MEMBERS of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly yesterday passed a vote of confidence on speaker of the Assembly, Alhaji Ibrahim Balarabe-Abdullahi and other principal officers of the House.
This followed a motion moved by Mr. Mohammed Ibrahim-Alkali (PDP- Lafia North) during the house proceeding in Lafia.
Mr. Ibrahim-Alkali, who is the minority leader of the house, posited that the speaker had exhibited high sense of maturity in piloting the affairs of the house, hence the need for the motion.
“My colleagues, I want to move a motion to pass a vote of confidence on Alhaji Ibrahim Balarabe-Abdullahi, the speaker of this house and other principal officers for their leadership quality.
“The speaker has done a lot in not only uniting the members of this house but has also exhibited high sense of maturity in piloting the affairs of the house,” he said.
He called on the members to continue to support and give their maximum support to the speaker to enable him and other principal officers succeed for the good of the state.
Mr. Abubakar Imam (APC-Lafia Central) seconded the motion.
Responding after the house passed the motion, Speaker Balarabe-Abdullahi thanked his colleagues for the vote of confidence and assured of his commitment towards the unity of the Assembly.
The house had earlier relieved the six suspended members of their leadership positions over alleged misconduct.
