BAUCHI ASSEMBLY CRISIS: Faction declares support for Speaker

Another faction in the ongoing leadership crisis rocking the Bauchi State House of Assembly has declared its support and loyalty to the embattled Speaker of the Assembly, Abubakar Y Suleiman, saying he remains the Speaker, IgbereTV reports

Speaking on behalf of the members loyal to the Speaker, member representing Kirfi, Abdulkadir Umar Dewu called on people of the state to remain calm, maintaining that Abubakar Sulaiman remains the Speaker of the House assuring that nothing will happen to him.

Speaking in Bauchi late Wednesday evening, he said that “It’s not true that 22 members of the Bauchi State House of Assembly passed vote of No confidence’ on leadership describing the claim as untrue.

Dewu was responding to reports that 22 members recently sat and passed a vote of No confidence on the leadership of the House, asking it to resign honorably or get impeached.

He expressed concerns on the allegations made by the 22 members of the Assembly boasting that those behind the plot will never get the constitutional required number to execute their plans.

According to him, “The assertion made by the members on the alleged claims that 22 members out of the 31 members of the Assembly  have signed a letter calling for the resignation of the Rt. Speaker of the Bauchi state assembly, Abubakar Y. Sulaiman and the other Honorable members of the house came to me as a surprise”.

He explained that, “It came to me as a surprise and I was a little bit confused when I heard about it. All I know is that the Bauchi State House of Assembly comprise of 31 members of which I know 9 of us are presently in Saudi Arabia for Hajj and one of us went to Jerusalem for Christian pilgrimage and I think he only came back yesterday”.

The Lawmaker who explained that a lot of members are not with the aggrieved ones, wondered how and where they came up with that number
