The state Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje, inaugurating the committee in Kano said the centre
was established to immortalise the late elder statesman for his immense contributions
to political and democratic developments in the country.
Gov Ganduje described late diplomat as a rare gentleman,
intelligent and highly disciplined individual.
He mandated the committee to within eight weeks “analyse function
and long term programmes of the center,
to determine appropriate name and location for the center
and provide appropriate frame work among others.”
Meanwhile, other members of the 15-man committee include Justice Mamman Nasir, Alhaji Bashir Tofa,
Prof. Mustapha Isa Ahmad, Prof. Shehu Musa Alhaji, Prof. Sule Bello and Prof. Dahiru Yahaya.
The others are Engr. Mansur Ahmed, Tajuddeen Dantata, Arc. Ibrahim Haruna,
Alhaji Muhtari Hassan, Alhaji Muhtari Maitama and representative of Kano Emirate Council.
It would be recalled that the state government had renamed
its university to Yusuf Maitama Sule University
and the street where his residence is located to honour the deceased.
