Posted by Yiro Abari
The Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Honourable Emmanuel Go'ar was on January 22, 2009 impeached in a seventeen to seven vote cast by the twenty four members of the Plateau State House of Assembly. The action by the members of the House came as a big shock to the people of the state in view of the fact that the House showed no signs of misunderstanding or crisis previously. In his place Istifanus Caleb Mwansat representing the southern part of the same Local Government whose northern half Go'ar represents was elected as the new Speaker of the House. The spokesman of the House, Emmanuel Danboyi said Go'ar was impeached on grounds of incompetence and that the members were not swayed by any external factor.
