The new speaker, Rt. Hon Abdulazeez Garba Gafasa, Ajingi lawmaker who once ruled the House in 6th Assembly for four consecutive, hassle-free years, during the second tenure of Ex-governor Mal. Ibrahim Shekarau.
Gafasa, the tall, baritone voice and dark shining- skinned legislature, was once a majority leader in the 8th assembly, and one among the two longest-serving lawmakers in Kano state House of assembly.
Rt. Hon Gafasa, who by the end of 2O23, Gafasa will clock close to twenty-years serving Kano as State lawmaker.
Undoubtedly, Gafasa is the second luckiest state lawmaker occupy the third most prestigious juicy throne for the second time in the history of Kano legislative House.
But, it is not yet clear on how and what facilitates the destiny of Rt. Hon Abdulazeez Garba Gafasa outsmarted the other contenders to become the Speaker of the 9th assembly of Kano State.
The Deputy Speaker, Engr. Hamisu Ibrahim Chidari. The Makoda lawmaker, who preferred to maintain the status quo of firmly grabbing the Deputy Speakership throne for the fourth time.
Chidari, a silent and personable lawmaker, who undeniably possessed gentlemanly disposition as far as political interaction is concern.
Presently, it is hard to enumerate two most influential members in Kano assembly, without mentioning Engr. Chidari falling into the first or second category.
He is very much influential member, that knows the value of humanity, who also observe and rarely speaks without definite motive.
Hon. Chidari who is presently the new-elected deputy speaker was for long known to acquire a great deal of influence in steering the assembly affairs.
Hon. Labaran Abdul Madari, the newly elected majority for the first time in his twelve years, going for the additional tenure of four years in Kano state House of Assembly.
Abdul Madari, the stout lawmaker representing Warawa constituency, who is undeniably tagged as the most influential and silently powerful member whose every member in the House crave for his assistance as far as underground political manoeuvring within the House is concern.
His sudden rise to fame was on July 2O17 when he was reportedly been among the forefront lawmakers whose pressure made the former Speaker Rurum to resigned for been allegedly ensnared in a financial scandal.
And more, he played a vital role with the help of fellow colleagues towards installing Hon. Ata to replaced Hon Rurum.
Hon Abdul Madari was equally among the closest confidant of the former Speaker, Ata at the helm of power, but was almost among the last member who succumbed and gave the final vote which abruptly ended Ata’s Speakership life span.on 3Oth July, 2O18, and brought Rurum back to his earlier position after more than a year sitting as an ordinary floor member.
Unarguably, Hon. Madari’s political orientation knows no bound when it comes to the issue of permanents interest, closeness or permanent friends is outrightly immaterial as far as the end will justify the means.
The 9th assembly of the Kano Legislative House will potentially be the hotspots of vibrant politicking whereby the dramas of maintaining the bond of permanent interest will dominate centre stage by the powerful and influential lawmakers.
