Jubilee MCA Loses Seat After Missing Sittings For Two Years
Jubilee Nominated MCA Habiba Hussein has lost her seat for not attending assembly sessions and committee sittings for two years.

‘‘I want to tell you sergeant at arms and honourable members to be serious as recommended .. I said this, 2020 things will be different I hereby declare the seat of honourable Habiba vacant.’’ Elachi said.
In the powers and privileges report, Habiba failed to honour the summons to explain the cause for her absenteeism.
