Adamawa Governor’s Impeachment’s Action Is Sponsored – APC

he National Vice Chairman of the All progressives Congress (APC), in the northeast, Mr Babachir Lawal, has criticised the planned impeachment of the Governor of Adamawa State, Admiral Murtala Nyako, insisting that the process is sponsored.

 Addressing a news conference in Abuja, after an emergency caucus meeting of the party, Mr Lawal said the attempt by members of the Adamawa State House of Assembly to impeach Governor Nyako was an illegal act being backed by the state Acting Chief Judge.
The party expressed concerns that the impeachment proceedings against governor Nyako was being sponsored from outside the state with the sole aim of decimating states controlled by the All Progressives Congress.
“We have discussed extensively what is happening in Adamawa State and condemned vehemently the breach of procedure in the impeachment process.
“We condemned in totality, this illegality that is being perpetrated in Adamawa State. The consequence of which we know will lead to further arrest in our community. We believe it is sponsored from outside to cause disunity in our state. while the hand is that of Esau the voice is that of Jacob.
“We call on the President to call his attack dogs off and let our state live in peace,” he said.
Earlier, The Adamawa State House of Assembly had commenced impeachment proceedings against the state governor, Murtala Nyako, and his deputy, Bala Ngilari.
It was stated that months of acrimonious relationship existed between the executive and the legislature in the northeast state since the change in political party by the Governor from PDP to APC.
