Lokoja - A minority faction of the Kogi State House of Assembly has suspended 10 members of the House for their alleged involvement in the leadership crisis rocking the state legislature since November 2015
The suspension order issued on the floor of the House at plenary on Tuesday, followed the adoption of a report of the ad hoc committee commissioned on March 10.
Presenting the report, John Abah (PDP-Ibaji), Chairman of the ad hoc committee, said the committee found that the House of Representatives was misguided by members who had interest in the crisis.

He said the 10 members had persistently fuelled the crisis and made it extremely difficult for the house to resolve the leadership impasse peacefully in order to carry out its lawful and constitutional responsibilities.
