Members of Zamfara State House of Assembly led by Speaker Nasiru Magarya had screened and confirmed the nomination of Sen. Hassan Nasiha as the new Deputy Governor of Zamfara State.
His screening and confirmation followed the impeachment of the former Deputy Governor Mahadi Aliyu Gusau at the early hours of Wednesday after the seven-man panel of investigation found him guilty of all the charges labelled against him by the members of Zamfara state house of assembly.
Legislators like Nasiru Lawal Bungudu, Shamsu Hassan Basko and Yusuf Alhassan Kanoma who led the debate on the floor of the state house of assembly described the nominee as a grassroot politician and experienced technocrat who has devoted substantial part of his time-serving the state.
“As a former commissioner in various ministries of Zamfara state and one time state Chairman of the people’s Democratic Party under whose leadership I served as the youth leader and now a serving senator of the federal republic of Nigeria the nomination of Sen. Hassan Nasiha is the most deserving one” Yusuf Kanoma added.
The nominee based on request by Yusuf Kanoma was only asked to drop his CV take a vow and leave.
At the end of the plenary, Speaker announced the confirmation of Sen. Hassan Nasiha as the new Deputy Governor of Zamfara State.
