Constituents of Kaura Namoda-Birnin Magaji federal constituency of Zamfara State have notified the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, of their resolve to recall Hon. Aminu Sani Jaji from the House of Representatives.

The constituents said their decision is on account of poor representation pursuant to Section 69 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The recall letter, submitted by the constituents to the office of the chairman at the INEC Headquarters in Abuja, was duly acknowledged and stamped.

Constituents have also commenced the collection of signatures of the voters as contained in the voters’ register, which will be forwarded to the commission for verification of the voters’ signatures and subsequently to conduct a referendum for Jaji’s recall.

The statement, signed by Hon. Bello Mahmud Birnin Magaji, chairman of the Coalition for Sustainable Democracy and its secretary, Comrade Mustapha Ibrahim, said: “We urge eligible voters in the constituency to turn up en masse for this crucial civic exercise. The urgent need to recall Hon. Jaji cannot be overemphasised, as he failed woefully to represent his constituency at a time when his service is most needed.”
