Deputy Speaker’s Aide Slumps, Dies In NASS

A Senior Legislative Assistant with the National Assembly, Abubakar Sani Doki on Monday collapsed and died in National Assembly premises, Independent can authoritatively report.

The deceased who was said to be in his early 50s was until his death, a Senior Legislative Aide (SLA) attached to the office of the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Sulaiman Yussuf Lasun.

The deceased was said to have taken ill at the early hours of Monday and was brought to the National Assembly clinic.

However, on getting to the Assembly clinic, he was told his condition was beyond what the clinic facilities could handle, and was therefore referred to seek treatment outside.

The deceased, brought to the clinic by his son whose name could not be ascertained as at press time reportedly collapsed on his way out of the National Assembly complex prompting security operatives including National Assembly Sergeant-At-Arm personnel and bystanders to rush to the scene.

However, their effort at alerting medical personnel from the clinic in an attempt resuscitate him proved abortive as he immediately gave up the ghost.

Speaking to Independent, a senior medical staff with the Assembly clinic who doesn’t want her name in prints stated “the deceased came to the clinic for treatment but had to be referred since his condition was already critical”.

Asked what the nature of the ailment was, the source said it couldn’t be ascertained since there was no diagnosis done on him to verify the nature of his condition.

According to her, “sick staff who can’t access treatment at the clinic due to the complexity of their cases usually come referral notes to government hospitals outside”.

Late Abubakar Doki, a native of Bungudu in Zamfara State was according to National Assembly records employed under the office of the Deputy Speaker as a Senior Legislative Aide.
