The Yobe State House of Assembly on Thursday dismissed insinuations on the plot to impeach Governor Mai Mala Buni.
A report emerged during the week that the lawmakers had concluded the plan to impeach the erstwhile interim chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for maladministration.
The Vice Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Alhaji Abdullahi Bazuwa, who made the clarifications in a chat with journalists Damaturu, dismissed the report and viral video clips on the purported impeachment plot as false and misleading.
Bazuwa said the House was taking steps to ensure that those behind the publications were brought to book.
He said: “As an assembly, we are saying that there is no impeachment plot against the governor.
“We categorically state that the information being circulated is false, baseless, and malicious.
“The Assembly reiterates its commitment to making laws that will promote good governance and service delivery in the state.”
Bazuwa stressed that the Assembly would continue to ensure checks and balances in the discharge of its constitutional mandate.
