Plateau Assembly tussle - I never lobbied to become Speaker - Sanda

By Golok Nanmwa , Jos 

Speaker Plateau State House of Assembly, Hon. Yakubu Sanda, on Monday said he  never lobbied anybody to become the Speaker of the House 

He said: "I never dreamed of becoming the Speaker. I never gone anywhere to lobby for the seat of the Speakership." 

"My becoming the speaker is just the will of God. What I know is that the People of Pengana Constituency, mandated me to represent them and today God has made me to become the speaker 

The lawmaker who became the speaker following the  crisis that rocked the assembly in recent times said this while receiving Jere Community Leaders who visited him in Jos.

He added that the Assembly under his leadership will work closely with Governor Simon Lalong's led administration for the overall benefits of the People of Plateau State.

Speaker Sanda urged the People to pray for peace and security of the State, adding that people must learn to live peacefully with one another irrespective of their religious or ethnic differences.

"We can not succeed when the three arms of Government are not working together, so I assured that I will work with our leader, Governor Simon Lalong, so that we can succeed," he said.

The President of Jere National Development Association (JNDA) in Bassa LGA, Pastor Samuel Mamma who spoke earlier , said their visit is  to show solidarity to him and urged the people of the state to work with Sanda so that he would play his role in taking the state forward.
