The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa state has reacted to the proposed impeachment plot on Governor Murtala Nyako and his deputy by the state House of Assembly, saying that people in the state will resist it.
A statement issued by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Reveverend Phineas Padio, described the move as unfortunate and selfish.
The party said that the state Assembly is acting the script of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), describing it as a blind ambition by members of the House.
“The good people of Adamawa will resist it,’’ he warned.
Meanwhile, the Clerk of the House of Assembly, Mr. Francis Gabsenso, has said that he was yet to serve Governor Nyako and his deputy, Bala Ngilari, the notices of impeachment. This is contrary to the directive by the Speaker, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, on Wednesday that the Clerk should serve the duo with the notices of impeachment.
The Clerk, who spoke with newsmen on the development today in Yola, said that the governor and his deputy were out of town, adding: ‘I went to their respective offices but met their absence.” [myad]
