Kano Assembly Chief Whip Removed For Recognising Kwankwaso As State APC Leader

Kano-House of AssemblyThe political battle of supremacy between former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso and his successor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has claimed its first casualty in the person of the Chief Whip of the Kano State House of Assembly, Zubairu Mamuda.
Hon. Mamuda was removed on Thursday for recognizing Kwankwaso, who is the currently the senator representing Kano Central, as the state leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Mr. Mamuda represents Madobi constituency, where the former governor hails from.
The impeachment followed a motion moved by a member representing Nassarawa Local Government Area, Ibrahim Gama, on the floor of the house.
Mr. Gama, alias Lugard, posited that the removal of the chief whip had become imperative in view of the legislator’s disloyalty to Governor Ganduje.
The house unanimously adopted the motion and immediately removed Mr. Mamuda, who was replaced with Labaran Madari, a member representing Warawa constituency.
It would be recalled that 36 out of 40 members of the house, on Tuesday, visited the governor, where they pledged allegiance to him, deepening the political divide between Mr. Ganduje and his predecessor.
