KADUNA, North-West, Nigeria – A group under the aegis of Global Community Prime Initiative, (GCPI), has expressed dismay over vacant Zangon Kataf Constituency seat at the Kaduna State House of Assembly, (KDHA) at the wake of the suspended Member representing the constituency.
In view of this, the group has called for the House to declare the status of the constituency.
The group stated this in a letter dated July 6, 2018, signed by the Executive Director/Founder, Abdiel Kude, and made available to the media.
According to Kude, GCPI was mandated by the Zangon Kataf Legislative Constituency Forum to make the inquiry and feedback, adding that the Forum wanted to know whether KDHA directed a temporary representation for the Constituency in the House so as not to allow a gap in representation and participation of the Constituency as a whole regarding the structures and processes of the House.
“Participants in the Zangon Kataf Legislative Constituency Consultative Forum were drawn from the six electoral wards that make up the Constituency which included representatives from the All People’s Congress (APC), People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Action Democratic Party (ADP).
“The Consultative Forum was initiated and facilitated by Global Community Prime Initiative in collaboration with community actors.

“All Legislators that have previously represented the Constituency were invited to the forum. These included Hon. Aliyu Wakili, Hon. Matthew Gwaza, Honourable Esther Abba and the current Member Hon. Danladi K. Angulu. Of these, Hons. Matthew Gwaza and Danladi K. Angulu were in attendance.

“How does the suspension of the Member representing the Constituency affect the Constituency as an entity of the democratic structure of Nigeria and Kaduna State? Seeing that the Honourable Member representing the Constituency is presently under suspension by a decision of the 8th Assembly of KDHA, What provisions are there to cater for the participation of the Constituency in the Structures and Processes of the KDHA?
“The Consultative Forum of the Zangon Kataf Legislative Constituency further indicated its willingness to collaborate and partner with KDHA to build synergy and seek approaches to identify possible challenges and addressing them in order to resolve the situation.
“The Zangon Kataf Legislative Constituency Forum considered what possible strategies and approaches could be utilised to bring the concern of the constituents to the Kaduna State House of Assembly (KDHA) and to seek ways to resolve whatever has brought about the constituency being cut off from participating in the structures and processes of KDHA.

“After a lengthy deliberation with contributions from all quarters represented, the Consultative Forum mandated Global Community Prime Initiative (GCPI) to write on the Constituency’s behalf to KDHA and to inquire.”
