Kano Makes History As First Female Substantive Chief Judge Was Sworn-in

Abba Kabir Yusuf, the governor of Kano State, oversaw the swearing-in of Justice Dije Abdu Aboki as the state’s substantive Chief Judge on Monday.
Justice Aboki is the first female substantive Chief Judge of Kano State.
Gov. Yusuf expressed his excitement at the development and his delight at having presided over the oath-taking ceremony. He further stated that he is honored to have contributed to making history.
“I’m glad to have presided over the oath-taking ceremony of Justice Dije Abdu Aboki as the first female substantive Chief Judge of Kano State.
“History has been made today, and I am proud to be very well part of it,” the Governor tweeted.
Recall that during his time in office as governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje approved the appointment of Justice Dije Aboki to serve as the state’s acting chief judge.
Following Justice Nura Sagir’s retirement as Chief Judge, Aboki was appointed.
Prior to her appointment, Justice Aboki presided over the state High Court since 2006.
Aboki became the first female Chief Judge in the state after the substantive appointment was later accepted by the Kano State House of Assembly.
The development comes after the assembly’s examination of a letter that Kano State Governor Abba Kabir-Yusuf forwarded to them and was read aloud in plenary by Speaker Ismail Falgore.
