Dasuki Sets to Replace Speaker Tambuwal

A member of Sokoto State House of Assembly, chairman of Finance and Appropriation committee of the Sokoto House of Assembly and son of former Sultan of Sokoto, Hon. Abdulsamad Dasuki is set to replace Speaker of House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.

Since Tambuwal declared his interest to contest Sokoto governorship seat, Dasuki subscribed to replace him by picking nomination form for the House of Representatives to represent Kebbe-Tambuwal Federal Constituency that Tambuwal presently represents.

Having clinched the APC governorship ticket with 3,466 votes, Tambuwal will not be returning to the National Assembly and having clinched the APC House of Reps ticket with 416 votes, if Dasuki wins the February 2015 election, he will succeed Tambuwal.
