ADC wants end to Zam­fara leg­isla­tive/ex­ec­u­tive feud

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Shehu Umar,Gusau

The African Demo­cratic Congress (ADC), in Zam­fara State, has called on the feuding leg­isla­tive and ex­ec­u­tive arms of govern­ment in the state to end the cri­sis be­tween them.

Speak­ing with Daily Trust in Gusau, the state cap­i­tal, Al­haji Badamasi Bello, the ADC chair­man in the state, threat­ened to take ac­tion against the two war­ring sides if they con­tin­ued to engi­neer cri­sis.

Bello, who said that both the leg­is­la­ture and the ex­ec­u­tive owed a lot of re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to the cit­i­zens of the state, added that they were not elected to pur­sue self­ish in­ter­ests.

“They should not do any­thing that will dis­rupt the peace­ful po­lit­i­cal at­mos­phere in the state,” he said. “Let them face gov­er­nance. Why should they be cre­at­ing un­nec­es­sary po­lit­i­cal ten­sion in the state?”

The party, which ex­pressed its readi­ness to of­fer cred­i­ble op­po­si­tion to bring about the needed change in gov­er­nance, ad­vised elec­torate against al­ways vot­ing for can­di­dates fielded by a rul­ing party.

The ADC said that the vot­ers stood the risk of elect­ing bad lead­ers and rep­re­sen­ta­tives if they re­fused to change their at­ti­tude.
