Kaduna Assembly Speaker Denies Plans To Impeach Gov El-Rufai




A rumoured move to impeach Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai has been debunked by the Speaker of state House of Assembly, Yusuf Zailani.

The rumour was denied in a statement released by the spokesman for the Speaker, Ibrahim Danfulani.

The statement dismissed the claim and asked members of the public to disregard such information, adding that the origin of the report would be thoroughly investigated to bring the perpetrators to book to serve as a deterrent to others.

“The attention of the Speaker, Kaduna State House of Assembly, has been drawn to reports circulating on social platforms of purported impeachment moves against Governor El-Rufai over corruption allegations.

“This is simply the handiwork of opposition and enemies of progress of the relationship between the legislative arm of government and the executive, apparently, to create crises between the two arms of government and deny the good people of Kaduna the dividends of democracy they get courtesy of the good working relationship between the executive and the legislature,” he stated.

The report had claimed that the purported plans to impeach the governor stemmed from the frosty relationship between the governor and the speaker.

“It is also untrue that the state lawmakers are investigating the expenditures of all the ministries, agencies and parastatals of the state government. I, therefore, wish to state categorically that the entire report is maliciously concocted to misinform the general public and should be disregarded in its entirety.

“Let it be noted that the relationship between the legislature and executive is cordial and is expected not only to remain so but be improved upon,” Danfulani said.
