Nyako’s impeachment: This is war against Nigeria – APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has decried the impeachment of Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa by the State House of Assembly, describing the act as a “war against Nigeria” with evident of purported plans by President Goodluck Jonathan to weaken the opposition’s strongholds ahead of the 2015 general elections.

APC stated this at the World Press Conference held at the Party’s National Secretariat in Abuja. The party’s National Chairman, John Oyegun who addressed the press faulted the governor’s impeachment, saying due process and proper judicial procedures were not followed “The entire impeachment of Governor Nyako is so fraught with irregularities, bias, judicial contradictions and in violation of every procedural and constitutional provisions that it is the worst manifestation of impunity,” he said.

The party accused the President of bribing members of the Adamawa State House of Assembly to hatch the plan of impeaching the governor, claiming that he was informed of the same plot to do same in Edo, Nasarawa and Rivers State.

“The house members were allegedly given US$300,000 as part payment to impeach Nyako; some N500 million has allegedly been moved to Nasarawa to induce the state’s lawmakers to impeach Governor Al-Makura, and in Edo, each lawmaker has allegedly been offered 2014N75 million to impeach Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

APC queried the allegations of extra-budgetary expenditure leveled against Nyako, saying the President is also culpable of the same allegation.
“Who is more guilty of gross misconduct than a President who is frittering away our commonwealth to induce perfidious legislators to impeach their state governors? Who is more guilty of gross misconduct than a President who deploys troops to harass, intimidate and arrest the opposition during an election? Who deserves to be impeached for gross misconduct more than a President who uses national institutions against the opposition, and shuts airports arbitrarily?” the party chairman queried.
