Nasarawa Assembly shuts down due to COVID-19 fears

The Nasarawa State House of Assembly on Monday suspended the Chairman of Nasarawa local government area of the state, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Ottos, for alleged insubordination.

The House also suspended the Deputy Chairman of Karu LGA, Lawal Yakubu Karshi, over the same allegation.

The Speaker of the House, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, announced this after the Chairman of the House Committee on Local Government, Alhaji Mohammed Alkali, moved a motion on the activities of the affected council officials at an emergency sitting in Lafia.

Abdullahi alleged that the local council chiefs abandoned their official duties to attend a court case involving former Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Aliyu Ahmed.
