The Deputy Speaker of Katsina State House of Assembly, Alhaji Shehu-Dalhatu Tafoki, says the bill to enact the State Local Government Law 2022 has been stalled at a plenary in the parliament.

Tafoki said this while addressing newsmen on Sunday in Katsina.

He said that the bill, which scaled the third reading, was an executive submission to repeal the State Local Government Law Cap.178 of 2000.

According to him, the assembly has directed the House Legal Services Department to resubmit the bill on Jan. 31 for further legislative deliberation.

The deputy speaker said that some members, during the plenary, observed that the bill did not take care of the allowances of ward heads, earlier agreed by the house.

“Therefore, we urged the house to suspend deliberaion on the bill to enable us to study it critically,” the deputy speaker said.
