Isah Idris, speaker of the Jigawa State House of Assembly has been impeached.

 

The speaker was impeached by 20 out of 30 members of the house that voted in what appeared to be an emergency sitting today.

 

A former speaker Idris Garba, better known as Kareka, was unanimously voted in as the new speaker of the house shortly after Idris’ impeachment.

 

The impeachment of Idris comes in the wake of the destruction of the mace by lawmakers, after engaging in a fight over leadership.
