This occurred at an unusual sitting presided over by the Deputy Speaker of the House, Hon. Saleh Yipmong.
Hon. Yakubu Sanda representing Pengana Constituency is now the new Speaker.
DAILY POST recalls that the Speaker has been under fire since the unrest that bedeviled some communities in Jos North and Bassa LGA, where several people were killed, many injured and others displaced from their ancestral homes.
The House of Assembly had given the Governor of the State a two-week ultimatum to take action on the resolutions forwarded to him on “security matters and how to restore peace in the State.”
The House also called on the Governor to come up with a statement defending the citizenry in the wake of the myriad of security challenges bedeviling the State.
DAILY POST gathered that the eight members gained access to the House as early as 6am to carry out the act.
They operated under the heavy presence of armed security personnel.
The lawmakers attempted to impeach the Speaker on Wednesday night but could not succeed.
Hon. Nanbol Daniel, (PDP, Langtang North Central) said that the impeachment would not hold because it did not follow the House rules on impeachment of speaker and deputy speaker.
DAILY POST also recalls that there was petition making the rounds on social media in the early hours of Wednesday by a group under the aegis of Youths Rights Against Corruption (YRAC) accusing the Speaker of corruption.
YRAC said it has submitted a petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against the Speaker, accusing him of several allegations, including abuse of office and financial misappropriation.
The group also demanded that the Speaker should immediately step down from his position pending the completion of investigation.
Executive Director, YRAC Comrade Abednego Musa, signed the petition titled: “Petition Against Plateau State House of Assembly Speaker, Nuhu Abok Ayuba, On Gross Financial Misconduct, Criminal Breach Of Public Trust And Abuse Of Office”.
The embattled Speaker is yet to respond to the development.
