Why I Was Suspended – Zamfara Lawmaker

One of the two suspended lawmakers by the Zamfara State House of Assembly, Hon. Yusuf Mohammed, representing Anka constituency has said that the Speaker, Nasiru Magarya, orchestrated his suspension to scupper a plan to impeach him for alleged incompetence.

Mr Muhammad said he was threatened by high-profile politicians in the state over the impeachment plan.

According to him, he initiated the move two months ago that the Speaker must be suspended over his incapacitation to lead the House according to the constitution.

The lawmaker told newsmen in Gusau, the State capital that the Speaker had since then not be happy with him for initiating his impeachment.

The lawmaker further explained that the Governor personally called and threatened him over the impeachment move, pointing out that all effort to let the Governor comprehend the inability of the Speaker to perform was unsuccessful.

He stated that after some days, the Governor ordered former finance minister, Bashir Yuguda to make peace between the group, for them to suspend their intentions and that because of the intervention of the former minister, Yuguda, the move was suspended.

“The entire members only urged the Governor to get things corrected in terms of how he runs his government in the overall interest of moving the State forward.

“Surprisingly, while in Kano attending UNICEF workshop, I started receiving calls from different quarters informing me of my suspension over alleged connection with armed bandits,” he said.

He challenged Hon. Yusuf Alhassan Kanoma who was the brain behind the motion to schedule time for them to swear with the holy Quran if at all he is sincere.
