Dundubus headed Jigawa Assembly as itts Speaker from 1999-2003, a very powerful Speaker the state ever had, due to his principles and ideology which led to his impeachment after he declared former Governor Saminu Turaki wanted and asked him to return back to the state or face impeachment due to his unusual absence for over two months.
Shortly after his speakership, pate Dundubus served during Sule Lamido-led PDP administration as council’s secretary of Dutse Municipal, Special Adviser to the Governor, and House of Assembly aspirant in the 2019 general elections.
