‎Because it wants a harmonious working relationship with the legislative arm of government in the state, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has said, was the reason that his administration could not interfere in the selection of the principal officers of the state House of Assembly.

He spoke on Thursday when he received members of the House, led by the newly-elected Speaker, Hon. Salihu Maidaji, stressing that “the state government would encourage and support the new leadership to achieve its set objectives.”

While commending the members for the orderly manner they sat 
on the first day of sitting, Tambuwal admonished the new leaders to work for the unity, stability and progress of the state at all times.

“I will use my experience as a former lawmaker to ensure a smooth working relationship between the executive and other arms of government in the state,” he assured.

Hon. Maidaji earlier commended Tambuwal for his role in promoting good legislative ethics and assured that “the state Assembly will work hand in hand with the state government to provide quality and responsible leadership to the people of Sokoto State.”

He appealed to the Governor to always offer advise to the new members when the need arose.
