Confusion Rocks Zaria Local Govt As Councillors Suspend Speaker

Governor el-Rufai

Confusion has rocked Councillors of Zaria Local Government area of  Kaduna State over an impeachment and suspension threat. 

Seven councillors had threatened to impeach the Council Chairman,  Engr Aliyu Ibrahim Idris  Magani Sai Da Gwaji some few months back on allegations that he is running the local government as his personal property.
Their action generated tension but they failed to achieve their mission because they violated the laws as they sat without the Clerk and they went and forcefully with security personnel and picked the Personal Assistant to the Council Secretary in his house and brought him to office to collect and sign the impeachment notice.
But on Wednesday February 19, the same seven councillors have announced the suspension of their Speaker, Hon. Hashimu Bako over incompetency to lead them. 
The suspension was done without the Clerk as they did on the Council Chairman  and  they forgot that the Clerk is a key player in the legislation of the House. 
Our reporter in the area reports that at about 8.30 pm, the seven councillors were seen hanging at the local government secretariat  waiting to see the council chairman  whom they don’t consider as the chairman.
