The Kaduna state House of Assembly has initiated impeachment proceedings against the Speaker and other principal officers for incompetence and alleged gross misconduct.

The Speaker, Usman Gangara allegedly has a running battle with some lawmakers who had been plotting to remove him from office due to his disloyalty to the executive arm of government and running a divided administration.

The members, who were supposed to resume sitting Thursday after a two-month recession, insisted that the speaker must resign before they can commence the day’s plenary.

Gangara then summoned members to his office for an emergency closed door meeting to resolve issues brought against him.

Thereafter, the spokesman of the House, Yakubu Yusuf addressed journalist saying that the full details on the change in the house leadership would be made public soon.

However, the members could not elect a new speaker and other principal officers due to their inability to settle on a particular candidate.
