OrderPaperToday – Shehu Ahmed is the lawmaker representing Maru/Bugudu Federal Constituency of Zamfara State in the House of Representatives.
Ahmed was first elected into the green chambers in the 2019 general election under the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).
Following the defection of his governor, Bello Matawalle to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2021, Shehu Ahmed alongside four other Representatives from Zamfara cross-carpeted to the governing party.
There were expectations in certain quarters that the lawmaker’s defection to the APC will spur him to perform beyond expectations, records however show that he did not sponsor any bill in his first two years (mid-term) at the 9th National Assembly.
Editor’s Note: Rankings with the use of OrderPaper‘s Bill Chart are without prejudice to efforts in the area of oversight responsibilities, as well as representation through motions and petitions sent in by constituents.
However, lawmaking in the form of bill sponsorship remains a core duty expected of every legislator. In the absence of bills to a lawmaker’s credit, therefore, a good showing in the aforementioned areas is a boost to his/her track record.
