Mahdi Gusau, the deputy governor of Zamfara state, had been reportedly impeached by lawmakers in the State House of Assembly, on Wednesday.
This is reportedly coming following the report of the committee set up by the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Kulu Aliyu, to probe the deputy governor.
According to reports, those in the committee include Justice Halidu Tanko-Soba as Chairman, with Oladipo Okpeseyi (SAN), as Deputy Chairman and Abdul-Atadoga Ibrahim (SAN), Hussaini Zakariyau, (SAN), Amina Tanimu-Marafa, Alhaji Sani Mande, and Ahmad Buhari-Rabah.
It was noted that Okpeseyi who handed the report to the Speaker of the Assembly, Honorable Nasiru Muazu Magarya, made it known that only two copies were produced and that the committee was not authorized to speak about it.
However, after the report was read to the House by the Speaker, 20 out of 24 members reportedly voted for the deputy governor’s removal.
