A statement issued by its spokesman Nasiru Biyabiki said the formation of the committees was announced by the speaker, Bilyaminu Moriki, at Wednesday’s plenary, following a motion moved for the adoption of the committees by the majority leader, Bello Mazawaje.

Mr Mazawaje called on the lawmakers to consider the adoption of the composition of the committees.

According to him, the formation of the committees is in accordance with sections 103 (1), (2) and (3) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and Order VIII, Rule 4 (a), (b) and (c) of the Zamfara State House of Assembly Standing Orders, 2012.

After unanimous approval of the motion, the lawmakers pledged to work towards achieving the aims and objectives of the committees.

While adopting the committees, the speaker said the parliament would ensure a successful people-oriented legislature.

“We will continue to observe our fundamental responsibilities in the lawmaking process, representation and oversight assignments. I am calling on the committee chairmen and members to justify the confidence reposed on them,” Mr Moriki stated. “You have to work hand-in-hand with your secretaries and relevant MDAs for you to succeed in your respective assignments.”
