Inauguration of the eighth Katsina State House of Assembly was yesterday morning disrupted by thugs and supporters of the ruling All Progressives Con­gress, APC.

The thugs and APC sup­porters, who thronged the premises and chamber of the Assembly, kept legisla­tive proceedings from hold­ing.

With the disruption, the inauguration as well as elec­tion of the new leadership of the House was shifted till 4pm yesterday.

It was learnt that the development may not be unconnected with rancour amongst members of the APC, over who should be­come the new Speaker of the House.

A meeting held between the state government and the lawmakers up till the wee hours of yesterday, was deadlocked over who should become Speaker.

The state government, it was learnt, was backing Hon. Aliyu Sabiu Munduru, representing Mani state constituency, while some lawmakers were in support of another candidate, Hon. Haruna Aliyu Yamel, repre­sentin Dutsi state constitu­ency for the position.
