“These lawmakers are suspended from the house indefinitely without salary and allowances over their misconduct,” he announced.

Majority Leader of the house, Tanko Tunga (APC-Awe North), had moved a motion for the suspension of the six lawmakers over misconduct and for corruption allegations they levelled against members of the house.

Tunga said that the suspended lawmakers had alleged that the executive arm of government bribed some members of the house to support the appointment of sole administrators for 11 local government areas by Governor Tanko Al-Makura.
