State lawmakers in Nigeria remove principal officers for contemplating impeaching speaker



Jigawa, a state in politically savvy north west Nigeria, had its State House of Assembly on Wednesday make the bold move to impeach two principal officers and suspend four local government chairmen.

The recent developments at the state lawmakers assembly have brought significant changes to the leadership and governance of the state.

The impeachment of the deputy majority leader, Honourable Aliyu Ahmed, and the chief whip, Dayyabu Shehu Kwalo, came as a result of allegations of plotting and supporting the previous impeachment move of the Speaker of the House.

The motion brought by Hamza Ibrahim Adamu, representing Malam Madori State Assembly Constituency, received unanimous approval from the house members, leading to the removal of the two officers.

In addition to the impeachments, the House also took action against four local government council chairmen over allegations of financial misconduct.

The House Committee report on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs revealed questionable expenditures and financial transactions during oversight visits to the 27 local government areas.

As a result, chairmen from Auyo, Dutse, Gumel, and Ringim were suspended for their alleged involvement in financial scandals within their respective local councils.

These actions demonstrate the Assembly’s commitment to upholding accountability and transparency in governance at both the state and local government level.

By holding officials accountable for their actions and ensuring proper oversight of financial matters, the Assembly is working towards ensuring good governance and serving the best interests of the people of Jigawa State.

It is essential for all public officials to act with integrity and in the best interests of the public, and the recent actions taken by the Assembly send a strong message that unethical behavior will not be tolerated.
