“The legislators should subordinate their advantages to the welfare of the general population of Kano. Bypassing the real benefits and medicinal excursions abroad bill, the legislators have perpetually ‘purchased at their deals,’ and disregarded their sacred trust.

“This exposed want by the legislators of the Kano State House of Assembly to pass a bill to grant to themselves life benefits, remote restorative treks and fresh out of the box new vehicles at regular intervals is abusive and disregards the commitment of fairness to the general population of Kano they are chosen to serve and the goals of guardian government.

The bill, proposed by Baffa Baba Dangundi, is a typical example of redirection of open assets to private purposes.

The motivation behind any government– whether administrative or state—is to advance the enthusiasm of the whole society, for this situation, the general population of Kano, and not the interests and welfare of a couple in the House of Assembly. The legislators should seek after the joy and flourishing of the Kano individuals with devotion.

“Whenever consented to, the bill would prompt an abuse of trust property and take steps to influence the welfare of the general population of Kano by redirecting open assets from improvement and arrangement of access to quality training, clean water, and social insurance to the individual advantages of individuals from the House of Assembly,” the letter read.

The proposed law gives the managing officers the benefit to win life benefits following the lapse of their residency.

What’s more, the officers would appreciate therapeutic outings once in a year and decision vehicles at regular intervals.

As indicated by the bill, ‘There will be paid benefits to person(s) who held office as speaker and agent speaker equivalent to the payments of a serving speaker and appointee speaker.

The speaker and agent speaker will, on the culmination of their terms, be qualified for a concede of annuity for life by the state.

The bill likewise gives that “there will be accommodated the speaker and the agent speaker a fresh out of the plastic new vehicle to be purchased by the state government like clockwork.

There will be accommodated the speaker and the appointee speaker medicinal costs either home or abroad relying upon the idea of the sickness”.
