Benue Assembly suspends PDP member over alleged misconduct by AndrewO: 2:1 am On 7 Jul 2016
Attah Ede, Makurdi
the Benue State House of Assembly on
Thursday suspended the leader of a
splinter group in the House, Kesker Kyenge,
of the Peoples Democratic Party,
representing Logo State Constituency, over
issues bordering on misconduct.
The House’s decision was sequel to a
motion by its Majority Leader, Benjamin
Adanyi. It was seconded by Hon. Adams
Okloho, of Adoka /Ugboju State
Constituency. It accused the lawmaker of
bringing the name of the House to odium
through a press interview he granted The
Channels Television, where he was quoted
to have accused some House leaders of
corruption, among other allegations.
The House also accused Kyenge of
attempting to disrupt House proceedings
on Tuesday this week, when he was
alleged to have defiled the order of the
Speaker, by speaking when he was asked
to seat down (by the Speaker).
Kyenge, a leading opposition voice in the
House, had sought to move a motion under
an urgent matter of public interest but was
ruled out of order, in what the Speaker
said was a breach of the House
After a vote count, the House subsequently
suspended the former ALGON chairman in
Benue State for a period of five months.
His suspension is coming on the heels of
yet another accusation against him by the
Speaker of the Assembly and the Majority
Leader, who at a press conference
fingered him as leading a crusade to
tarnish the image of the House.
Reacting, kyenge described the said
suspension as a legislative rascality,
insisting that he was not given the
opportunity to defend himself.
“The suspension did not follow due
process, and so to me, it remains a
speculation because nobody has served me
in that regard. The normal thing to do is
that you ask the person so involved to
appear before the House committee
saddled with that responsibility. This will
allow the accused to say his own side of
the story. That is the normal process. And
so, to me, it is a legislative rascality,”
Kyenge stated.
