By Kenneth Tobi
The Kano State House Assembly has suspended five of its members for six months for misconduct.
The speaker of the house, Abdulazeez Gafasa announced this at the resumption of the Assembly’s sitting on Monday.
According to Gafasa, the affected members were suspended for misconduct and violation of the rules of the house.
“The five members were suspended for violating the rules of the house especially Order IV Sub 4 a, b, d and e disrupted the sittings of the house and prevented proceedings from going on.
“They behaved violently and even attempted to snatch away the mace in a clear attempt to sabotage the setting of the house,” Gafasa said.
The suspended members include Garba Yau Gwarmai representing Kunchi/Tsanyawa Constituency, Labaran Abdul Madari representing Warawa Constituency, Isyaku Ali Danja representing Gezawa Constituency, Mohammed Bello representing Rimingado/Tofa constituency and Salisu Ahmed Gwamgwazo representing Kano Municipal respectively.
Recall that at the resumption of the house on Monday 9th of September, some members attempted to disrupt the sitting during the submission of a report by the house committee saddled with the responsibility to investigate Sanusi (then Emir). The situation led to a free for all combat which forced the house to adjourn its sitting.
