Speaker Umaru Fintiri received the report on behalf of the Assembly
PREMIUM TIMES gathered that the lawmakers, who are mostly out of Yola, the state capital, may return to consider the report in plenary this week.
Briefing reporters, shortly after receiving the report, Mr. Fintiri said the House would look critically at the outcome of the panel’s findings.
He also said the House would be fair to all concerned in reaching a decision on the governor and his deputy.
The Assembly had in its notice of impeachment sent to the governor accused him of fraudulently diverting N10 billon of workers’ salaries for September and October 2011; N120 million of Adamawa state workers’ emolument for May, 2014; N1.7 billion for Special Assistants; and N8 billion for fictitious Special Assistants scheme.
Mr. Ngilari stands accused of extra-budgetary expenditure of over N390 million as overhead cost from January 2013 to December 2013 among other allegations.
The lawmakers say the expenditure contravenes section121 (4) (a) and (b) of the constitution.
This the second time Mr. Nyako would be served notice of impeachment in his over seven-yeartenure as governor of the state.
