The Kaduna State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress has condemned the ugly behaviour exhibited by some lawmakers on the floor of the Kaduna State House of Assembly on Thursday, June 11, 2020 during its plenary session.

The party spoke through its Chairman, Air Commodore EK Jekada, rtd, mni who fielded questions from newsmen who besieged the party’s secretariat on the fracas that ensued when some of the lawmakers attempted to impeach the speaker Rt. Hon. Ibrahim Yusuf Zailani but failed and ended up impeaching the Deputy Speaker Hon. Muktar Isa Hazo and elected Hon. Isaac Auta Zankai representing Kauru Constituency as new Deputy Speaker.

Air Commodore EK Jekada, rtd, mni who affirmed the position of the party on the supremacy of rule of law and dialogue in resolving disputes said the actions of the Lawmakers were highly regrettable because it ran afoul of the standard practice of the All Progressives Congress both at the National and State level.

He described the application of thuggery in resolving political disputes as an aberration in modern day democracy, noting that it was also against the change mantra of the All Progressives Congress.

Air Commodore Jekada, rtd. mni advised the lawmakers to embrace dialogue and peace in their deliberations and appealed to the members of the public not to judge the party from the ugly trend exhibited by the lawmakers.
