Nyako Succumbs To Lawmakers Pressure,Appoints 36 LG Administrators

Two Of Nyako's four wives

Adamawa State Governor Murtala Nyako  yesterday swore in 36 Development Area Administrators.

He also inaugurated four Permanent Secretaries and a Special Adviser.

The former state Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. P. Elisha, whose nomination was earlier rejected by the lawmakers as a commissioner, was sworn in as Senior Special Assistant on Government Affairs.

The governor urged the appointees, especially the development area administrators, to remain focused on providing dividends of democracy to the people at the grassroots.

Nyako called for mass mobilisation to sustain the peaceful coexistence among the diverse people in the state.

The action of the governor is believed to be part of the deals agreed with the lawmakers to stop the impeachment process initiated against him.

The governor’s refusal to endorse the list of the development area administrators was part of the issues that led to the impeachment move.

Nyako, who last week relocated to Abuja, is believed to have met with some of the lawmakers, including Speaker Umaru Fintiri.

It is not clear whether the governor will appear before the panel set up by the House of Assembly to probe the allegations of misconduct against him and his deputy Bala Ngilari. He is due to appear today.

Also yesterday, some of the lawmakers, who are part of the impeachment move against the governor, are facing the wrath of their constituency members.

  1. It will be a mockery of democracy if Nyako suddenly becomes innocent of all accusations just because he acceded to the lawmakers' bidding.

  2. Real mockery of democracy in deed.

  3. Do we have democracy befor? We are practicing pseudo democracy .
