Background[edit]

He was Chief Accountant Northern State Marketing Board 1970-1976, and an Assistant General Manager and Executive Director Union Bank Plc 1980-1990.[1]

Senator[edit]

Bauchi State, Nigeria

In April 2007, he ran for the Senate as a member of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) and was elected for the Bauchi Central constituency. He was appointed to committees on Integration and Cooperation, Finance (vice chairman), Ethics & Petition, Banking, Insurance & Other Financial Institutions.[1]

In January 2008 he was a member of the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges that was charged with investigating Senator Nuhu Aliyu's allegations about fraudsters in the National Assembly.[2]

In a February 2009 interview he expressed support for creation of new states in Nigeria and criticized the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).[3] He was among a group of senators who reportedly traveled to Ghana in May 2009 to attend a meeting with some oil companies, which resulted in a senate investigation.[4][5] He supported a bill proposed by President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua seeking to give more powers to the Nigeria Police during elections, which was rejected by the Senate.[6]

In his first two years in the Senate, he failed to initiate any bills.[7]
