Nyako Impeachment: Panel Submits Report To Assembly


The drama in the impeachment saga of Adamawa Governor, Murtala Nyako and his deputy, Bala James Ngilari, continued on Monday as the seven-man panel submitted its report to the State House of Assembly after two days of sitting.

Submitting the report to the speaker, the chairman of the panel, Honourable Bala Kaigama, observed that the panel encountered initial problem of having a venue for sitting but eventually overcame the challenge and produced four volumes of the report on allegations levelled against the governor and the deputy.

Both the governor and the deputy did not appear before the panel, but it continued with the investigation.


Receiving the report, the Speaker of the House, Honourable Umaru Fintiri, assured the panel that the report would be given appropriate attention, considering the importance of the panel in shaping democracy in Nigeria and the state in particular.

One of the accused, the deputy governor, had expressed concern on the procedure that led to the establishment of the panel, citing it as his reason for not appearing before the panel to defend himself on allegations of improper conduct against him.

As the impeachment saga drama unfolds, it is still uncertain whether the governor and his deputy will escape the wrath of the House as efforts are already ongoing to save the situation before it gets out of hand. (Channels)
