The decision of the Assembly to impeach Mamuda was sequel to a motion sponsored by a member representing Nassarawa Local Government Area, Ibrahim Gama.

The House which unanimously adopted the motion after it was put to a voice vote immediately him with Labaran Madari, a member representing Warawa constituency.
Spokesman of the House, Salisu Ibrahim explained that the removal of Mamuda was done within the Ambit of the law.
According to Ibrahim, the party constitution says the governor is the party leader, except where opposition party is in government.
