Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, says he has met with the factional speakers of the state’s assembly in a bid to resolve the leadership crisis rocking among the lawmakers.
There was drama at the assembly complex on Tuesday with the emergence of two members – Ibrahim Balarabe and Daniel Ogazi – both from the western zone of the state as speakers.
As a result, the Governor has come under criticism with some accusing him of siding with the Balarabe faction.
However, Governor Sule explained he has called for a truce between both camps. He said the two contestants for the Speakership position are friends.
The governor stated that after the other camp was denied, he persuaded the former Speaker of the House – Ogazi – to withdraw from the speakership race.
“We tried everything possible to see how we could resolve the matter between them. I have met with them many times prior to the day of the inauguration,” he said.
“The two best friends in the house have been there for a very long time. One being a former Speaker and the other being a gentleman who is also challenging the former Speaker started contesting.”
