Meet Our 32 Year Old Speaker of House Of Assembly, By Jamilu Mabai
Aliyu Sabiu Muduru that was his name before assuming the position of the speaker of the 8th state house of assembly Katsina State after a heated session that engulfed the state house of assembly on its opening day which he emerged as the new speaker of Katsina State House of Assembly, Now he is known as RT. Hon Aliyu Sabiu Muduru. For the first time the youth in Katsina State have triumphed by having the first ever youth as the speaker of the state house despite the dense atmosphere of tension and pressure from the opposition house members whom felt they deserve the position of the house speaker because of their OLD age, work experience and to hold on to a primitive culture of only the elder one’s can lead even when they are incompetent.
They said “he is immature “he never had any working experience, he graduated from university in 2012, he is young and incompetent to lead the leadership as speaker of the house.
If I may recall vividly when Alh Maitama Sule made mentioned that he was elected into the federal house of assembly at the age of 23yrs. So, since when does age becomes a requisite in electing our principal officers at state house assembly? For how many years has the state assembly house been occupied and led by the so called matured individuals with no visible result but a mere puppets used by the executives. To what benefit was their age to the people they represented? Age as it is, is a number with which they took the advantage of a culture that regard age than to competency, and that was why we were kept on the dark side with nothing to see or cry about for many years.
The slogan of youth being the leaders of tomorrow is now taking effect and then why should we be afraid of the long awaited time. We shouldn’t allow the mentality of yesterday’s men affect our present and future by joining the old loose wagon of condemning and criticizing the new humble youthful speaker by not standing united and giving him the necessary support to serve and make the best judgments that will bring progress to our state.
Yes without no doubt this is our time and era, it is now or never, which by the grace of God we will make the best use of it and lay a new foundation of the 21st century minds. We shall not relinquish power back to the hyenas and vultures of yesterday’s men.
Come 2019, Katsina State house of assembly shall be dominated entirely by the youth whom are ready to take control of their destiny, whom no longer wants to be followers but leaders as well.
RT.HON Aliyu Sabiu Muduru and the rest youthful members of the state house of assembly have all taken their first steps and surely God will guide them till the very end and also this will serve as a UN forgetful moment that will bring and end to the primitive syndrome of immaturity/maturity and replace by competency and eligibility.
RT.HON Aliyu Sabiu Muduru is young, matured, competent and eligible to steer the wheel of leadership which he has started wonderfully. Seeing is everything when it comes to leadership, be kind to pay him a visit and you shall have a positive story to tell.
