Daura zone constituents decried delay in Senate by election

People of the Katsina North Senatorial constituency also known simply as Daura zone whom their Senator in person of Late Mustapha Bukar died recently have cried out over the failure of Senate President Bukola Saraki to declare such seats vacant to pave the way for INEC to conduct by-elections.

Other senators who died are but their seats still not declared vacant by the National Assembly leaders are Ali Wakili (APC, Bauchi South)and and a member of the House of Representatives, Buba Jibrin (APC, Lokoja Federal Constituency).

People spoken to by our sources however urged the leadership of the National Assembly to set politics aside and do the needful, saying it was against the letters of the Nigerian Constitution to be denied representation in national discuss.

INEC could only organize by-elections within 90 days subject to receipt of notice of vacancy from the legislature; and in the event the National Assembly remained silent, the seats could continue to remain vacant.

The Chairman of Daura Emirate Development Association (DEDA), Aliyu Bala Daura, appealed to the Senate to communicate to INEC so that the processes for replacement of Senator Bukar could start.

“We are concerned and keenly watching the development and will take a look at what the law says should the period expire and no action is taken,” he said.

On his part, a youth leader, Musa Badamasi Daura, said the zone was deeply concerned because they had no representation in the Senate.

With the apparent silence by the Senate president, the stakeholders should team up and ensure the right thing is done.

In Katsina, we in Daura are out of the bargain. This is the senatorial zone of the president and it has no representation,” he said.
