El-Buba, Lalong Trade Words Over Impeached Plateau Speaker
Jos based Christian Cleric and the vice President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Prophet Isa El-Buba has Condemned the Impeachment of Plateau Speaker, Abok Ayuba by few members of the state House of Assembly.
El-Buba who stated this on Saturday in Jos at the annual Thanksgiving Service of PFN held at Church of Eternal Life with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in attendance, called on Lalong to intervene quickly to avoid the state being plunged into another round of crisis.
Prophet El- Buba gave this words of caution to Lalong when he took to the podium to lead the segment of National Prayers for the nation.
After commending the Vice President for his Visit to the state and for spear heading the social intervention Programme of the Federal government, the cleric then turned to Plateau Governor to caution on the current debacle rocking the state House of Assembly.
Prophest El Buba charged governor Lalong to intervene in the Thursday’s removal of the speaker of the state House of assembly by few Lawmakers in the interest of peace and to avoid plunging the state into another round of crisis.
The cleric was of the opinion that at a time the state is experiencing somme relative calm, everything should be done to ensure that peace is consolidated and encouraged on the Plateau
Governor Lalong while responding to a submission by Prophet Isa El-Buba Lalong said:
“the House of Assembly is an autonomous body that runs its affairs independently. You will recall that I was the first Governor in Nigeria to sign into law the Autonomy Bill when it was passed. I did that because of my passion for democratic growth and the strengthening of the Institution. Having served as a Speaker who was also impeached, I have no hand in the running of the House, not to talk of the change of its leadership. They run their affairs and do as they wish based on their rules and the law”.
Lalong also advised the citizens particularly the leaders of thought to always verify information at their disposal before taking a position on any matter such as the impeachment story that has been widely misrepresented.
He advised those who have concerns to reach out to the members and get the complete picture before reaching conclusions.
Lalong Called for prayers and support for those in authority.
