Zulum losing no sleep over make-believe plans of Borno lawmakers impeaching him

Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno says he is not losing sleep over reports that the state’s lawmakers planned to impeach him.

The Chief of Staff to the governor, Hussaini Marte, said Mr Zulum did not attach any seriousness to the House of Assembly’s rumoured impeachment.

The assembly had, on Friday, conducted an extraordinary session to debunk the speculation that it was planning to impeach the governor.

Mr Marte made the governor’s position known while addressing lawmakers and other dignitaries at the launch of the Ninth Assembly Magazine and Awards Presentation, organised by the Northern Borno Students’ Association, in collaboration with the assembly.

He stated that the governor had a cordial working relationship with the assembly and knew that the lawmakers would not contemplate such a thing.

“The assembly has done exemplary well in terms of relationship with the executive and passage of bills. I have never seen a house working so closely with the executive in the history of Nigeria like this ninth assembly,” Mr explained.

“What happened (impeachment rumours) is most unfortunate. I know it’s just mere mischief by someone to cause confusion.

“That person will not succeed, and he has not succeeded. I want to inform all members of the assembly that His Excellency has not taken that seriously, as he believes you can’t do anything like that,” Marte asserted.
