The lawmakers said they have seen the governor take positive steps to resolve the security situation.
The lawmakers’ action followed the submission of a report by the House Committee on Security Matters headed by Mohammed Baba-Ibakun (PDP- Udege/Loko).
While submitting the reports, Baba-Ibaku said the measures contained in the report would guide the governor against future crisis, urging the governor to ensure that the security operatives mounted check points at various areas facing security challenges.
In his contribution, a member of the committee, Francis Orogu, (PDP-Keana), stressed the need to find a lasting solution to the spate of insecurity in the state.
The Assembly unanimously adopted the committee’s report.
The Speaker of the Assembly, Mohammed Ahmed- Musa, therefore, withdrew the previous impeachment threat issued as the governor had responded promptly to the security challenges in the state.
The governor had taken serious measures to check frequent communal crisis in the southern senatorial district of the state and “we hereby withdraw our one-week ultimatum for his impeachment passed on him recently,” the speaker said.
Mr. Ahmed-Musa commended the governor for his move to protect people’s lives and property, assuring him of the lawmakers’ support in moving the state forward.
He urged security agencies in the state to adopt house-to-house search so as to apprehend those with arms and other dangerous weapons.
