No court order can stop Deputy Governor’s impeachment – Zamfara Assembly

Zamfara State House of Assembly has vowed that no court order can stop it from impeaching Deputy Governor of the state, Barr. Mahdi Aliyu Gusau.

Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Alhaji Shamsudeen Bosko said this on Tuesday February 15, saying the impeachment process was in line with Section 188(5)(7) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, “therefore no court can stop” it adding that 18 of the 24 legislators voted in favour of the motion at plenary when allegations of financial misconduct, insubordination and failure to perform assigned duties were brought before the house.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had fixed March 10 for hearing of a suit by the deputy governor, seeking to stop his impeachment by the State House of Assembly.
