The Adamawa State House of Assembly has passed a bill for the creation of 22 additional districts in the state.

The bill was passed after Majority Leader and member of the Jada Mbulo Constituency, Hammantukur Yettisuri, presented it for a third reading on the Assembly floor during Wednesday’s sitting.

The motion for the third reading was put to a voice vote by Speaker of the Assembly, Aminu Iya Abbas, and was unanimously supported by the lawmakers.

The creation of additional districts followed the consideration and adoption as amended in the report of the Ad Hoc Committee for the Creation of New Districts during Tuesday’s plenary session.

The Assembly had, during its sitting on Tuesday, adopted the committee’s report of the ad-hoc committee.

Earlier this year, the district creation committee received 97 memoranda from various towns requesting the creation of new districts.
