We the undersigned wonder why Hon. Naanlong Daniel Gapyil struggles to explain due process for removal of presiding officers in State Houses of Assembly as enshrined in Section 92(2c) of the 1999 CFRN as altered. We want the general public to be aware that Hon. Naanlong Daniel Gapyil was privileged to undergo series of intensive Legislative trainings on House Rules and procedures of Legislative Business who was the custodian of House Rules and Business because of his Former position as Rules, Business, Inter Governmental and Inter Parliamentary Committee.


Beloved Press Team and public, from this attached video, you can conduct simple investigation on the number of people that conducted the purported and botched impeachment of Rt. Hon. Abok Nuhu Ayuba on 28th October, 2021. This evidence-based video is enough to clarify the issue of numbers and procedures for removal of presiding officers. We still condemn this coup on the Plateau and Bad Legislative practice.


It could be recalled that Hon. Naanlong Daniel Gapyil moved a motion of vote of confidence on Rt. Hon. Abok Nuhu Ayuba in December, 2019 and July, 2021. We deemed it fit to let the general public know that if there were dictatorial tendencies, gross incompetence, financial mismanagement and other false allegations as raised by Mr. Naanlong Gapyil then he wouldn’t have moved these votes of confidence. We wish to also inform the public that it was Hon. Naanlong Gapyil that moved a motion for the House to go for one month recess from August to September, 2021 after passing a vote of confidence on Mr. Speaker in the plenary before the recess.


Let’s put the record straight that Plateau State House of Assembly Fund Management Law provided that the fund Management Committee sits quarterly, we still wonder why Hon. Naanlong and cohorts have not raised allegations on financial misappropriation for the past quarters that the Committee has met. We want to add that the Committee held it last meeting in August, 2021 and Hon. Naanlong Daniel Gapyil was a in attendance as Member of the Committee. Note: The Fund Management Committee replaced the Finance and General Purpose Committee (F&GPC)


We shall hold Hon. Naanlong Gapyil responsible to explain the issue of fake mace in PLHA in connection to their failed impeachment that took place 0600hrs on 28th October, 2021 with a borrowed mace from LGA. We are determined to protect PLHA.


We want to give the general public notice that there is a calculated attempt to vandalize PLHA by some paid hoodlums with the intention to use it as an excuse to provide another venue for plenary that cannot be accessibly by twelve of us. The illegal Speaker under the influence of Governme
