The Zamfara House of Assembly has passed 40 bills in three years, the Speaker, Nasiru Magarya has said.

Mr Magarya said this when he spoke with newsmen in Gusau on Wednesday.

“In the last three years, the sixth assembly in the state under my stewardship recorded tremendous achievements.

“Part of the achievements is passing of over 40 bills and the majority of them were assented to by Governor Bello Matawalle.

“All the bills were people’s oriented and no single bill passed by the house was on personal interest.

“All our bills were passed after they have undergone various legislative processes, especially public hearing,’’ he said.
