A former House leader, Alhassan Ado Doguwa has denied an online media report, where he was allegedly quoted saying he received 3 official cars from the Speaker of the House of Representatives after sent packing by a court of appeal.
Solacebase recalled that the court of appeal sitting in Kaduna nullified the election of Alhassan Doguwa, the house of representatives majority leader from Kano state on November 4, wherein a unanimous judgment ordered that a fresh poll be conducted in the Tudunwada/Doguwa federal constituency.
A statement issued by Alhassan Doguwa Media Office on Tuesday signed by Hassan Inuwa said Alhassan Doguwa had recently hosted party supporters and other well-wishers, who trooped to register their sympathy over the recent court verdict that ordered for a fresh election in Doguwa/Tudun-Wada federal constituency.
The statement said it is also known that during such visits, some of the visitors recorded the events and shared the short, disjointed clips on social media platforms.
According to the statement, the story did not capture the true context of Doguwa’s remark
‘’ It is on record that no principal officer, serving or non-serving, was allocated any vehicle yet by the House.
‘’Therefore, to say that the former member received official vehicles during this transition period was out of place and wild machinations from political opponents to smear his name,’’ said the statement.
It noted that as a law-abiding citizen, Alhassan would never indulge himself in any action that could undermine the honor and esteem of the House as well as the sanctity of the rule of law.
