The state commissioner for information, Muhammad Garba, disclosed this on Thursday while briefing journalists on the outcome of the state Executive Council Meeting held at the Government House, Kano.
According to Mr Garba, the decision was part of the government’s policies to rid Kano of illicit substance abuse.
He reaffirmed the administration’s commitment to tackle drug abuse among political leaders.
He said the government would not hesitate to issue necessary disciplinary measures against ”anyone found with the trace of illicit substance including a compulsory recommendation for rehabilitation”.
Some approvals
Mr Garba also announced the council has approved the change in the bill amending the name of the state Entrepreneurial and Skill Acquisition Centre Nill 2019 to Dangote Skills Acquisition Centre 2020.
