Nyako Impeachment: Investigative Panel submits report to Adamawa lawmakers

Governor Murtala Nyako

Speaker Umaru Fintiri received the report on behalf of the Assembly 

The seven-man investigative panel appointed by the former acting Chief Judge of Adamawa State, Ambrose Mammadi, to investigate allegations of gross misconduct against Governor Murtala Nyako and his deputy, Bala Ngilari, have submitted its report to the state Assembly.
The panel concluded its sitting on Saturday after Messrs. Nyako and Ngilari failed to appear before it.The panel’s report was received by the Speaker of the Assembly, Umaru Fintiri, and his deputy, Laori Kwamori, at the speaker’s office.

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.

      Divine intervention can come even if he is removed. It’s a matter of time. Ask OBJ, ATIKU, GOJE, SYLVA etc who thought life began and ended with PDP. Just find your way to stay long and you will tell stories.

    Let see what happens next.

    Nyako stays and any power that wants to tarnish the image of the outright man will soon regret it because it’s a forced hands from abuja to remove their own and such will never last. All the power from tukur to get his own son to the seat will never last.
