The councillors of Mubi North Local Government of Adamawa have withdrawn their impeachment move against the council chairman, Sahabo Jauro.

Briefing journalists on the development Wednesday in Yola, the councillors through their spokesperson, Paul Samuel, the councillor representing Vimtim Ward, said the impeachment was withdrawn in the interest of the peace and development of the area, which was recently recaptured from the Boko Haram insurgents by the military.

Mr. Samuel, flanked by the other councillors, tendered a notice signed by all directing their lawyer to withdraw the case filed in the Court of Appeal against the chairman.

Mr. Samuel said he had sat with the chairman and resolved to settle out of court.

There had been continued conflict between the Executive and Legislature of Mubi North Council leading to the councillors announcing the proposed impeachment of the chairman.

The chairman challenged the impeachment in a Yola High Court where it was declared null and void.

When contacted, the chairman, Mr. Jauro, confirmed the latest development, saying, “We have resolved to work together.”
