Plateau Assembly Speaker ‘resumes office’ after Court Order

by Christiana Gokyo, Jos

Following a reinstatement (on Monday) by court judgment of the Plateau State House of Assembly Speaker, Nuhu Ayuba Abok, the speaker has on Tuesday resumed office.

At the House on Tuesday, the Speaker was in company of some People’s Democratic Party (PDP) members, as he arrived the State House of Assembly complex, around 9:00am, and took his seat in the office of the speaker.

While appreciating God and the security agencies for maintaining peace and order, the speaker assured that he is back to work for peace and development of the state.

The Assembly atmosphere at the complex was calm with the presence of heavy security personnel at the entrance, with few staff in the offices.

Our correspondent also learnt that only the opposition PDP members are in the House, with two APC members of Shendam and Bokkos constituency.

The Speaker expressed optimism that his security details will be restored as the legislators held plenary, and called on Yakubu Sanda and other House members to join hands with him and work for the progress of the state.

It could be recalled that Justice Nafisa L. Musa of the Plateau State High Court sitting in Jos division, had on Monday passed a judgment for the reinstatement of Abok Ayuba, who was impeached in November, 2021.

Meanwhile, the senator representing Plateau North senatorial district in the Senate, Istifanus Gyang, has welcome the verdict of Court that reinstated Rt Hon Abok as Speaker Plateau State House of Assembly.

Also, Sen. Istifanus Gyang has described the judgment as a “triumph for the rule of law and common sense,” saying, the verdict has vindicated Rt Hon Abok and restored the dignity of the State Assembly “from Executive tyranny and reckless legislative partisanship.”

It would be recalled that at the onset of the illegal and unconstitutional impeachment of Speaker Abok, Senator Gyang brought the matter before the Nigerian Senate in Plenary, pointing to Executive interference and manipulation for orchestrating the unfortunate illegality.
