The members who sat back reportedly resumed sitting and allegedly impeached the speaker in absentia and without the mace.

A lawmaker said that there was tension around the assembly complex in the build-up to the sitting where the speaker was expected to resign on Monday.

The assemblyman also said that the leadership of Peoples Democratic Party had advised Isenah to resign, pleading anonymity.

But Isenah insisted  that his resignation was premature and could only happen after the election.

”I did not resign, neither was I impeached, I presided over the house and I did not preside as an impeached speaker, so as we speak the house is on recess and anything done by anyone is a nullity.

”The speculation that there was an understanding that I will resign is false, I challenge anyone canvassing that position to come up with a proof, .” Isenah said by telephone.(NAN)
