BREAKING: Kaduna Lawmakers Elect New Deputy Speaker


Members of the Kaduna State House of Assembly have elected a new Deputy Speaker.

This was sequel to the defection of the erstwhile Deputy Speaker, John Audu-Kwaturu (Kachia constituency), from the ruling All Progressives Congress to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

The Speaker, Aminu Abdullahi Shaghali, had dismissed the reasons adduced by John Audu-Kwaturu and another defecting lawmaker, Junaidu Yakubu (Kudan constituency), saying they were not tenable since there was no crisis or rancour in APC at both the state and the national levels.

He ruled that the two lawmakers must vacate their seats.

Consequently, the lawmaker representing Makera Constituency, Dahiru Liman, nominated Hon. Nuhu Goroh Shadalafiya (Kagarko Constituency) as the new Deputy Speaker, and Hon. Ahmed Mohammed of Zaria Kewaye Constituency seconded the motion.

The new Deputy Speaker, Nuhu Goroh Shadalafiya, until now, was Chairman, House Committee on Information.

He was immediately sworn in as the new Deputy Speaker.
