•Kano Speaker, Abdullahi Yusuf Ata

Members of Kano State House of Assembly have set out to impeach Speaker of the house, Alhaji Abdullahi Yusuf Ata, newsmen learnt.

A reliable source in the house confided Daily Trust that as at yesterday's night 21 lawmakers have duly signed in support of the speaker's impeachment.

 The source confirmed that already the principal officers of the house had been impeached having got the 21 lawmakers signed for their impeachment.

 "We have already impeached the principal officers by having 21 lawmakers signed for their impeachment and we are needing only six members to make the requirement of 2/3 to impeach the speaker."

 Asked on why the lawmakers resolved to impeach the leaders of the house, the source said, "The reasons are many but the major one is incompetence. The speaker has completely localized the house.

 "We cannot sit until after 2pm and even at that things are not moving as expected. We cannot just continue like that because we are representing our constituents."

 It would be recalled that Abdullahi Ata succeeded Alhaji Kabiru Alhasssan Rurum, who resigned from office around June year following an allegation of corruption against him. (Daily Trust)
