Kaduna Assembly suspends three lawmakers, declares ex-speaker’s seat vacant.

A statement by the Chief of Staff to the Speaker, Haruna Sambo, explained that their suspension (of the Kaduna Lawmakers) was extended with 12 months.

“The House has extended the suspension of the three members and issued suspension to another, Salisu Isa, representing Magajin Gari,” he said.

The statement listed Mukhtar Hazo and Nuhu Shadalafiya, both former deputy speakers, and Yusuf Liman as those to serve another 12 months’ suspension.

It, however, declared the seat of the former speaker, Aminu Shagali, vacant.

The Assembly said such a move became imperative following the former speaker’s longtime absence from the hallowed chamber.
