The 22 members of the Bauchi State House of Assembly have demanded the immediate resignation of the Speaker of the House Rt Hon Abubakar Sulamain and other principal officers of the house.
This is coming after the members on Friday passed a vote of no confidence on the entire leadership structure of the house.
The aggrieved lawmakers also demanded the immediate resignation of the entire leadership of the house, threatening that failure to do so, will compel them to impeach their leaders.
Deputy Majority Leader of the House Hon Babale Abubakar who addressed journalists at the end of their meeting at the complex of the Assembly said even though he is a party to the current leadership structure of the house, it became imperative to him to vanguard for change. “After our meeting held today, Friday, 1st July 2022, 22 members of the Bauchi State House of Assembly resolved to pass a vote of no confidence on the leadership of the House from today”.
“We consider that as it is today, there is no leadership in the State House of Assembly, I am among the leaders but we feel that it is the right time and we must do it. We have therefore passed a vote of no confidence on all the leaders of the Bauchi State House of Assembly.
“We are calling on the leaders of the Bauchi State House of Assembly to honourably tender their resignation letters to the Clerk of the Assembly. That will allow the Honorable House the opportunity to elect its leaders in order to forge ahead” he said.
The resignation notice is coming at a time when the Speaker of the House Hon Abubakar Sulaiman who doubled as Speaker of the Conference of Speakers of Nigeria was away in Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage as this Deputy Amirul Hajj Bauchi State.
