After the swearing-in, Gov Yusuf assigned portfolios to the new state executive cabinet members

The portfolio, according to Solacebase, are as follows:

1- Mustapha Rabiu Kwankwaso – Youth and Sport

2- Abduljabbar Garko – Land and Survey

3- Shehu Aliyu Yarmedi – Special Duties

4- Adamu Aliyu Kibiya – Commerce and Industry

According to Daily Trust, the appointment of Kwankwaso’s son has elicited reactions among some supporters of the Kwankwasiyya movement who faulted the move.

Speaking, one of them who is an appointee in the government and asked not to be mentioned said, “This is not good at all for our government and the politics at all.

“The governor has deeply involved his family members into the government and Oga (Kwankwaso) too is bringing his own son. It’s not good at all.

“My biggest fear is that they will embarrass the government and themselves. This is what we were accusing the previous government of and we are now doing the worst.”

Another supporter, who craved anonymity, said, “If this is really true, then I cannot even go into my neighbourhood today because I will have to close my ears in shame. It’s too early.

“What is this? Are they not afraid of public bashing at all? Our government cannot stand a complete month or two without anything that will put it out there on the public spot? It’s honestly disappointing.”
