Impeached Plateau Speaker Says 'No Regrets'
Impeached Speaker of Plateau House of Assembly, Mr Peter Azi said on Wednesday that he had no regrets over his removal
Azi, representing Jos North-East Constituency in the House, was unanimously removed by his colleagues in a dramatic sitting on Wednesday.
He was promptly replaced with Mr Joshua Madaki from Jos East Constituency as the new Speaker of the State House of Assembly.
Azi has now described his removal as “part of legislative dynamism’’ that shapes democracy.
“As we speak, I don’t have any regrets over my removal as speaker of Plateau State House of Assembly.
“To me, the removal is just part of the legislative dynamism, which I should gladly accept as it helps in shaping our democracy.
“In fact, I now feel relieved because now I have time to parley with people in my own constituency because then as speaker, I took the entire state as my constituency.
“I am happy that my colleagues did not pin-point my area of fault in my leadership, but only claimed they just needed a change of leadership,” he said.
