According to Abbas, Reps will work to give traditional rulers constitutional roles.



The Green Chamber would endeavor to ensure that traditional rulers have constitutional roles, according to House of Representatives Speaker Abbas Tajudeen, who made the announcement on Saturday.

According to Abbas, the crucial functions that traditional rulers perform in society have made this necessary.


When the Speaker made his first trip to Zaria in Kaduna State, he spoke at the palace of the Emir of Zazzau, Nuhu Bamalli.

Abbas, who goes by the traditional name Iyan Zazzau, is now serving as the fourth representative for the Zaria Federal Constituency.


Abbas emphasized the value of traditional institutions during his visit to the emir’s palace and asked for their inclusion in the 1999 Constitution.

“Today, I want to promise something to you. According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Krishi, the Speaker stated, “I remember around three years ago when we did zonal hearings on constitutional reform, you made suggestions regarding the necessity for traditional rulers to have constitutional functions.


“Let me reassure you that we now have the chance. We will review that plan again so that our traditional leaders will have recognized constitutional positions, with me serving as the Speaker. I am your son.

“We’re also here to enlist the help of all the traditional institutions in the North and around the nation. We also want your guidance on how to be successful leaders. Please be frank with us when we make mistakes. I ask for the Zazzau Emir’s and the Emirate’s citizens’ support.


In his statement, the emir claimed that most politicians abandon established institutions as soon as they win elections.

Politicians worry that we want to create a second level of government. However, that is untrue. At several levels, we have presented our argument. “Despite our meetings with the Senate President, the then-Speaker, and the then-Chief of Staff to the President, nothing was done about the bill,” Emir Bamalli continued.


The Emir urged the legislators to “dust the bill and work on it once more,” stressing that “all we want is for the bill to be passed without opposition. We anticipate the Legislature will examine this right away.
