The reasons behind the resignation of Hon. Aminu Shagali as Kaduna Speaker have started emerging.

The ex-Speaker who has been representing Sabon-Gari Constituency in the Assembly since 2011, officially submitted his resignation letter to Clerk of the House Tuesday morning.

Tanimu Musa, Chairman, House Committee on information, also confirmed he submitted his resignation letter on Tuesday.

However, it was gathered that members of the House had started collecting signatures to impeach him before he eventually bowed to pressure and resigned with the reason behind the pressure yet to be unraveled as the time of filing this report.

The 40-year-old Shagali became Speaker on the coming of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to power in 2015.

He was re-elected to preside over the 5th Kaduna State Assembly in 2019 on the strong recommendation of Governor Nasir Ahmed El-Rufa’i.
