The Kaduna State House of Assembly has suspended three of its members from all activities in the house for a nine month duration for causing disaffection among members and denigrating the office of the deputy speaker.
Five other members were also reprimanded by the Assembly, with a demand for a written and published apology to the assembly in a national daily within a week.
According to reports from the News Agency of Nigeria, the assembly decided the plenary yesterday after the adoption of the report of the committee which investigated the noisy disorderly quarrel that occurred during its sitting on June 11.
The committee which was headed by Shehu Yunusa, had announced the suspension and reprimand of the affected members following the Assembly’s Code of Conduct.
The suspended members include the deputy speaker representing Basawa constituency Mukhtar Isa-Hazo, Nuhu Goroh-Shadalafiya of Kagarko constituency and Yusuf Liman-Dahiru, Kakuri/Makera constituency.
