States Houses of Assembly are hostages of governors, says Shehu Sani

Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, said state Houses of Assembly are appendages and ‘hostages’ of governors.

He said the state legislators are too weak to investigate corruption, and that they always dance to the tune of the governors.

The senator made the comments at the launch of ‘Dubawa’ and ‘Udeme,’ platforms for verifying facts and tracking accountability in government by the citizens.

Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism (PTCIJ) launched the platforms in Abuja on Tuesday.
