Mr. Al-Makura, who arrived the sitting at about 9.12 a.m. waited for over 30 minutes for the panel members headed by Yusuf Usman‎ to arrive. The members were yet to arrive as at the time of this report.

The governor arrived with a large entourage of political appointees and a member of the state assembly representing Keffi-East, Othman Bala Adam (All Progressives Congress, APC).

    In Heavyweight Championship bouts, never has the Champ entered the ring before the challenger…
    Al-Makura must be riding high on confidence and ready to dispel all charges as “frivolous & malicious”…to have set his alarm clock for 5a.m. If as at 9.45am when this report reached Höly Wähala those clowns are still snoring in bed, the Chief Justice should question the Governor on the allegations and make unitary pronouncement which should be binding since the panelists have obviously abdicated their duty to the people.

    I’m glad he’s appearing before the panel. a chance to defend and prove himself innocent or when found guilty brought to book and face the wrath. No room for shenanigans.

    This is not a question of arriving early, its a question of improper conduct, If he has appeared early and is still guilty, it changes nothing. Let justice take its course. The 16 count charges needs to be addressed.
