The Nasarawa State House of Assembly, yesterday, announced the recall of the six members suspended for six months to enable them perform their legislative duties.

Speaker of the House, Alhaji Ibrahim Balarabe-Abdullahi, announced this during plenary in Lafia.

The assembly members, who were suspended on allegation of bribery and corruption since April, are Kassim Mohammed-Kassim (APC-Akwanga South), Murtala Sodangi (APC-Nasarawa Central), Mohammed Okpoku (APC-Udege/ Loko), Musa Ali (APC-Keffi East), Makpa Malla (APC-Wamba) and Abubakar Kana (APC-Kokona West).

The Speaker, Balarabe-Abdullahi, said: “If we will recall, on October 11, the House passed a resolution that the six suspended members should resume on Monday based on their apology when they appeared before the ad hoc investigation committee.

“Today, I want to inform you that the six suspended members have resumed and have also tendered a written apology letter duly signed by all of them over their actions, which led to their six-month suspension.”

The Speaker challenged members of the assembly to forgive and forget the past in order to move the assembly and the state forward for the overall development of the country.

He also promised to carry every member along and urged them to work as a team to bring the much needed development to the state.
