The last may not have been seen in the controversy playing out at the Plateau state House of Assembly as 14 out of the 24-member Assembly have held fresh plenary where they reaffirmed Hon.Abok Ayuba as Speaker.
Lawmaker representing Barkin Ladi Constitiency, Peter Gyendeng who attended the plenary held outside the Assembly complex on Thursday confirmed the development to Jay FM in Jos.
Gyenden said as far as they were concerned, Ayuba Abok remains the Speaker of the Plateau state House of Assembly as he has done nothing to warrant his removal.
He said it was unacceptable for seven out of 24 members of the State Assembly to sit in the early hours of Thursday morning and claimed to have removed Abok as Speaker describing their action as illegal.
