Ganduje Resolves Kano Assembly Crisis

Ganduje, Buhari

Kano – Peace has returned to the Kano State House of Assembly following the intervention of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje in the crisis between the speaker and some aggrieved members.

Muhammad Garba, the state Commissioner for Information, Youth and Culture, in a statement, said that Ganduje reconciled the two warring factions at a meeting held at the Government House on Wednesday.

According to him, the meeting was held with the representatives of the parties, adding that the intervention of the governor was in the interest of peace and democratic development of the state.

He further revealed that following the reconciliation which brought the crisis to an end, the Assembly would reopen on Thursday (today) to further consolidate the resolutions reached at the meeting.

It will be recalled that the state House of Assembly was thrown into crisis following the impeachment move made by 24 out of the 40 members to oust the speaker, a situation that resulted to the sealing off of the complex by security operatives.

The ensuing crisis also resulted to the removal of Chief Whip, Labaran Madari, who is representing Warawa Constituency and the Deputy Majority Leader, Muhammad  Butu-butu, representing Rimin Gado/Tofa Constituency by the 24 lawmakers.

The members, however, replaced the aforementioned with Abdullahi Yaryasa, representing Tudunwada Constituency and  Ayuba  Durum, representing Kabo Constituency, as Chief Whip and Deputy Majority Leader, respectively.
