The Kogi state House of Assembly has impeached the Speaker of the Assembly, Abdullahi Bello and ten other principal officers.
The Kogi state House of Assembly has been in disarray in the last few
months over plan by some aggrieved members to remove the Speaker and
other principal officers of the House.
The Speaker has been having a running battle with some lawmakers who had been plotting to remove him from office.
It is not clear how many lawmakers were at Tuesday morning’s sitting as the House was not set to sit until Thursday.
The Minority Leader of the assembly, Yori
Afolabi, had previously warned against the desperate attempt to remove
the leadership of the House, noting that the executive arm of government
is dangling N15 million to any lawmaker who consents to the plot.
Meanwhile, the House of assembly have elected Lawal Jimoh to replace Mr Bello as Speaker.
