Kaduna gets new speaker, deputy, as Shagali resigns

Yusuf Ibrahim Zailani has been elected as the new Kaduna Speaker.

His election came barely an hour after Abdullahi Shagali resigned as Speaker.

Zailani, who represents Igabi West Constituency in the Assembly, was the Deputy Speaker of the Assembly until his election to lead the House on Tuesday.

Zailani is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Also, Mukhatar Isa Hazo, representing Bassawa Constituency has been elected as the new Deputy Speaker.

Both of them have been sworn-in by the Clark of the Assembly.

The former Speaker, Shagali who represents Sabon-Gari Constituency in the Assembly, officially submitted his resignation letter to clerk of the House Tuesday morning.

The resignation came amid alleged plans by some members of the assembly to impeach him.
