All is now set for a member representing Makoda Constituency, Hamisu Chidari, to be elected new Speaker, Kano State House of Assembly.

The decision to elect Mr Chidari at Tuesday plenary followed the sudden resignation of the Abdulaziz Gafasa alongside his deputy and majority leader.

DAILY NIGERIAN also reliably gathered that the house will elect Zubairu Hamza Masu, a member representing Sumaila, as deputy speaker.

During the plenary, the members will also elect Labaran Madari, a member representing Warawa Constituency, as the new Majority Leader.


DAILY NIGERIAN reliably gathered that in the wee hours of the night, 35 out of 40 members of the Assembly appended their signatures to remove the Speaker and the House Leader.

Although the Speaker and the House Leader did not give reasons for their resignation in their hand-written letters circulated on social media, this newspaper learnt they honourably resigned after getting wind of a plan to impeach them at Tuesday’s plenary.

A member of the House who spoke to DAILY NIGERIAN on the condition anonymity said the duo is only serving the interest of the governor not the members.

“We moved against them for their lack of capacity to negotiate the welfare of the House before the governor. In the last 10 months members have not received constituency project payments, and a lot of our entitlements are pending. Even the staff outfit allowance has also not been paid for a year,” he said.
