State Assembly Impeach Deputy Speaker, three Others

by Debo Wale

The Deputy Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Ahmed Muhammed, and three other principal officers of the House have been sacked.

They were removed at an emergency sitting on Friday in Lokoja.

The three principal officers removed from office and later suspended from the House are the Majority Leader, Bello Hassan Balogun, Deputy Majority Leader, Idris Ndako, and the Chief Whip, Hon Edoko Moses Ododo.

The impeachment came on the heel of an accusation of gross misconduct and arbitrary use of office levelled against the officers.

In a motion of urgent importance read by Hon. Enema Paul, member representing Dekina/Okura State Constituency, 17 lawmakers signed the removal of Hon Ahmed Mohammed and the suspension of three other principal officers in the house.

The house, however, announced Alfa Momoh Rabiu, the lawmaker representing Ankpa II, as the new Deputy Speaker.
