Aggrieved lawmakers absolve “impeached” speaker of fraud allegations

Must read

Some members of the Plateau State House of Assembly have risen in stout defence of the embattled Speaker, Abok Atuba, describing the allegations of financial misappropriation levelled against him by some of their colleagues as false and malicious.
This was contained in a statement signed and released by twelve of the 24 members of the assembly, on Friday, in Jos, the state capital.
The aggrieved members of the House of Assembly also described the impeachment of Abok by eight members of the assembly as illegal.
They added that the removal of Abok had less than two-thirds majority of members at plenary, adding that the purported impeachment proceedings were held at odd hours.
It will be recalled that Yakubu Sanda and some of his colleagues had, on November 11, in a press conference, accused Abok of financial misappropriation, adding that they followed due process in his impeachment.
