The former deputy governor of Adamawa State, Bala Ngilari, on Wednesday, explained why he addressed his resignation letter to the speaker of the state house of assembly instead of the ousted governor, Murtal Nyako, as requested by the law.

Ngilari’s resignation was read on the floor of the Adamawa Assembly on Tuesday and accepted by the lawmakers few minutes before Nyako, was sacked.
Ngilari said he was aware of the constitutional provision but was advised against doing so by the lawmakers.

“The truth is that I have not sent any letter of resignation to the governor up till now,” he told journalists.

“The representatives of the House only came to my house yesterday (Monday) asking me to tender my resignation and address the letter to the Speaker of the House which I did.

“When the lawmakers led by the Deputy speaker met and asked me to write the resignation, I wrote it to the governor. But they asked me to change it and address it to the speaker”.

Nyako had on Tuesday called for the reinstatement of his Deputy, which would have seen the latter being sworn in as the governor of the state.[eap_ad_3]
