Faces, prospects and challenges for 5 members ‘fighting’ to become Katsina Assembly Speaker

5 people who may be the next Speaker, Katsina House of Assembly

All things being equal and baring any unforeseen circumstances, the Honorable members, Katsina State House of Assembly are going to elect their new Speaker as soon as the House resumes its sitting.

This became necessary because the current speaker, Rt. Hon. Abubakar Yahaya Kusada will cease to occupy his position as soon as his seat is announced vacant following his victory at the just concluded bye-election in Kankia/Kusada/Ingawa House of Representative constituency.

For equity, it is believed that Daura zone will retain the seat.

Katsina Post gathered some of the Honorable members that may emerge the Speaker of the House.

1. Hon. Nasir Yahaya (Daura)

Hon. Nasir Yahaya, member representing Daura is one of the leading contenders for the third highest elective position in the state.

He is said to be very close to the outgoing Speaker and maintains good relationship with members.

But analysts are saying that being him from same Local Government with President Buhari may work against him.

2. Hon. Tasi’u Musa (Zango)

Hon. Nasir Yahaya is also believed to be vigorously campaigning to be the Katsina State House of Assembly next speaker.

He is relatively older than many of the members and his age is believed to work in favor of him.

It was also rumored that the seat of the speakership has been micro-zoned to the Zango/Baure Federal constituency to console Hon. Nasir Zangon Daura who lost to Senator Ahmad Babba Kaita in the APC senatorial primary election for the Senate Bye-election earlier.

3. Surajo Sani Manzo (Sandamu)

Surajo Sani

Hon. Surajo is also reported to be nursing the ambition of becoming the State Speaker. He is believed to have high profile government officials gunning for him.

4. Hon. Sani Lawal (Baure)

Hon. Sani Lawal from Baure is also believed to be campaigning for the state’s third highest elective position.

5. Rt. Hon. Aliyu Sabi’u Muduru (Mani)

Rt. Hon. Aliyu Sabi’u Muduru is believed to be hoping to come back as the speaker of Katsina state House of Assembly.

It could be recalled that Hon. Aliyu Sabi’u was impeached as speaker.

But political observers are of the opinion that he may gather enough sympathy and support from within and outside the House of Assembly to stage a come back.
