While welcoming the association to the State Assembly, he told them that just like the Kaduna State Government’ led by Malam Nasir el-Rufai is for everyone irrespective of tribe or religion, the Assembly’ is also free for everybody to visit.
“His Excellency, Malam Nasir el-Rufai is a man of his words. I was speaking to his Excellency about the stadium round about bridge and the need to get a back up and within a short time, he approved construction of bridge from Kabala Doki axis to Barnawa over River Kaduna,” he said.
“I promise tomorrow, I will call the MD KADRA to find out situation of your road. We will do it under urban renewal.
“When you do a lump sum, the Goverment can change direction every time so your area can be captured,” he further assured.

“A lot of people are saying the Stats Assembly is a rubber stamp, but we are not.
“This is the only Assembly’ that money is not given before approval of budget from the Governor.
“I have been in this Assembly’ since 2007 and I can say, this is the best Governor so far.
“He gives contract through bids, even without knowing the person.
“Someone applied for a contract worth over N500m without knowing anyone, he was excited when he got it without knowing anyone.
“Before even a contract of N500,000, the Governor must know who is getting it,” he explained.
The Speaker said that since the Inception if this regime in 2016, the only complain people are having is that he is not sharing money.
“He is only concerned about capital projects,” he added.
Zailani stressed that it is only in Kaduna State that they have a Leadership Council, chaired by the Chief Judge of the state, where the Governor is just an ordinary member and yeilds up to superior arguments.
