Bauchi State House of Assembly has passed a new bill to reverse an existing law granting tribunal the mandate to investigate and retrieve stolen funds and properties by politicians, government officials and other individuals.
The new bill, which scaled through first, second and third reading in one day without objection, is coming in less than two weeks to the end of the current administration.
Hon. Abdullahi Abdulkadir, Deputy Majority Leader of the House, moved the motion for the bill while it was seconded by Sale Nabayi, member representing Ganjuwa west and Magaji Inuwa of Jama’are constituency.
Kawuwa Damina, Speaker of the Assembly, said that only 13 of 31 members of the House were present at the sitting while adding that none of them objected to the passage of the bill.
He also said he would ensure that the Governor approves the bill into law and it is strictly implemented.
