|BREAKING: Kano Assembly Speaker Resigns, Save From Impeachment by SaAbbas(m): 12:47pm On Jul 03, 2017|
By Mustapha Usman
The Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, Kabiru Rurum, on Monday resigned to save himself from imminent impeachment.
On Sunday, DAILY NIGERIAN exclusively reported that the Speaker would be impeached Monday in an overwhelming vote of no confidence.
Mr Rurum was accused by the members of cornering N100million allegedly given to them by billionaire businessman, Aliko Dangote, to shelve the probe of Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.
The Speaker was also accused of unilaterally approving the governor’s request to be collecting N9billion monthly overdraft at 15 percent interest rate without subjecting the matter to debate before the Assembly.
“Apart from the Dangote issue and all other issues, the Speaker committed an impeachable offense of giving approval to the Executive without the endorsement of the House.
DAILY NIGERIAN reported on June 21 that no fewer than 32 out of the 40 members of the Kano State House of Assembly signed for the impeachment of Mr Rurum, following mounting allegations of corruption, extortion and high-handedness
“The governor wrote to us seeking permission as required by law to be borrowing huge amount of money monthly. Instead of the Speaker to read the letter before the plenary, he sat on it and single-handedly granted approval to the governor.
