Impeachment process of the Deputy Governor of Zamfara, Mahdi Aliyu Mohammed Gusau, has kick-started by the Zamfara State House Assembly.

It was gathered that there has been no love lost between the Deputy Governor and Governor Bello Matawalle since the defection of the latter to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Daily Star Nigeria recalls that in 2019, Supreme Court judgement saw a takeover of all political positions in the State by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Governor Matawalle’s defection alongside almost all members of the House of Assembly, Senate and House of Representatives (excepting for one) has placed him against the Deputy Governor who has unrepentantly chosen to remain ‘under the umbrella’.

Hon. Yahaya Kabiru Classic representing the Anka/Talata/Mafara Federal Constituency is the only National Assembly member who has stuck with the Deputy-Gov in the PDP.

On Friday, the Deputy Speaker of the Zamfara State House of Assembly, Hon Musa Bawa, submitted a document to the Speaker, Rt Hon Nasiru Mu’azu for the impeachment of the Deputy Governor.

Members of the Assembly accuse the Deputy Governor of breach of the Constitution, abuse of office and financial fraud.
