In Zamfara State, the constituents of Kaura Namoda and Birnin Magaji have begun gathering signatures from registered voters to launch the recall process of their National Assembly representative, Aminu Sani Jaji.

This is in accordance with the provisions of Section 69 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended.

The decision to recall the lawmaker follows the suspension of Jaji, a member of House of Representatives representing Kaura Namoda/Birnin Magaji Federal Constituency, by the Birnin Magaji Ward Executive of the All Progressives Congress, APC, which was upheld by the Birnin Magaji Local Government Area Executive and ratified by the APC State Working Committee, Zamfara State.

The constituents have concluded plans to address a formal letter to the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Gusau, Zamfara State, and the Electoral officers for Kaura Namoda and Birnin Magaji local government areas, requesting the Commission to provide recall forms for the removal of the lawmaker from the lower chamber.

They accused the lawmaker of clueless representation in the Federal House of Representatives.

A statement signed by Bello Mahmud Birnin Magaji, Chairman, and Comrade Mustapha Ibrahi, Secretary, on behalf of the constituents, read, “Our two Local Government Areas are among the areas mostly affected by frequent attacks of armed bandits, many people have been killed, kidnapped for ransom, cattle rustled, houses and property worth millions of Naira burnt down, while many people are internally displaced from their communities in Kaura Namoda Local Government Area, Sakajiki, Kasuwar Daji, Rututu, Kurya Madaro, Dogon Kade, Kungurki, Sabon Garin, Kiyawa, Danisa and in Birnin Magaji Local Government Area, respectively.

“Also many people are kidnapped for ransom, houses, shops were burnt down, many killed, many others are displaced from their communities and towns in Gora, Chigama, Shamushalle, Billashe, Modomawa, Nasarawa Mailayi, Sabon Birnin Danalli and Birnin Magaji town.

“Hon. Jaji has never thought it appropriate to visit the internally displaced persons to sympathise with them let alone providing relief materials to alleviate their sufferings.

“Non-fulfillment of the electoral promises and sundry behaviours unbecoming of a lawmaker.

“Factionalisation of the party executives, supporting opponents of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in demarketing his policies and administration in the North.

“The constituents note with dismay the performance of the lawmaker in the Federal House of Representatives is below expectation. He failed woefully in providing good representation to the good people of the constituency.

“Jaji lacks the political sagacity and tenacity of purpose required of a lawmaker representing a state under bandits’ siege.

“We call on all lovers of democracy, good governance, security and effective representation in the National Assembly to come out en masse and endorse the recall of Hon. Aminu Jaji from the House of Representatives.

“It is a patriotic duty and a giant step forward in rescuing our constituency from further slide to insecurity, anarchy, lawlessness, confusion, poverty and underdevelopment.

“We made a mistake by electing Hon. Jaji who uses our mandate to work against his constituency and APC at all levels while hobnobbing with the ruling PDP in the state where he has concluded plan to defect after destabilising our great party.

“As democrats and grassroots politicians, we shall resist reactionary forces bent on undermining our constituency.

“Hon. Jaji must be recalled from the House of Representatives to pave way for a competent, capable, reliable, pragmatic, visionary, resourceful and compassionate lawmaker. Join us to recall him now.”
