Gombe Assembly Deputy Speaker Impeached


The Deputy Speaker of Gombe State House of Assembly, Shaiubu Haruna, has been impeached.

Haruna was impeached by 21 out of the 24 members of the House during plenary on Tuesday at the legislative chamber in Gombe, the state capital.

The motion to impeach the former deputy Speaker was moved by Adamu Pata, member representing Yamaltu East; and was seconded by the member representing Billiri West Tulfugut Kardi.

Haruna was removed from office for allegedly disobeying an internal order to boycott all executive functions.

The embattled Deputy Speaker has since been replaced by Sidi Buba, the lawmaker representing Kwami West constituency.
