The Action Congress of Nigeria has rejected the sacking of the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Mr. Bello Abdullahi, and other officers of the assembly.
The party described the sacking as “a huge joke and legislative rascality” that would not stand the test of time.
It also vowed to use all legal instruments at its disposal, including civil disobedience to ensure that injustice does not reign supreme in the state.
However, speaking with journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, a leader of the ACN in the state, Mr. Dino Melaye, said their removal has no democratic precedent.
Melaye warned that stakeholders in the state would not fold their arms and allow illegality to take place.
Stakeholders, he said, had expected the governor to focus on the flood ravaging the state and providing palliatives to the victims instead of getting involved in destabilising the assembly.
He said, “This purported impeachment by some selected lawmakers is kangaroo, fanthom, huge joke, illogical and demonstrates intellectual stagnancy. It can never happen in any democracy that 11 out of 25 can remove elected officers using Taiwan-made mace
“As I am talking to you now, the speaker is in control of 13 members of the House while the governor is in control of 11, this is legislative rascality.”
