Cold War Continues in Adamawa Assembly as Speaker Sacks Chief Whip and Reshuffles Committees

There  is a brewing cold war in the Adamawa House of Assembly as the Speaker on Thursday removed the Chief Whip, and the Deputy Chief Whip from their positions. 

Adamawa State Assembly
The Speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly, Kabiru Mijinyawa, on Thursday, removed the Chief Whip, Hassan Barguma, and the Deputy Chief Whip, Abubakar Isa, from their positions as the cold war in the house continues.
According to Premium Times, the speaker also removed Barguma as chairman of the House Committee on Information, and reassigned him to be in charge of committee on Internally Displaced Persons.
He also appointed the House Deputy Speaker as the new chairman of the Committee on Information, while the speaker as vice chairman.
Other standing committees whose chairmen were removed are Solid Minerals, Youth and Sports, Commerce, Trade, Industry, and Cooperatives.
The speaker, Mijinyawa’s action, which took many lawmakers by surprise, is being perceived by many as a move to stamp his authority following speculations of impeachment threat against him.
It was gathered that the speaker had months ago, spoken about the threat to impeach him for allegedly not carrying everyone along, telling journalists it was impossible to carry everyone along.
“I can’t carry everyone along; it’s normal in life that nobody can satisfy all. I carry some and drop others, particularly those that messed up. I have no regret for that,” he had said.
When contacted on the development, Barguma said though it came to him as a surprise, he accepted his removal in good faith as part of politics of the house.

“I am not in the House to become Chief Whip, I am in the house to represent my people of Hong constituency. A legislature is not judged by leadership position he occupies in the house but by laws he made and the representation he gave his people,” Barguma said
