Gawuna, who is the current Commissioner for Agriculture and a two-term Nasarawa Local Govt Chairman, is expected to be sworn in today (Tuesday).

His nomination comes barely two months after the resignation of the former Deputy Governor Prof. Hafiz Abubakar.

The former deputy governor tendered his resignation letter on August 5, 2018, following claims of disrespect to his office and unjust treatment by the governor.
