Kaduna Assembly lifts suspension on ex-deputy speaker
The Kaduna State House of Assembly has lifted the suspension of its former deputy speaker, Alhaji Muktar Isa-Hazo, member representing Basawa constituency.
Isa-Hazo and three other members have been on suspension for over a year.
The decision followed a motion moved by Alhaji Ahmad Muhammad, member representing Zaria Kewaye constituency during plenary, on Wednesday in Kaduna,
Muhammad said, “I stand before you to refresh your memory that sometime in April last year, I raised a motion on the suspension of four members of the assembly.
“Namely, Alhaji Mukhtar Isa Hazo, former deputy speaker, Salisu Isa, member representing Magajin Gari constituency, Alhaji Yusuf Liman of Makera/Kakuri and Mr Nuhu Goroh Shadalafiya, representing Kagarko constituency.
“I am here today, to plead with the honourable speaker and the honourable members of the house on behalf of one of them, Alhaj Mukhtar Isa-Hazo of Basawa constituency, who has been pleading publicly more than once and on several occasions.
“Because of the remorse he showed, I am pleading with the speaker to look into his matter to recall him back to the chamber so as to continue with his legislative duty.”
