Kogi Assembly removes Speaker, deputy, others

All the principal officers were removed

The Kogi State House of Assembly has impeached the Speaker of the Assembly, Abdullahi Bello. Reports indicate that the deputy speaker, and 10 other principal officers were also removed from office.

It is not clear how many lawmakers were at Tuesday morning’s sitting as the 25-member House was not set to sit until Thursday. The lawmakers also prevented staff and observers from witnessing their sitting.

Mr. Bello has reportedly rejected the impeachment saying Tuesday’s sitting is illegal.

The Speaker has been having a running battle with some lawmakers who had been plotting to remove him from office. It is believed that the anti-speaker lawmakers are doing the bidding of the state governor, Idris Wada.
