Kaduna Assembly declares former Deputy Speaker’s seat, another vacant


The Kaduna State House of Assembly on Wednesday declared the seat of its former Deputy Speaker, Mr John Audu-Kwaturu and the seat occupied by the member representing Kudan constituency, Alhaji Junaidu Yakubu, who defected to the PDP, vacant.

DAILY POST had reported that Audu-Kwaturu, a week ago announced his resignation from the position of the Deputy Speaker.

But declaring their seats vacant at plenary, the Speaker, Aminu Shagali said the defection of the lawmakers had no basis as the APC in the state was not in any crisis.

According to him, the action of the Assembly is in line with the provision of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the lawmakers unanimously elected Mr Nuhu Shadalafiya, erstwhile Chairman, House Committee on Information, as the new Deputy Speaker.
