Bello’s remarks follows reports that the State House of Assembly has been in crises for the past three months due to leadership tussle.
The crisis assumed a new dimension when the National Assembly took over the functions of the Assembly and ordered the Inspector General pf Police, Solomon Arase to seal the assembly complex.
But Bello said the House is still sitting and there is absolute peace in the state.
He denied that the assembly complex has been sealed as legislative works are ongoing.
