Hon. Jagaba Adams Jagaba, set to run for Senate (Kaduna South).

Rt. Hon.( Dr.) Jagaba Adams Jagaba is a trained teacher, former member of the fourth estate of the realm, and a practicing farmer. He hails from Chigwa Village in Kurmin – Jibrin Ward, Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State. A Christian by faith, he is married to Mrs Celina Adams Jagaba, and blessed with six(6) children.

Beginning from 1999, he was elected to the National Assembly thrice, and has been serving the good people of Kachia/Kagarko Federal Constituency at the Green Chamber (House of Representatives). “In all of these years, I’ve always been saddled with one responsibility or the other, some of which are:
Chairman, House Committee on Anti – Corruption, National Ethics and Values (1999-2003);
Chairman, House Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Financial Crimes (2011-2015);
Chairman, House Committee on Interior (2015 till date).
Aside these Standing Committees of the House, I also chaired some critical ad hoc committees such as:
Anti – Corruption Act Legislation, NASS(1999-2001), and
Joint Committee on Central Bank Probe (2002-2003).
In 2003, I founded the the Forum of Former National Legislators and became its Chairman from 2004-2008”.

He was elected Chairman, Northern Legislators Forum for four (4) years (2011-2015). At the expiration of his tenure in 2015, he got re – elected for another four years to expire in 2019.
Aware that one of the key functions of a Legislator is the enactment of laws that would enhance good governance, he has sponsored twelve(12) Bills, moved over twenty(20) Motions and presented numerous Petitions on behalf of his Constituents.
“In fact, one of my motions which sought for the conversion or upgrading of General Hospital Kafanchan to a Federal Medical Center is receiving attention and will soon materialize.
My wealth of experience is not limited to legislation only, as I was once in the Executive arm of Government, having been elected Vice – Chairman of Kagarko Local Government Area from 1997-1998, before being appointed the Chairman, Interim Management Committee of the same Local Government in 2008. As a seasoned Administrator, I served as the Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Kaduna State Chapter from 2008-2011.

“Though legislative rituals such as lobbying, oversights, filibusters and the feedback culture between the Legislator and his Constituents are cumbersome and tasking, I derive immense joy in performing them as they serve to strengthen and deepen the pillars of our democracy. My experience at performing these arduous tasks is evident at my being able to influence the employment of about two hundred (200) youth across Southern kaduna in the Federal Civil Service.
Having traversed both the Legislative and Executive arms of government as well as being adept in party administration, I make bold to say that I possess the requisite credentials to represent Southern Kaduna Senatorial Zone at the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, come 2019”.
