BREAKING: Plateau Assembly declares former speaker’s seat vacant for defecting to PDP

The Plateau State House of Assembly on Tuesday declared the seat of the immediate past Speaker of the House, Hon Abok Ayuba, vacant following his defection to the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The decision was made at plenary at the House’s temporary chamber (old Government House) in Jos.

Speaker of the House, RT. Hon Yakubu Sanda, who presided over plenary, stated that the House’s decision was prompted by a letter from the Plateau State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) urging the Speaker to declare Abok’s seat vacant following his defection from the APC to the PDP, which is a violation of Section 109 (1) of the Nigerian Constitution.

Recall that the former Speaker had dumped the ruling APC last weekend for the PDP.

Abok, who represents Jos East Constituency, had been having a frosty relationship with the ruling APC in the state since he was purportedly impeached five months ago by eight members of the House.

Meantime, the House has also declared the seat of the immediate past member representing Irigwe/Rukuba State Constituency Hon. Musa Agah vacant.

Agah last month won the Jos North/Bassa Federal Constituency bye-election, which left the seat vacant.
