House of Representative Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal, on Wednesday, May 27, stepped down following his valedictory session.

In his speech, he said the poor  relationship between the executive arm and the legislature diverted the House’s attention many times. which caused the nation a lot of embarrassment.

Tambuwal proudly said that the Seventh Assembly he presided over was not soiled with allegations of corruption except in a couple of cases,  out of which only one is yet to be given a clean bill.

He said, “I must say that the frosty relationship between the executive and Seventh House was an unnecessary distraction and a source of embarrassment to the nation. It is unwarranted that a ruling party with clear majority boxed itself into that situation. If the executive fails to recognize the independence of the legislature and expects that it is a rubber stamp then frosty relation is bound to follow."

Tambuwal emerged winner of the Sokoto State governorship election in the April 11 gubernatorial poll in the country.
