The Majority and Deputy Minority leader of the Niger State House of Assembly has been impeached by members of the house over alleged issues affecting the smooth running of the House.

The leaders of the house that were affected are Honorable Musa Suleiman, representing Magama constituency and Hon. Andrew Danjuma Jagaba, Munya constituency.

Hon. Jibrin Ndagi Baba, while raising the motion for the removal of the two lawmakers during the House plenary said the members of the house no longer have confidence in them.

He told the House, “Having consulted with my colleagues on the issues affecting the smooth running of this House, we no longer have confidence in the House leader and deputy leader.”

“I then move that the two officers be removed. And, I so move.”

Following the call for their removal, members of the house immediately nominated Hon. Mohammed Abbah Bala, Borgu constituency as the new Majority Leader and Hon. Binta Manmman, Gurara constituency as Deputy Minority Leader of the House.
