There are indications that Abdussamad Dasuki may succeed Aminu Tambuwal as the Speaker House of Representatives, after clinching the ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC for the Kebbe-Tambuwal Federal Constituency in Sokoto State, according to reports.
Should Dasuki, a son of the former Sultan of Sokoto win he would succeed Tambuwal, who has occupied the seat for the last eight years. Tambuwal was elected as the APC’s governorship candidate in Sokoto ahead of next year’s polls.
Dasuki, from Dogon Daji in Tambuwal LGA, was affirmed as the candidate of the constituency by 176 delegates from 21 wards in Kebbe and Tambuwal local government areas of Sokoto State. The election, which took place at the Tambuwal Stadium, had in attendance political office holders from the constituency serving at both the State and Federal levels.
Dasuki, a Harvard trained economist, is presently the Chairman of Finance and Appropriation committee of the Sokoto State House of Assembly.
