Zamfara Assembly approves Gov. Yari's request for 3 Special Advisers

24 June 2015, 17:07

Gusau - The Zamfara House of Assembly on Tuesday approved a request by Gov. Abdulaziz Yari to appoint three Special Advisers.

The request letter was sent to the house through the Office of the Acting Secretary to the State Government and received by the Clerk of the House, Alhaji Bayaro Anka.

The governor said the request had become necessary so that the appointees could assist him in running the affairs of the state before the formation of a new cabinet.

The letter was read by the clerk at the plenary of the assembly in Gusau.

Alhaji Sunusi Rikiji, the Speaker of the assembly, threw the matter to the floor of the house for deliberations.

Moving the motion on the matter, the Leader of the House, Alhaji Isa Abdulmumin, said the letter seeking the approval was constitutional and in line with the responsibility of the house.

Abdulmumin, therefore, appealed to the house to accept the request and permit the governor to appoint the Special Advisers.

Seconding the motion, the member representing Kaura-Namoda South, Alhaji Lawali Dogon-Kade, urged members to adopt the motion to ensure effective government activities before the formation of a new cabinet.

The house, in a unanimous decision, later adopted the motion.

At the same sitting, the assembly also adopted a new sitting calendar and standing rules for the fifth assembly in the state.
