Kaduna State House of Assembly has suspended one of its members, Dr Shehu Adamu for alleging that 18 members of the House received N10 million bribe each to impeach the Speaker, Mu’azu Usman Gangara and other principal officers of the assembly.
Mr Philemon Usman Gidan-Mana, the chairman of the committee on education, ethics and privilege, while presenting the report of the suspension said after three summonses to the defendants, he failed to appear to defend himself and bluntly indicated that he would not appear before the committee.
Gidan said, “the standing penalties for misconduct by a member would result in reprimand or demotion, withdrawal of privileges and expulsion from the House.”
Dr Shehu Adamu on September 23, 2013, had in an interview in the electronic media and national dailies, accused members of the House of collecting N10million each to remove the leadership of the assembly.
He has however been handed a 6 months suspension by the house.
