Yobe Speaker Impeached Or Resigns?
By Mustapha Barau Damaturu
23 members of the Yobe State House of Assembly have unanimously impeached the Speaker of the Assembly, Adamu Dalah Dogo over allegations of high handedness, impunity, financial misappropriation and total disregard to the flight of the lawmakers.
Consequently, Member representing Machina constituency, Zannah Ali Machina was unanimously elected as the new Speaker of the House by the majority of the legislatures.
This is the first time a Speaker of the House is impeached in the history of the State.
But in a swift reaction, the impeached speaker, Adamu Dala Dogo said, he voluntarily resigned his position on personal ground to pave way for a new leadership to be elected
