Kaduna Assembly Suspends 2 PDP Lawmakers Indefinitely

BY RAHILA ABDULLAHI, Kaduna –

The Kaduna State House of Assembly has suspended two of its members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The suspension as a matter of public importance was due to their engagement in activities tending to destabilise the Assembly thereby bringing it to disrepute.

Hon Mukhtar Isa Hazo (Basawa) moved the motion saying that the Assembly which is known nationwide for being among the best should not allow such happenings.

“In this regard I wish to move that Hon. Danladi Angulu Kwasu (Zangon Kataf) and Hon. Bityong Yakubu Nkom (Kaura) be suspended from this assembly till further notice”.

Seconding the motion, Hon. Aliyu Abdurrahman Haruna (Kawo), said the leadership of the House has been preaching togetherness, and that if there is anyone who tries to create problem, proper action will be taken against that person.

The speaker of the House, Alhaji Aminu Abdullahi Shagali announced their suspension till further notice.

The suspension almost turned the House into chaos as both Dr. Bityong Yakubu Nkom and Hon. Danladi Angulu Kwasu refused to go out as directed by the Speaker saying they were not told the offence they committed which led to their suspension and that they did not face any disciplinary committee.

The argument led to the speaker adjourning the day’s sitting abruptly.

When newsmen approached the suspended members, Hon Bityong said he would get back to them while Hon Danladi Angulu said there are laid down rules before anyone is suspended as we are living in a democratic dispensation.
