Daily Trust - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Muham­mad Gumel 07058835510 Yu­nana Eli­jah, Maiduguri 08032157309 By ob­serv­ing what is go­ing-on in the Na­tional Assem­bly (Se­nate) I am blam­ing Sen. Ah­mad Rufa’i Sani who is rep­re­sent­ing Zam­fara west Sen­a­to­rial dis­trict as the one re­spon­si­ble for the chaos

Self im­peach­ment

I am afraid his Ex­cel­lency the Gover­nor of Ji­gawa State Badaru Abubakar if he fails to watch his steps that would lead him to im­peach­ment be­cause it seems he is work­ing against the APC. Bura Borno not ready for elec­tion

Sir the gov­ern­ment of Borno state is try­ing to fix an elec­tion for the va­cant seat of the de­ceased late Ahamed Zan­nah. But the truth is the peo­ple of Borno cen­tral and Borno state are not ready for any elec­tion now, why be­cause many are still suf­fer­ing from the trauma of Boko Haram. And if elec­tions must hold let all the IDPs be re­lo­cated to their home­towns now that peace has come and the in­sur­gents has been crushed. And with the newly ap­pointed care­taker lo­cal gov­ern­ment chair­men I think and sug­gest that the first pri­or­ity of the newly care­taker chair­men of the af­fected lo­cal gov­ern­ments is to re­lo­cate their peo­ple back home and pro­vide them with shel­ter. And not the usual busi­ness of lodg­ing in a ho­tel and shar­ing the Ghana must go.

Zam­fara’s Sen. Ah­mad Rufa’I Sani

Pop­u­lar­ity not zon­ing at the N/Assem­bly


The crises of the Se­nate arose as a re­sult of ‘wayo’ played by Sen­a­tors

B Saraki and Ek­w­ere­madu. The sen­a­tors took ad­van­tage of the ab­sence of 51 mem­bers of the Se­nate. All the sen­a­tors of the APC were in­vited for a meet­ing with the ex­ec­u­tive of the party and the Pres­i­dent prior to in­au­gu­ra­tion of the house. 51 loyal mem­bers an­swered the call, but 7 of the sen­a­tors de­cided not to hon­our the party.

They there­fore ar­ranged with 50 mem­bers of the PDP to form ma­jor­ity and shared the po­si­tions to them­selves. In­stead of PDP to get noth­ing as was the case with for­mer ad­min­is­tra­tion, where other par­ties got noth­ing from the PDP’s con­trol house.

What I be­lieve should be done is for the cur­rent lead­ers i.e Saraki and Ek­w­ere­madu to step down and al­low the full house to elect their lead­ers. Let them taste their pop­u­lar­ity in a full house. Since the Pres­i­dent says he can work with any leader, the party should stop zon­ing po­si­tions. At the end of the day, pop­u­lar can­di­date will emerge. The house of rep­re­sen­ta­tive should also choose their lead­ers on pop­u­lar­ity only, not by zon­ing any po­si­tion to any area. The Pres­i­dent has the right to over­rule the house.
