Jigawa Assembly resolves crisis, passes vote of confidence on speaker Lagos prophet drowns during Valentine’s Day beach hangout

Jigawa House of Assembly has resolved its internal crisis as lawmakers endorsed the Speaker, Haruna Aliyu in a unanimous vote of confidence on Wednesday.

The House, which had been grappling with internal disagreements and tension in recent weeks, saw a pivotal moment as members came together to affirm their trust in Speaker Haruna Aliyu’s leadership.

There was a move by some of the state Assembly members to impeach the speaker over alleged bad leadership.

The vote of confidence passed with overwhelming support, signifies a collective commitment to stability and unity within the legislative body.

The member representing Mallam/Madori Local Government Area, Hamza Ibrahim, “moved the motion for the vote and was seconded by the member representing Garki Local Government Area, Abdu Ila.”

Ibrahim said, “The leadership of the Eight Assembly, under Speaker Aliyu, was performing its constitutional responsibilities and complementing the state government’s effort to develop the state.

“The atmosphere in the assembly hall shifted from uncertainty to a sense of solidarity as legislators expressed determination to work cohesively for the greater good of Jigawa State.”

Speaker Aliyu appreciated the members for the vote of confidence and emphasised the importance of unity in addressing the challenges facing the state.

He pledged to continue working tirelessly to uphold the principles of democracy and serve the interests of the people.

The Jigawa State House of Assembly suspended three local government council chairmen for allegedly travelling outside the country without seeking permission from the state executive or legislature last November.

The suspended chairmen are Mubarak Ahmed of Yankwashi LGA, Rufai Sunusi, Gumel LGA, and Umar Baffa of Birniwa LGA, who was said to have travelled to Rwanda.

The House took the decision after the Chairman of the Committee on Local Government Affairs, AminuTsubut, presented a motion for the suspension of the affected council chairmen.
