BREAKING: Plateau State House of Assembly SUSPENDS The Elected Chairmen of Kanam, Qua’an-pan LG

The Plateau State House of Assembly Suspended the local Government Chairmen of Kanam and Quaanpan LGA for the Period of three months.

Daily Watch Press, gathered that the suspension of the two Chairmen, Alh. Abbas Wakdung and Hon. Chief Isaac Kyale Kwallu is connected with a perceived insubordination to the Governor of Plateau State, Barr. Simon Bako Lalong.

As the case of Qua’an-pan Local Government Council Chairman, Mr. Isaac is remotely connected to the Plateau Southern Senatorial By-Election, in which the Chairman is one of the leading aspirant and not the anointed candidate of the State Governor.

As for Hon. Wokdung, our source said, it is clearly connected to two major issues, the issue of Clerk of the Kanam Local Government Council and the issue of the 5% deduction with respect of the Plateau State University, Bokkos, for which the Chairman has not been cooperating.

All attempt by Daily Watch Press to speak with the two Chairmen has not yielded any result so far.

  1. The issue goes beyond public castigation. The issue is separation of powers as enshrined in the Constitution. Who is right here? Me thinks Festus Keyamo is very right. As the legislature their job is almost complete after appropriation. Program implementation is an executive function. The Legislators can oversight the process but they cannot stop it. Budget has been approved. The president should implement. If the Legislators feel aggrieved, they should go to court. I do not know which part of the Constitution grants them the right to stop the president from implementing an approved and appropriated program. I agree with Keyamo that the Legislators want to usurp the implementation owners of the president. If they wanted favors they should have treated the Honourable Minister civily. My take.
