0 6

The Speaker of Kano State House of Assembly, Alhaji Gambo Sallau, on Tuesday announced his resignation from the position.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that this is coming barely 24 hours after 26 out of the 31 legislators defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressive Congress.

Sallau said in a broadcast on Freedom Radio, Kano, that his decision to resign as speaker was based on political reasons.

“I, Gambo Sallau, the Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, hereby announce my resignation as the speaker.

“Now that the PDP has become an opposition party, I will not continue to be the Speaker of the House,” he said.

He commended members of the house, the state government and the public for the support they had given him in the last two years.
