Deputy Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly, Mohammed Gwampo, was on Monday impeached by members of the House for alleged incompetence.

He disclosed that the petition of alleged incompetence was signed by 17 of the 24 members of the House.
He noted that they collectively passed a vote of no confidence on Gwampo who represents Yorro state constituency for failure to fulfill some constitutional duties reserved for his office.
According to him, “this honourable House notes with dismay that since the inception of the 8th Assembly when Hon Mohammed Gwampo was elected as deputy speaker till the present 9th Assembly, he has never for once presided over the sittings of this honourable House even when the speaker is unavoidably absent.
