Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong on Saturday cleared the air on the insinuation making rounds in the social media and elsewhere alleging that he has a hand in the impeachment of former Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Rt.

Hon. Nuhu Abok Ayuba.

Governor Lalong while responding to a submission by a Jos-based Christian cleric Prophet Isa El-Buba at the Annual Thanksgiving Service of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) held at the Jesus Power Crusaders International Assembly ,Jos where the cleric asked the Governor to restore stability in the House after the recent impeachment of the former Speaker and the election of Rt. Hon. Yakubu Sanda.

Lalong said, “the House of Assembly is an autonomous body that runs its affairs independently. You will recall that I was the first Governor in Nigeria to sign into law the Autonomy Bill when it was passed. I did that because of my passion for democratic growth and the strengthening of the Institution. Having served as a Speaker who was also impeached, I have no hand in the running of the House, not to talk of the change of its leadership. They run their affairs and do as they wish based on their rules and the law”.

The Governor also advised the citizens particularly the leaders of thought to always verify information and also engage before taking a position on any matter such as the impeachment story that has been widely misrepresented.

He advised those who have concerns to reach out to the members and get the complete picture before reaching conclusions. He called for prayers and support for those in authority.
