Kaduna Assembly dismisses report of impeachment plot against Gov El-Rufai




The Kaduna State House of Assembly on Sunday dismissed the report of an impeachment plot against Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

A report emerged on social media late on Saturday night that the parliament had started the impeachment process against the governor over alleged corruption.

However, in a statement issued by his media aide, Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani, the Speaker of the Assembly, Hon. Yusuf Zailani, urged Nigerians to disregard the report.

He described the report as the handiwork of mischief-makers who were not comfortable with the harmonious working relationship between the executive and legislature in the state.

“The report which also said the relationship between the governor and the Speaker of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Yusuf Zailani, has been frosty for quite some time now is also nothing but the figment of the imagination of the writer and perhaps their sponsors,” Zailani added.
