Jigawa Assembly impeaches speaker

Speaker of the Jigawa state House of Assembly Idris Garba has been impeached.

It was gathered that members of the House impeached him this morning, January 3, and elected Alhaji Isa Idris as new speaker.

Garba’s impeachment makes him the third speaker to lose his post in recent days across Nigeria.

Last week, Abia state House of Assembly impeached a speaker Martins Azubuike but his replacement Kennedy Njoku resigned 24 hours after.

In Rivers state, the speaker Adams Dabotorudima also stepped down by ‘political arrangement’ for a new one.
