OrderPaperToday– Representing Bauchi Federal constituency under the platform of the Peoples’ Redemption Party (PRP), Yakubu Shehu Abdullahi is a newbie at the 9th National Assembly.
One of the twelve representatives from Bauchi at the House of Representatives, Shehu serves as the Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Emergency and Disaster Preparedness.
Although a member of several other committees, the lawmaker didn’t make a showing in the mid-term bills chart.
In the area of representation, Mr. Shehu was reported to have received an open letter in January 2021, from Sulaiman Majaima, one of his constituents a member of his constituency. Details of the letter indicate that the constituency was yet to feel the influence of his representation in his first two years.
It is hoped that the legislator will make a good showing at the green chamber before the end of his tenure in 2023.
Editor’s Note: Rankings with the use of OrderPaper‘s Bill Chart is 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.
