Zamfara governor appoints senator as new lieutenant governor

A senator, Hassan Nasiha, was sworn in as the new deputy governor of Zamfara state. This followed his appointment by Governor Bello Matawalle and swift confirmation by the state House of Assembly. Nasiha replaced Mahadi Ali, who was indicted on Wednesday afternoon after 20 of 24 members of the state House of Assembly voted in favor of his impeachment. Mr. Nasiha was sworn in before Chief State Judge Kulu Aliyu at Zamfara Government House at 5:40 pm on Wednesday. During the selection exercise, he was only asked to submit his CV and take a bow as a sitting legislator. Nasiha, who was interim president of APC in the state, was also previously in the Senate from 2007 to 2011 after serving as a commissioner for eight years, from 1999 to 2007.
