Kaduna Assembly Suspends Ex-Deputy Speaker, Others For Nine Months




The Kaduna State House of Assembly on Tuesday suspended three lawmakers from participating in activities of the house for nine months.

Naija News reports that those suspended were Mukhtar Isa-Hazo, a former deputy speaker representing Basawa constituency, Mr Nuhu Goroh-Shadalafiya of Kagarko constituency and Alhaji Yusuf Liman-Dahiru, Kakuri/Makera constituency.

They were suspended for causing disaffection among members and denigrating the office of the deputy speaker.

The assembly headed by Deputy Speaker, Mr Isaac Auta-Zankai, also asked five other members to apologise to the assembly in writing and publish the apology in a national daily within a week.

Those repremanded include Salisu Isa (Magajin Gari), former Speaker, Aminu Abdullahi-Shagali (Sabon Gari), AbdulWahab Idris (Ikara), Yusuf Salihu (Kawo) and Nasiru Usman (Tudun Wada).

The disciplinary actions were taken after the Assembly adopted the report of the committee that investigated the fracas that occurred during its sitting on June 11.

Alhaji Shehu Yunusa who headed the committee recommended the suspension and reprimand of the affected members in accordance with the Assembly’s Code of Conduct.
