The Senator representing Kano South, Sulaiman Abdulrahman Kawu Sumaila, has explained that he and other senators are fighting for fairness in budgetary allocations to the six geo-political zones in the country.

He said the move being kicked against by others is aimed at ensuring that major projects that would enhance the socio-economic well-being of the people are completed without delay.

The Kano Senator in a statement yesterday expressed worry over the killing of 11 persons in an auto crash along Kano-Maiduguri Road on Friday, saying: “With enough budgetary allocations to the geo-political zones, this kind of project would have been completed in time.”

The lawmaker said, “This is the reason why we are fighting for fairness in the budgetary allocations to the six geo-political zones, but some people for their selfish interests are kicking against our moves.

“It is our duty as members of the National Assembly to channel the plights and yearnings of our constituents to the executive arm of government in order to do the right thing to improve their well-being.

“And one of the surest ways to achieve that is to ensure fairness and equality in budgetary allocations. This is the only way projects that have direct bearing to the life of the common man will be executed.”
