He was appointed to committees on Downstream Petroleum, Inter-Parliamentary Affairs, Public Accounts and States & Local Government.[1] After the state governor Alhaji Mamuda Aliyu Shinkafi transferred his allegiance from the ANPP to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sahabi Ya'u made it clear that he retained loyalty to Shinkafi, although he still remains technically a member of the ANPP.[2] In February 2008, Ya’u gave his support for President Umaru Yar'Adua (PDP) against charges that he was indecisive, saying that it was necessary to study situations in Nigeria thoroughly before taking decisions.[3] In March 2009, Yaú said that the National Assembly's Joint Committee on Constitution Review, of which he is a member, was considering giving the third tier of government in Nigeria budgets independent of the state governments. The goal would be to ensure that funding for local projects was used for the intended purpose. In the 9 April 2011 elections, Yaú ran for re-election as Zamfara North Senator, this time on the People's Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
