Speaker, Kaduna State House of Assembly (KDHA), Usman Gangara (PDP Giwa East), and his deputy Dr. Dogara Mato (PDP Lere) have been impeached.

The former Speaker had survived two attempts and time given for time to voluntary resigned had elapsed.

Interim Speaker  Philimon Gidan Mana, (PDP Makera), who presided after the impeachment, announced the election of Shehu Usman Tahir,  (PDP Giwa West) and Peter Adamu (PDP Kagarko) as  Speaker and Deputy Speaker respectively.

Kantiok Irimiya Isiaku (PDP Zonkwa) moved for the impeachment and was seconded by Yakubu Yusuf, APC Zaria Kewaye.

The eight principal officers who were absent at the sitting were removed and all standing committees were dissolved by the new Speaker.

News Express reports that 19 out of 34 members of the assembly agreed to the impeachment.

“The quorum of members required for the impeachment is 13, but the house had 19,” the new Speaker said in an interview with newsmen.

He denied any influence for the change of leadership by the Vice President, Architect Namadi Sambo.
