Sequence to an announcement that suspending the present leadership of Kano Civil Society Forum yesterday, KCSF Board of Trustees affirms the leadership of Ambassador Ibrahim Waiya.
The BOT made this known today after a group of three persons who described themselves as ‘concerned’ members of the Form announced the suspension of the leadership of the Forum.
According to the BOT Secretary, Hamisu Isa Sharifai, there is no such thing as body of ‘Concerned Members’ that can exercise the powers of the Congress (which consists of over one hundred organizations) or the BOT and as such the suspension and announcement should be disregarded by both members and the general public.
He said, under the circumstances the BOT directs that the management team of the KCSF under the leadership of Ibrahim Waiya, should continue to do so, and the constituted Electoral Committee set uuo by the BOT 3 weeks ago should go on with the arrangements for the elections.
“We call on all members who are truly concerned with the progress of the Forum to stand together as a united body, so that the elections can hold in strict compliance with the KCSF Constitution”.
“Let us all remain resolute in pursuing the ideals of justice, good democratic practice and societal progress that brought us together”, he added.
