Dangyatum emerges as Speaker of 8th Jigawa Assembly


The member representing Miga Constituency, Hon. Haruna Aliyu Dangyatum, has emerged as the Speaker of the 8th Jigawa State House of Assembly, while Honorable Sani Isya Gumel is the Deputy Speaker.

The new Speaker was nominated by Hon. Hamza Adamu Ibrahim, member representing the Malam-madori constituency.

Twenty-nine state Assembly members unanimously endorsed and approved the speaker and his deputy after their nomination.

The members were inaugurated following their oath of allegiance.

Saga Gist reported that residents in Jigawa state have on Tuesday staged a protest against an alleged plan by the party chieftains to impose the former speaker Idrith Garba Kareka as speaker of the 8th Assembly in the state.

The protest informed the members of the need for internal cohesion to prevail in their quest for new leadership.

They advised the members-elect to resist any temptation, intimidation, and coercion by external forces to undermine the process.
