“However, we at the assembly got prior knowledge of this alleged act of impunity by this two persons even before the list was submitted to the State Assembly for approval, and this made us reject the list, and the list was returned,” the Assembly source said.
“But curiously we gathered that when this list was returned to them, Uba Nana allegedly wrote an undertaking asking members of the Assembly to sign with a bribe of a return ticket for the 2019 State Assembly Election in their respective constituencies as well as other juicy incentives. This undertaking letter was brought to the House by Hon. Yunusa Ahmed, the Member Warji constituency.” Universalreporters247.com further learnt that Hon.

“What I can tell you is that these two people, Uba Nana and Ali Kumo and the Governor, Mohammed Abubakar are just using each other to get what they want. In fact, this is how they have been running the government,” our source said.
