Few hours after his Deputy, Bala Ngilari tendered his resignation letter, Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State has been impeached by the Adamawa state House of Assembly, bringing the weeks of intense debate over the governor’s fate to an abrupt end.

Recall that Nyako has been in a political battle over his continued stay in office following allegation of gross misconduct levelled against him and his Deputy by the highly dominated PDP state Assembly.

Nyako’s impeachment and Ngilari’s resignation, has created an opportunity for the Speaker , Alhaji Umaru Fintiri to act in the capacity of an Acting Governor.
