Speaker defends Nyako’s impeachment
Acting Speaker of the Adamawa State House of Assembly Kwamoti Laori justified yesterday the impeachment of Admiral Murtala Nyako as governor.
He said the House followed the constitution.
Laori spoke when the state Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Joel Hammanjoda Madaki, led the executive members on a visit to him.
Laori, who represents Numan Constituency, said: ‘’ I have been hearing people say that the whole process was executed in haste and the Nigerian constitution was flouted, but I want to tell anybody who wants to listen that the Adamawa State Assembly will do anything possible and go to any extend to defend the impeachment of former Governor Nyako. It was done legally and according to the tenets of the law.
“What people are saying is not defensible in law, but we will do everything to prove that the House lawfully impeached the governor according to the relevant sections of the 1999 Constitution as amended’’
He promised that the House would cooperate with the PDP leadership to shape the affairs of the state.
Madaki said the party had come to congratulate the House for wiping the tears on the faces of the people of Adamawa especially PDP members, with Nyako’s removal.
“ We are here to thank you and also congratulate you for a job well done because the mandate was stolen from us but today, we can enter the Government House freely unlike before when stern-looking security men prevented us from having access.’’
