Six weeks to the governorship election in Adamawa State, the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mr Sadiq Ibrahim Dasin, has been impeached by a unanimous decision of 24 out of the 25 members of the assembly.

Moving the motion for his impeachment, the member representing Gombi constituency, Mr Jerry Kumdisi, of the opposition Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), said the assembly required a change of leadership with immediate effect so as to have a clear direction of how the state was being governed, since the governorship election was for approaching.

The motion, which was unanimously adopted by the members, led to the removal of the speaker, while the deputy Speaker, Mrs Wale Fwah, was said to have tactically stepped aside for fear of being impeached.
