Impeachment: 13 Adamawa Lawmakers Back Out



Less than six days after 19 members of the Adamawa State House of
Assembly issued an impeachment notice on Governor Murtala Nyako and
his deputy, Barr. James Ngilari, 13 lawmaker have expressed
willingness to withdraw their signatures.

The decision by the lawmakers to withdraw their signatures, according
to a source, was arrived after a meeting with former Vice President
Atiku Abubakar in Abuja.

“As I speak to you, I can confirm to you that 13 out of the 19
lawmakers who appended their signatures on the notice have written
withdrawing their signatures. We may have more of them doing that on
Monday if the trouble-shooting efforts of the top APC politicians in
the state scale through, everything will be brought under control,”
said the source.

Meanwhile, Ngilari returned to the country from Spain on Saturday and
met with President Goodluck Jonathan after the Sunday service held at
the Aso Villa Chapel.

The deputy Governor was one of the Christian faithful who witnessed
the investiture of Jonathan as the Grand Patron of Nigeria’s Boys’
Brigade. He later avoided the prying eyes of State House Correspondent
by going through the back door.

 A source at the Villa disclosed that the Presidency might have
expressed displeasure at the manner the Adamawa state House of
Assembly was handling the issue the impeachment issue.

 “The lawmakers in the state are handling the issue wrongly and giving
the impression as if the entire exercise was being scripted by Abuja.
There is every indication that they may abandon the entire process.
Atiku Abubakar and others have taken advantage of the entire process
and gone to block the impeachment process,” said the source.

 As at 6pm on Sunday, Governor Murtala Nyako was yet to return to
Yola, the state capital. A source at the Yola Government House told
our correspondent that the governor was slated to arrive the state
capital on Sunday.
