Speaker, Plateau State House of Assembly impeached

Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Mr. Peter Azi has been impeached.

Mr Azi was impeached by the lawmakers who immediately elected Joshua Madaki as their new Speaker.

The impeachment followed a motion on a vote of no confidence moved by the lawmaker representing Barkin Ladi constituency, Mr. Peter Gyendeng.

Other lawmakers at the session unanimously passed the motion through a voice vote, leading to the removal of the former speaker.

In the same vein, the Majority Leader of the Assembly, Henry Yunkwap, was also impeached on the same grounds and replaced by Nanlong Daniel.
