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.

His word: “The center will also be utilized for research and scholarly discourse
for the advancement of politics and democratic governance,” he said.

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.”

Responding, Jega assured that the committee would undertake the assignment diligently.
