Fresh from a two-month recess, the Kano State House of Assembly has impeached its Speaker, Abdullahi Ata.
The impeachment motion was raised on Monday by Labaran Madari, the member representing Warawa Constituency, and was seconded by Abdullahi Muhammed, the only Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker in the assembly.
Twenty-four members of the assembly commenced impeachment proceedings against Ata in May and would have succeeded but for the intervention of Abdullahi ganduje, Governor of the state.
Ata was accused of not running the house like his private fiefdom.
