Mr. Nyako says the probe would be unfair.
Former Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa has described the plan by the Acting Governor of the State to probe his administration as “ridiculous”.
The acting governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, in a state-wide broadcast on Tuesday, announced that Mr. Nyako’s administration which he accused of leaving N82 billion liability, would be probed.
In a statement issued in Yola on Wednesday, Ahmad Sajoh, Mr. Nyako’s Director of Press and Publicity, said the planned probe was an attempt to discredit the former governor and pitch him against the people of Adamawa.
“To say Nyako left a liability of N82 billion is to say the least, ridiculous.
“How much did the state get as income over the period? It is not even half of the amount quoted”, Mr. Sajoh said.
He said that the probe would not be fair, adding that Mr. Nyako was already in court challenging his impeachment and was full of hope that the judiciary would vindicate him.
