PDP to challenge impeachment of Zamfara deputy governor in court | The Guardian Nigeria News


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is working on plans to challenge the impeachment of Zamfara deputy governor, Alhaji Mahdi Aliyu by the state House of Assembly from office.

The party stated this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Debo Ologunagba in Abuja.

Ologunagba said that the impeachment by the House was illegal and as such a nullity.

“The PDP is reviewing the actions in Zamfara in this violent assault on the Rule of Law and will take appropriate actions necessary.

“In any case, the PDP and the people of Zamfara will not allow the impunity being foisted on the state to stand, and appropriate legal action is being taken in that regard.

“Fortunately, our party has implicit confidence in the judiciary, which has in the past demonstrated its capacity and ability to defend the Constitution and the Rule of Law,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the House had on Feb. 22, impeached Aliyu from office.
