Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Musa Ab­dul­lahi Kr­ishi

The Speaker of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Yakubu Dog­ara, has ap­pointed Rep Ahmed Babba Kaita to head the com­mit­tee on hous­ing.

Kaita (APC, Katsina) took over from Mustapha Bala Dawaki (APC, Kano), who re­placed Ab­dul­mu­min Jib­rin as chair­man of the ap­pro­pri­a­tion com­mit­tee on Wed­nes­day.

Jib­rin’s re­moval from the ap­pro­pri­a­tion com­mit­tee fol­lowed his in­volve­ment in the con­tro­versy that trailed the 2016 bud­get con­sid­er­a­tion by the Na­tional As­sem­bly, where he re­port­edly al­lo­cated pro­jects worth Nn4.3 bil­lion to his Kiru/Be­beji Fed­eral Con­stituency of Kano State.

Kaita was a staunch sup­porter of the cur­rent House Leader, Femi Gba­jabi­amila, dur­ing the race for the of­fice of speaker last year.
