Story from Yakubu VENTIM, Jos

A group of lawmakers loyal to the supposedly impeached Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Honourable Abok Ayuba, gained access to the Assembly complex, as early as 6 am on Monday.

Youths were also seen around the Complex protesting the illegal removal of the former House Speaker, demanding the reversal.

The youths were carrying placards bearing inscriptions in support of the impeached speaker.

Honourable Ayuba was impeached Thursday 28 October after a vote of no confidence by a few members of the Assembly at the plenary was passed.

He was immediately replaced by Rt. Hon. Yakubu Sanda representing Pengana constituency of Bassa Local Government Area.

The lawmakers expressed dissatisfaction on how the “unlawful impeachment” was carried out and appealed to the President of Nigeria and well-meaning Nigerians to intervene on the matter.

Below is the list of lawmakers who attended the meeting at the Complex:

  1. Rt. Hon Abok Nuhu Ayuba – Jos East
  2. Hon Philip Dasun – Pankshin North
