KADUNA CRISIS: LAWMAKERS HONOUR DECEASED PERSONS
Kaduna State House of Assembly, yesterday, observed a minute silence in honour of those who lost their lives in the recent Kaduna violence.
The Speaker of the House, Alhaji Mu'azu Usman Gangara who led other lawmakers in the prayer session on the floor of the House, also condoled with the state government and the families of the deceased.
Reading the condolence message on the floor of the house during its plenary sitting, the speaker further commended the state and federal government, traditional and religious leaders, as well as the security agencies for their effort in the attainment of peace and order in the state.
This was just as he appealed to the people in the state to live in peace with one another regardless of ethnic, tribal, as well as religious affiliation.
The Assembly which resumed from its two week recess described the bombing of churches and the reprisal and counter-reprisals attacks which culminating in the colossal loss of lives of innocent peoples and properties worth millions of naira as unfortunate and uncalled for.
Meanwhile, the House has adopted the report on a bill for a law to provide for licensing of Hotels and Tourism Establishment in Kaduna State.
The adoption of the report followed the presentation of the report by the Joint Committee on Culture and Tourism as well as Judiciary.
Presenting the report on the floor of the house, the chairman of the Joint committee, Alhaji Gambo Ibrahim Muhammad, said that the committee in the course of its findings observed that most hotels and tourism establishments in Kaduna state were registered under business names, hence the need for a law to be enacted to allow for the issuance of licenses that would regulate the operation of the sub sector.
