Social sharing

The Kaduna State House of Assembly has elected Hon. Isaac Auta representing Kauru Constituency as the new Deputy Speaker.

The emergence of Auta follows the impeachment of the former Deputy Speaker, Hon. Mukhtar Isa Hazo on Thursday after 24 members of the Assembly passed a vote of no confidence in him.

Auta was immediately sworn in by the Clerk of the Assembly, who administered oaths of office and allegiance on him.

Shortly after the swearing-in, member representing Makera Constituency, Hon. Liman Dahiru, broke into the floor of the Assembly and seized the maze.

However before he could make his way out of the chamber, he was grabbed by the Sergeant at Arm while other members quickly rushed in to retrieve the maze from him.

The plenary thereafter ended in a rowdy session while the aggrieved member, Dahiru Liman was dragged out of the chamber.

Liman, who had his dress torn, was later seen outside the Assembly Chamber displaying anger over the impeachment of Hazo.
