Court stops impeachment move against Gov Matawalle’s deputy, Gusau over refusal to join APC

The Federal High Court in Abuja has halted the impeachment move against Zamfara State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Mahadi Aliyu Mohammed Gusau.

Justice Obiora Egwatu has barred the Zamfara State House of Assembly members from making further moves in the impeachment process.

Justice Egwatu issued the order on Monday in his ruling in an ex-parte application filed by the PDP.

Gusau has been targeted, over his refusal to decamp from the People Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressive Congress, APC, along with Governor Bello Matawalle.

After listening to the arguments canvassed by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief James Onoja Ogwu, the judge held that the apprehension of the applicant in respect of the impeachment move was serious and justified to restrain the defendants from carrying out the alleged action.

The judge also restrained the Chief Judge of Zamfara State from constituting any panel for the purpose of investigating Gusau pending the determination of a motion on notice filed by the PDP.

Other defendants in the matter are Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), APC, the Senate President, the Speaker of House of Representatives, Speaker of Zamfara House of Assembly and Governor Bello Matawalle.
