Nyako’s Impeachment: We’ll Sanction Any Lawmaker That Develops Cold-Feet – Adamawa PDP Elders


As the investigative panel constituted to probe allegations levelled against the Adamawa State Governor, Admiral Murtala Nyako and his deputy, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders in the state have threatened to sanction any PDP member of the state House of Assembly, who backs down from current efforts to impeach both Governor Nyako and his deputy Bala Ngillari.

The stakeholders handed the warning following media reports that the governor and the 20 PDP lawmakers met in Abuja during the week and amicably resolved their differences.

The spokesman of the PDP Elders and Stakeholder’s Forum and a former governorship aspirant on the platform of PDP, Dr. Umar Ardo, speaking to reporters yesterday in Yola, the state capital, said that the impeachment saga is a PDP affair and any lawmaker, within the party’s fold who retraces his step will be sanctioned.

The seven-man panel investigating allegations of gross misconduct against the state governor and his deputy by the state House of Assembly concluded its public sitting  amidst controversy on Saturday.

The panel commenced sitting on Friday, rounded off with only the complainant (Adamawa Assembly) making an appearance against the respondents (Governor and his Deputy) who failed to appear at the sitting.

The panel, after waiting in vain for representatives of the governor and deputy governor, went ahead to watch a video clip tendered as exhibit and also cross examined the only witness presented by the house,  Wafarninyi Theman.

‎At the Saturday sitting, the counsel to the assembly, Hussaini Maidawa and Leonard Nzadon, who led Mr. Theman in evidence, concluded their respective presentations by urging the panel to take their applications against the governor and deputy governor as a proven case of the allegations raised against them.

In his response, the chairman of the panel, Buba Kaigama, said the panel would take its time to go over the presentations and other evidence provided by the assembly objectively and come out with its position at later date.
