The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the Senate, Uba Sani, has been awarded the most active lawmaker 2020 (northern region).
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Kaduna, Nasir Dambatta, reports that the award has drawn cheers and adoration from Senator Sani's constituents.
The coordinator and publisher of Nigerian Assembly newspapers, Omoboye Oluwole and Toyin Suleiman, while presenting the award, noted that Uba, a first-time senator, has broken an unprecedented records in the art and science of lawmaking.
Oluwole said that having sponsored several bills and motions within the time he has spent, the senator has surpassed his counterparts from the north.
They observed that Uba Sani earned the honour not only for sponsoring many bills and motions but for sponsoring bills that potentially added value to the people.
The coordinator said:
“The bills and motions also directly touch the lives of his constituents through women and youth empowerment, educational development initiatives, scholarships and poverty alleviation programmes among others."
Responding to the outstanding honour, various youth groups and stakeholders across Kaduna state, said it is well-deserved and described Uba Sani as "the pride of northern Nigeria."
The union for good governance in its reaction, said the coveted 2020 special recognition for legislative excellence, is eminently earned by the senator.

"The distinguished Senator, who is also the chairman of banking, insurance and other financial Institutions has performed so well, even beyond his calling as a lawmaker by way of philanthropic gestures in remote rural communities of Kaduna state."
He recounted the senator's personal initiatives to include, provision of scholarship to the exceptionally-brilliant children from poor homes in Kaduna Central senatorial district, saying it is "a one-man squad for boosting literacy in his constituency and indeed the north as a region."
Rigasa also said the lawmaker has singled himself out "as an anti-poverty warrior for Kaduna Central and indeed northern Nigeria."
