Former Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Information, representing Baruten /Kaiama constituency of Kwara State, Hon Zakari Mohammed has said he will abide by the final decision of the All Progressives Congress (APC) leader in the state, Dr Bukola Saraki on the issue of the 2019 gubernatorial ticket.

Mohammed was among gubernatorial hopeful whose names were being mentioned for the 2019 general elections in Kwara state.

According to him, “though my supporters adjudged me as one of those who parades the credentials to vie for the position. But I would subject myself to the tradition of the political family of which I am also a member.

”So for me, I think as human being we always like to talk about tomorrow but only God knows who will be alive then.

But I want to say we have a leadership in Kwara, we have a pattern, we have a tradition, a practice through which leaders or through those who governed us emerged. So as a member of that political family, I believe that when the time comes, the appropriate measure would be applied and at the end of the day the verdict of the leader will defiantly be what we will abide by”.

Speaking on the attack on the legislature by Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, Zakari cautioned the governor against casting aspersions on the legislature.

He said the governor should not because of ”individual inclination” and his grouse with some lawmakers continue to demonise the legislature, describing his recent outburst over the National Assembly budget as ”Hypocritical”.

The lawmaker spoke with journalists in his home town Gure in Baruten local government area of Kwara state at the sideline of the 15th Gure/Day celebration held in his home town.

He said the long incursion of military into Nigerian’ politics had not allow Nigerians to change their perception about the legislature as  a ”yes or rubber stamp house,”’ saying  the two chambers of the National Assembly should rather be seen as maintaining  checks to excesses of the executive .
