Senator Jibrin Barau represents the good people of Kano North for the third time in a row, having served at the 8th, 9th and the coming 10th Senate.
Though, since 1999 , Jibrin Barau had been in the National Assembly having served as a federal lawmaker representing his constituency from Kano state.
In the last two decades , Senator Jibrin Barau armed with a ranking advantage had navigated the national assembly from the green chamber to the current red chamber at the top echelon.
Having served as commissioner in Kano state along with board chairmanship, he was already strategically positioned with alot of resume to pilot the affairs of the National Assembly in the coming 10th Senate.
With indepth experience in lawmaking, protagonist of January to December budget circle of the National Assembly, the zeal to consolidate such a gigantic achievements can only be realizable in Senator Jibrin Barau as the President of the Senate in the 10th Assembly.
Barau who held the TETFUND committee in the 8th Senate among many other committees was also the chairman Senate committee on appropriation at the 9th Assembly with outstanding performance in that regard.
He ensured the sustenance of the budget circle of January to December without reservation as the strict policy had transformed the public service laced with transparency and accountability.
Barau who hailed from North West part of the country had consistently turned in the highest number of votes from the area, compared to the five other geopolitical zones in the country and had not at any point in time produced both the Senate and Deputy Senate President in the current political dispensation since 1999.
He is the most ranking senator from the entire North West, North Central and North East having served both at the green and lower chamber in the current realities.
With his experience at the red chamber and committee leadership and lately the chairman Senate committee on appropriation and chaired the joint appropriation committee of the whole house, no doubt Senator Jibrin Barau will not only sustain the January to December budget circle that had nipped in the bud corruption and sharp practices in the public service and government businesses, but will improve on the current budget performance amidst other variables.
Barau who had displayed acute leadership traits both in his public and private lives had ensured the consistent policy framework geared towards leveraging on the statutory functions of the National Assembly to the entire polity.
All hands must be on deck to support Senator Jibrin Barau as the President of the Senate of the 10th National Assembly to ensure more achievements in all areas of our national development.
