The Kano State House of Assembly has suspended five of its members for issues said to be bordering around misconduct and violation of the rules of the House.
The announcement was made by the Speaker of House, Abdulazeez Gafasa, at the commencement of sitting of the Assembly on Monday. He stated that “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.”
It was gathered that the five members were slammed with the suspension due to a fracas that occurred last week at the House.
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.
According to Gafasa, the suspended members violently and even attempted to snatch away the mace in what he described as a “clear attempt to sabotage the sitting of the House.”
