From Maiharaji Altine, Gusau

The Zamfara state House of Assembly has debunked media reports that, it has suspended its sittings until the father of the Speaker who was abducted by bandits was rescued.

In a statement, the Director General press affairs  and Public Relations of the House, Malam Mustafa Jafaru Kaura said that the House has never deliberated on the abduction of the speaker’s father in the chamber of the House not to talk of or suspending its sittings.

The statement reads, “The attention of the Zamfara State House of Assembly has been drawn to a fictitious story carried today Teusday 24th August 2021 by some sections of conventional media both print and electronics that, the state House of Assembly has suspended plenaries until the speaker’s father and five others regained their freedom from the hands of their kidnappers,”. 

“To put the records stress, the State House of Assembly under the leadership of Speaker  Nasiru Mu’azu Magarya has never since the adoption saga sat and deliberated on this issue, left alone take any decision that has to do with the kidnap of the Speaker’s father”.

“There was no time when the lawmakers met at the hallow chamber of the Assembly and took this hasty decision as claimed by some sections of the media”.

“The House sat sometime on 23rd July this year and resolved to have a break to allow Hon members to go back to their respective constituencies to effectively monitor the ungoing revalidation of APC membership card exercise across the state which allowed them to suspend plenaries even before the adoption saga” 

“Regular committee sittings and oversight functions are still going on  in the House right now”.

“The State House of Assembly under the able leadership of the speaker Rt Hon Nasiru Mu’azu Magarya expressed in unequivocal terms its total displeasure and disappointment with the rare display of unprofessionalism and unethical conduct of some  media Houses in the country  that always go to the press without substantiating their facts” .

 “The House also urged the general public to disregard such stories as untrue, bears, baseless and unfounded that did not reflect the true situation of things at the state legislative arm of government”.
