Plateau State House of Assembly Impeaches Speaker, Majority Leader

The Speaker of Plateau State House of Assembly, Peter Azi, was on Wednesday impeached by 17 out of the 24-member parliament dominated by the All Progressives Congress.

He was replaced by Joshua Izang Madaki, a legal practitioner representing Jos East constituency.

The impeachment followed a motion on a ‘vote-of-no confidence’ moved by the lawmaker representing Barkin Ladi constituency, Peter Gyendeng, against the speaker.

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

Also removed was the Majority Leader, Henry Yunkwap, representing Shendam constituency, who was also replaced by Hon. Nanlong, of Mikang constituency.

They were said to have been sacked over “irreconcilable differences” in the recent removal of Local Government Caretaker Committee chairmen.
