Bauchi Assembly passes bill to stop loot recovery, begs Gov Abubakar to sign
Bauchi State House of Assembly on Wednesday passed the bill for an act to repeal the State Public Property and funds recovery tribunal of 2017. The motion for the bill was moved by Deputy Majority Leader Hon. Abdullahi Abdulkadir representing Bura Constituency. The motion was seconded by Sale Nabayi representing Ganjuwa west and Magaji Inuwa of Jama’are constituency respectively.
The law was put in place to serve as deterrence to whosoever misappropriated the funds of the citizens but since the governor failed to secure his second term in office. He decided to connive with his cronies to assemble in the house by 9am today Wednesday instead of 10:00 am to repeal the bill. The second bill which has to do with creation of additional districts, villages and hamlet’s was also smuggled in by his cronies in the House and had passed the first, second and third reading to become law without the consent of the remaining 18 Members of the House. The cronies do it such a way that the bill passes first ,second and third reading to enable them hasten it for the governor to assent it to become a law.
