Bribery: Zamfara Assembly Opts For Legal Action

Zamfara State House of Assembly has passed a resolution, seeking the state’s Attorney General, Sani Abdulaziz to institute legal action against a Gusau-based online television for reporting against it.

This followed the adoption of a motion by the Majority Leader, Alhaji Bello Mazawaje at Wednesday’s plenary in Gusau as reported by NAN.

Mazawaje in his motion said the online TV was deliberately spreading fake news against the house, thus the need for legal action.

Seconding the motion, the majority whip, Alhaji Rilwanu Marafa (PDP-Anka Constituency) urged the house to take the matter seriously because its reputation was at stake.

After deliberations, the lawmakers unanimously adopted the motion, calling for legal action against the station.

The online television station had transmitted an audio clip revealing that former Governor, Abdulaziz Yari has bribed the lawmakers with N100 million.
