Al-Makura: Drama as 4 Assembly members attempt to snatch Mace

By Abel Daniel

LAFIA — There was drama at the Nasarawa State House of Assembly, yesterday, when four members of the Assembly tried to snatch the mace to stall the adoption of the motion asking the state Chief Judge to constitute a seven-man panel to probe allegations of gross misconduct against Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura.

This was even as heavily armed policemen and Armored Personnel Carriers were stationed at strategic places as well as within the Assembly premises and the road leading to it.

However, members of the House, who met for 20 minutes later, directed the state Chief Judge, Justice Suleiman Dikko to constitute a seven-man investigative panel to probe allegations of gross misconduct levelled against Governor Umaru Al-Makura.

The motion asking Justice Dikko to set up the panel was moved by the Majority Leader of the House, Godiya Akwashiki (PDP- Udege/Loko) in line with the provision of the 1999 Constitution as amended and seconded by Mohammed Baba-Ibaku (PDP- Nasarawa Eggon West).

When the motion was put into vote by the Speaker, Musa Ahmed, 20 of the 24 members voted in favour, while the four APC lawmakers opposed it.

The House, thereafter, directed the Clerk of the Assembly, Mr Ego Maikeffi, to urgently communicate its decision to the Chief Judge, pointing out that the panel has one week to submit its report.

Meanwhile, the protests against Al-Makura’s planned impeachment which erupted in several parts of the state, following the announcement about two weeks ago has fizzled out with the residents now anxiously awaiting the outcome of the impeachment moves.

This came as the Senior Special Assistant to the governor on Public Affairs, Malam Abdulhamid Kwarra, has insisted that Al-Makura was yet to be served with the ‘purported’ impeachment notice, assuring that Al-Makura would respond appropriately as soon as he received the notice.
