Plateau Assembly members for peace sitting


Strong indications have emerged the crisis rocking Plateau Assembly appears to be over as all 24 lawmakers are expected to be present during Thursday plenary.

Sources close to the embattled impeached Speaker Abok Ayuba said the Forum of former Plateau Speakers may have brokered a deal among the lawmakers who have been having a running battle with the house leadership since October.

A loyalist of Abok, Hon. Sohchang Zingtim, confirmed to The Nation that the peace deal was real.

He said: “There is something like that. We are travelling back to Jos but I cannot tell you the time when sitting will commence, but, there is something like that.”

The Majority Leader, who is loyal to Speaker Sanda, Hon. Naanlong Daniel, also confirmed to The Nation the 24 lawmakers will be at the plenary.

However, the 9 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members are attending a national retreat in Abuja.

“So, possibly, we should be able to sit next week, if it’s not possible today.

“As I speak, I’m on my way to the House to join other members,” Daniel stated.
