The Speaker, Katsina State House of Assembly, Alhaji Abubakar Kusada, has attributed the existing cordial working relationship between executive and legislative arms of government in the state to the transparent disposition of Gov. Aminu Masari.
Kusada (APC), said this in an interview with newsmen in Daura on Thursday.
He said Masari has upheld the country’s and APC constitutions in the discharge of his official functions, noting that the governor carried the remaining arms of government along.
Kusada reiterated the commitment and determination of the APC-led administration at the federal, state and local government levels in transforming the nation as well as building a brighter and promising future for the citizens.
He said Masari’s administration has succeeded in instilling discipline and accountability in the state civil service, stressing “we (Katsina State Government) also adhere strictly to the nation’s procurement law’’.
The speaker pledged that the House would continue to enact laws that would accelerate the socio-economic development of the state.
“We (legislators) would not relent in the discharge of our constitutional mandate,’’ said Kusada.
He lauded the efforts of federal government in repositioning the nation through transparent and accountable leadership, stressing that President Muhammadu Buhari deserves commendation over his anti-corruption crusade, war against insecurity and rejuvenation of the economy.
He noted that the president has restored hope and confidence among Nigerians, saying “Nigerians are now highly respected and regarded even at the international community due to the positive change in leadership of the country’’.
Kusada was appointed Speaker last year following the removal of his predecessor, Alhaji Sabiu Muduru.
