Lafia - The Nasarawa House of Assembly on Tuesday recalled six suspended members of the House from their six-month-old suspension.
The Speaker of the House, Ibrahim Balarabe-Abdullahi, announced the lifting of the suspension after the submission of the report of the assembly’s ad hoc committee that investigated the suspended members.
The report was submitted by Mohammed Alkali (PDP-Lafia North) on the floor of the house.
The House had on April 4 suspended Kassim Mohammed-Kassim (APC-Akwanga South), Murtala Sodangi (APC-Nasarawa Central), Mohammed Okpoku(APC-Udege/ Loko) and Musa Ali(APC-Keffi East).

Others were Makpa Malla (APC-Wamba) and Abubakar Kana (APC-Kokona West).
The lawmakers were suspended over allegations of bribery and corruption they levelled against the other members of the House.
The Speaker said: “If we recall, on April 4, 2016, a misunderstanding ensued between the members of the house which led to the suspension of six of our members over allegation of bribery and corruption against the house.
“On Aug.16, an ad hoc investigation committee called for a round table discussion with the six suspended members in which the six suspended members unanimously apologised to the committee.
“The ad hoc committee resolved and recommended as follows that to err is human and to forgive is divine, having realised their misgivings and apologised.
“The House should accept their apologies in the spirit of legislative brotherhood and exercise its plenary powers in their favour,’’ he said.
Balarabe-Abdullahi said the committee report recommended that all the allowances of the suspended lawmakers be paid to them.
The Majority Leader and member representing Awe North on the platform of APC, Tanko Tunga, moved the motion for the lifting of the suspension.
