Court reinstates impeached Plateau Speaker.

Justice Nafisat Lawal Musa of the Plateau State High Court has,
reinstated Abok Ayuba as the Speaker of the state House of
Assembly, more than eighteen months after he was removed.

Ayuba, who represents the Jos East constituency  was impeached in
two thousand and one by some members of the state assembly in
controversial circumstances and replaced by another lawmaker,
Yakubu Sanda, who represents the Pengana state constituency.

Dissatisfied with the process that led to the impeachment of Abok,
two members of the House, Gwottson Fom, representing Jos South
State constituency and Tyem Pirfa Jinfa, representing Langtang North
North Constituency approached the court for redress.

In delivering her Judgement, Justice Musa, reinstated Abok Ayuba as
the speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly while granting an
injunction restraining the current speaker, Yakubu Sanda, from
parading himself as the Speaker of the Assembly.
