2012: Constitution of LGAs caretaker committees is illegal – Katsina APC chieftain
Retro: APC chieftain dragged Katsina Governor to court over LGAs caretaker committees
As the Katsina State is still basking in the euphoric political mood following the nomination of local government caretakers by Governor Aminu Bello Masari, we looked down the path of history as to what exactly happened when the same thing happened under the previous administration of PDP in the state.
Internet they say, never forget ; Below is a news as carried by one of the National dailies in 2012 following the constitution of caretaker committee members in the state:
The member representing Kankia/Kusada federal constituency at the House of Representatives, Ahmed Babba Kaita (CPC) had in 2012 instituted a legal action against the then Katsina State Governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Shema over the constitution of Local Government Caretaker Committees.
Kaita approached a federal high court where he prayed the court to declare the constitution of local government caretaker committee as a nullity and order for the conduct of election at the council areas.
Kaita had accused Governor Shema of violating the constitution by appointing local government caretaker committees, insisting that the appointment was done to siphon public funds through state and local government joint account.
Honourable Ahmad Babba Kaita is now contesting in the coming Daura Senatorial zone seat bye-election slated to hold on 11th of August, 2018.
