Just In! Kano Assembly Impeaches Speaker

The Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, Abdullahi Atta, has been impeached. A new speaker, Alhassan Rurum was immediately sworn in.  About 27 lawmakers this morning signed the impeachment notice which was served to the Speaker upon his arrival at the House.

The former Speaker is being accused of incompetence, corruption, and failure to carry other members of the Assembly along.

The Major Leader of the House has also been impeached and replaced with Bappa Babba, while Kabiru Hassan is the new Deputy Majority Leader and Abdulrahaman Madari as the Chief Whip.

The political train has hit Kano too. Which state is next?
