Two PDP Lawmakers Suspended In Kaduna
The Kaduna State House of Assembly has suspended two of its members indefinitely.
The two lawmakers, who were elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, were suspended for allegedly engaging in some activities capable of engendering conflict in the assembly.
The suspended lawmakers are: Bityong Nkom representing Kaura and Danladi Kwasu representing Zangon Kataf.
The suspension came after a motion moved by Muktar Hazo, a member representing APC- Doka Gabasawa Constituency, on matter of urgent public importance.
“What they were doing can bring the assembly into disputes and this assembly is known nationwide as one of the best and as such we should uphold that.
“In this regards and in order to safeguard the integrity of this great Assembly, I wish to move that Danladi Kwasu and Bityong Nkom representing Kaura and Zangon Kataf respectively be suspended from this assembly till further notice,” he said.
Abdulrahman Haruna, representing APC-Kawo, seconded the motion, saying, “Anybody who wants to create problem in this Assembly, nobody will stop us from taking action against that person. I therefore second the motion.”
The Speaker, Aminu Shagali said that the House has suspended the two members until further notice.
In his reaction, Nkom said that the House should tell them the offence they have committed.
“Let the procedures be followed you don’t suspend me before you invite me to ethics and privileges committee. Why do you suspend me before you hear from me,” he said.
The Speaker then directed the sergeant at arms to take the two members out of the plenary and adjourned the sitting until Wednesday.
