House Of Reps Take Over Kogi Assembly

The House of Representatives on Wednesday, took over the functions of the Kogi State House of Assembly over the crisis that engulfed the assembly in the last one month.

This is even as it called on the Inspector General of Police Solomon Arase to immediately seal off the assembly since the House has taken over its functions.

In taking the decision at plenary, the House said its action was in line with the provision of Section 11 (4) of the 1999 Constitution, which says the National Assembly could take over the functions of any state assembly that is enmeshed in crisis.

Recall that that five members of the Kogi assembly purportedly impeached the speaker Momoh Jimoh Lawal and elected Umar Imam as new speaker.

The lower chamber’s action will take effect as soon as the Senate concurs. Vanguard
