Serious drama has been recorded at the Nasarawa State House of Assembly.
The drama was recorded on Tuesday with the emergence of two Speakers.
The Speakers were the immediate past Speaker, Mr. Ibrahim Balarabe-Abdullahi, who is seeking a return as Speaker for the third term and a member representing Kokona East constituency in the Assembly, Mr. Daniel Ogazi, The PUNCH reports.
It was gathered that while Balarabe-Abdullahi was elected at a sitting which took place at the Ministry for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in the state, Ogazi emerged as Speaker from the proceedings at the State Assembly complex.
The situation has caused confusion in the Assembly with Balarabe-Abdullahi and Ogazi claiming to be the authentic Speaker.
It was reported that before the elections which produced the two Speakers, the Acting Clerk of the House, Ibrahim Musa, released a statement indicating that the inauguration of the 24 members-elect and the election of a new Speaker of the Assembly had been postponed indefinitely.
Following the leadership crisis, security operatives barricaded the entrance of the Assembly and prevented everyone including 13 out of the 24 members-elect from gaining access to the Assembly premises.
The 13 members-elect are believed to be supporters of Ogazi, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) but collaborating with members-elect from the opposition political parties, while 11 members were loyal to Balarabe-Abdullahi, who is also a member of the APC.
