The recent gathering of some ill informed farmers in Kano did not satisfy the dictates of the provision of AFAN constitution regarding the convening of the General Assembly of Farmers (GAF).
GAF, General Assembly of Farmers, according to the AFAN constitution: ARTICLE 8: Subsections A General Assembly of farmers shall be convened annually to ascertain the performance of the association.
8.2.2 Members of the BOT must be present, 8.2.3 Members of the National Executive Council of the Association, 8.2.3 Secretary, Treasurer and three other principal officers of each member Association, 8.2.5 Secretary, Treasurer and three other principal officers of each state and FCT branches of AFAN etc. are all required to attend GAF.
The presence of the HMA and the Deputy Governor of Kano State are not provided for in ARTICLE 8.
The meeting in Kano between the 8th and 10th of April,2021 was merely convened to celebrate the new 18-year Old bride of the HMA, Alhaji Mohammed Sabo Nanono.
Anyone who transacts AFAN business with Faruk Rabi’u Mudi and his group is at their own peril because they are lawless and their actions are persistently contemptuous to the suit they filed in the Federal High Court, Abuja.
