The Speaker of Kebbi State House of Assembly, Hon. Habib Musa Jega has been dropped. Hon. Mohammed Shalla Gwandu has been confirmed by the assistant of the House, Shehu Usman Randali, as the new Speaker. The reprimand, which occurred around 10:25pm at the House of Assembly in Birnin Kebbi was marked by 16 parts out of 24 parts of the House. Not long after the swearing of the new speaker, Hon Mohammed Shalla Gwandu thanked the House for the trust they had in him and guaranteed to work congruously with all parts and the state government.
“I thank all the members for the confidence they have in me and promise to wok harmoniously with both the state government and members of the House so that our people will reap dividends of democracy,” he said.
Hon Abdullahi Garba Fana speaking to Dandi body electorate told news men that the House sat and evaluated the execution of the previous leader and reasoned that the impeached speaker was uncouth to proceed as their leader. At the point when asked to specify the impeachable offenses conferred by the ex-speaker, he said
“The reason is just incompetence and members have no confidence in him any longer.”
The impeachment is coming barely two days after the news of 17 members of House allegedly planning to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
