Nigerians reaction to the removal of Adamawa state governor
On July 15, 2014, Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State was impeached by the State House of Assembly on allegations of gross financial misconduct. We have asked ordinary Nigerians what they thought of the development.
Both Nyako and his deputy, Bala Ngilari, were served with the impeachment notice a month ago. Ngilari, who has resigned, is accused of extra-budgetary expenditure. On Tuesday, seventeen of the 25 members of the Assembly adopted the report of the investigation panel.
Following the news, the APC (All Progressives Congress), to which Nyako now belongs after leaving the PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) in November 2013, has, traditionally, exchanged blows and stingy comments with its main political opponent.
