Panic has gripped members of the Kano State House of Assembly following the resignation of President Abdulaziz Gafasa and House Majority Leader Kabiru Dashi.
It turned out that the duo had resigned to avoid impeachment. DAILY NIGERIAN securely gathered that 35 of 40 Assembly members signed to remove the Speaker and Leader of the House of Representatives early Tuesday morning.
Although the speaker and leader of the House of Representatives did not justify their resignation with their handwritten letters circulated on social media, the newspaper learned that they resigned with honor after they learned of the impeachment plan at a plenary session on Tuesday.
A Rep, who spoke to DAILY NIGERIAN on condition of anonymity, said the duo only serves the interests of the governor, not the members.“We opposed them because of their inability to negotiate the welfare of the House before the Governor.
Members have not received electoral payments in the past 10 months, and many of our rights are pending. The staff allowance for equipment was also not paid for one year “, He said.
According to him, the House of Representatives will elect a member representing the Makoda constituency, Khamisu Chidari, and a member representing the Warawa constituency, Labaran Madari, to replace the president and majority leader, respectively, today.
