The crisis in Jigawa State House of Assembly was put to rest on Wednesday as the state lawmakers passed a vote of confidence on the Speaker of the House, Haruna Aliyu.

Heavy security presence had been noticed on Tuesday at the gates of the Assembly complex in Dutse, allegedly deployed by the authorities to scuttle an attempt by some lawmakers to remove the speaker.
