Politics Impeachment: We’re Backing our Gov –Borno Speaker -The Sun



Amidst speculations of an impeachment plan against Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled House of Assembly, the Speaker, Abdulkareem Lawan, said majority of the legislators are backing the governor.

Lawan, who spoke to journalists on phone from Saudi Arabia, where he had gone to perform the lesser hajj (Umrah), said the leadership of the House and more than two-thirds of its members were behind Governor Shettima, adding that the Assembly was more concerned about how to return peace to the troubled state.

He said the claim by ‎the House’s Majority Leader, Idrissa Jidda, that most members were defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with former governor Ali Modu Sheriff was a personal opinion, which did not reflect the position of the leadership and other members.
