No court order can stop Deputy Governor

The Zamfara State House of Assembly has said 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 who disclosed this on Tuesday February 15, maintained that 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. 


Bosko noted 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.


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