10th Assembly Will Be Challenging To Manage — Kano Rep

Hon. Sani Umar Bala, a member representing Tsanyawa/Kunchi Federal Constituency of Kano State has opined that the just inaugurated 10th House of Representatives will be difficult to manage.

Bala who spoke on Thursday said that the Green Chamber of the National Assembly has witnessed a drastic reduction in the number of old and experienced members which he said would make it the most difficult to manage.

It would be recalled that the 10th House of Representatives was inaugurated on Tuesday,  June 13 following the election of it’s leadership.

Speaking with newsmen, he said, “We have over 70 per cent turnover. Only about 30 per cent of old members returned to the 10th house which is a big challenge. It is now dominated by new members who have to have time to learn and blend.


“That notwithstanding, the house has to move on. But we have to be up and doing. While the new members catch up, the returning members have to deploy everything to see that their new colleagues are properly absorbed for legislative business overtime.

“That observation prepared us when we grew up in the organisation and we are happy for it. What I am saying in essence is that, I know our young colleagues are educated with some having Phds.

“However, coming to the parliament is a different ballgame. While your qualifications and experience in your fields are appreciated, in the parliament, you must learn a new thing different from what you already have. It is a new learning process.”

However, Hon. Bala, called on the new and returning members of the house to cooperate and work together, saying that would make it more robust and productive to meet the yearnings of Nigerians.
