Kaura said, “The house found him guilty of the offences levelled against him which were submitted earlier today in the House and subsequently read at the floor of the chamber by the Speaker of the House, Rt Hon Nasiru Mu’azu Magarya.
“Magarya told the plenary that the committee set up to investigate the former Deputy Governor found him guilty of all the charges levelled against him and directed his colleagues to proceed with individual voting of affirmation for the Deputy Governor to be impeached as required by the law.”
“20 out of 22 members voted in favour of the impeachment while the only PDP member of the House, Hon. Salihu Usman Zurmi, was conspicuously absent during today’s plenary”
This development comes after Gusau refused to defect with the State governor, Bello Matawalle from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle has appointed Senator Hassan Mohammed Nasiha Gusau as Deputy Governor in replacement of Mahdi Aliyu Gusau.
Hassan Nasiha represented the Zamfara Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly before being appointed.
