Abdulkadir Pindiga-led Sokoto State Judicial Commission of Inquiry instituted by my successor, H.E Ahmad Aliyu Sokoto.

“I was accompanied by my legal team and some officials of my administration including the ex-SSG, Muhammad Mainasara Ahmad, ex-Chief of Staff, Muktar Magori, ex-Attorney General, and Commissioner of Justice, Dr. Sulaiman Usman, SAN, among others.

“Our track record of integrity in public service speaks for us always.

“In leading the younger generation, we must instil in them utmost respect for the rule of law and constituted authorities.

“As citizens, we should realise that no one, no matter how highly placed, should be above the laws of the land, most specifically the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“This, amongst other things, brings out the beauty in democracy.

“I wish the Commission the very best in its sitting.”
