The members of the Adamawa state House of Assembly, on Wednesday, almost exchanged blows over the sharing formula of agricultural loans forms provided by the north East Commodity Association(NECAS).
The Assembly had reconvened on Wednesday to address some teething issues including the distribution of the loan forms to their constituents.
However, tensions rose during the Executive session held in the speaker’s office, when members openly disagreed with each other over the modalities for the equitable sharing of the facilities amongst them.
The speaker, Rt Hon. Aminu Iya Abbass was hard put trying to control the situation. Midway into the hot argument between Hon Abdullahi Umar Yapak,, representing Fulfore dconstituency and Hon Alhassan Hammanjoda of Ganye constituency, newsmen were asked to vacate the vicinity of the meeting due to the hot exchange.
Only last week, the Adamawa House of Assembly was forced to hurriedly adjourn and all standing committees of the House dissolved following attempts to make the Speaker answer some questions pertaining to welfare of members
