Court Of Appeal Reverses Impeachment Of Murtala Nyako

0 21

A Federal Court of Appeal in Yola, on Thursday, reversed the impeachment of Murtala Nyako as Governor of Adamawa State.

Recall that Adamawa House of Assembly had on July 16, 2014, impeached and removed Nyako for gross misconduct.

In the lead judgment read by Justice Tunde Ayotoye, the judges agreed that due process was not followed in the impeachment process of Nyako, adding that the governor’s right was violated.

They, therefore, declared all the processes that led to the impeachment null and void, ordering that Nyako be accorded all right of the office of the governor of Adamawa State through the period of office, and be paid all his entitlement as governor of the state while it lasted.
