By KATO P. LADAN, Kaduna

Contrary to earlier rumours that the Kaduna State House of Assembly on Wednesday was threatening to impeach the Speaker Zailani Yusuf, the deputy Speaker, Alhaji Mukhtar Isa Hazo has been impeached and a new deputy, Hon. Isaac Auta, representing Kauru Constituency has been elected.

The emergence of the new Deputy Speaker came  shortly after 24 members of the Assembly passed vote of no confidence on the former Deputy Speaker, Hon. Mukhtar Isa Hazo and impeached him.

Auta’s emergency and swearing in was followed with a rowdy session, as a member attempted to steal the maze.

Hon. Auta was immediately sworn in by the Clerk of the Assembly, who administered oaths of office and allegiance on him.

The reasons behind the impeachment of the Deputy Speaker were still unknown as at time of filing this report.

Meanwhile, shortly after the swearing in, member representing Makera Constituency, Hon. Liman Dahiru broke into the floor of the Assembly and seized the maze.

However, before he could make his way out of the chamber, he was grabbed by the Sergeant at Arms, while other members quickly rushed in to retrieve the maze from him.

The plenary thereafter ended in a rowdy session, while the aggrieved member, Dahiru Liman was dragged out of the chamber.

Liman who had his dress torn, was later seen outside the assembly chamber displaying anger over the the impeachment of Hon. Hazo.
