Plateau House of Assembly (PLHA) on Tuesday declared the seat of the lawmaker vacant following his defection to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the All Progressives Congress (APC)
The incumbent Speaker of House, Hon. Yakubu Sanda, who declared Abok’s seat vacant on Tuesday said the decision was as a result of a letter from the State chapter of the APC to the PDP, contrary to Section 109(1) of The Nigerian constitution.
Abok, who represents the Jos East constituency had been having a frosty relationship with the ruling APC in the State since he was purportedly impeached five months ago by eight members of the House.
The former had last weekend dumped the APC for PDP following his recent impeachment by the Assembly.
