The Bauchi State House of Assembly on Friday, screened and confirmed Audu Katagum as deputy governor in the state. The confirmation was made during a plenary presided over by the Speaker, Kawuwa Damina.
The nominee spent less than five minutes with the lawmakers at the screening because of a motion by the member representing Bura constituency, Abdullahi Abdulkadir, who asked that the nominee be cleared having served the state as a Chief of Staff to the incumbent governor, Mohammed Abubakar. The motion was seconded by Ibrahim Katagum, who represents Katagum constituency.
Subsequently, the House confirmed the nominee as the state’s new deputy governor.
It would be recalled that the former Deputy Governor, Nuhu Gidado resigned his position on May 24. The governor had in June, nominated his Chief of Staff, Katagum for confirmation as the deputy governor to the House of Assembly.
