Records however, show that he is the only representative among the six-man contingent from Gombe at the House who is yet to sponsor a bill at mid-term.

His tribesman, Ahmed Zakari, however, has songs of praises for the lawmaker; pointing to a number of projects he has facilitated for his constituents.

While this may mean that he has a track record of success in that aspect of representation, it is hoped that he will perform better in the remaining years of his four-year term as a 9th Assembly lawmaker.
