POST IMPEACHMENT: Read Ex-Governor Murtala Nyako’s Response To The EFCC…

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has declared the impeached governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako wanted.
This decision followed a three hours questioning session held with the former deputy governor of the state, Bala Ngilari, who served with Nyako.

The leadership of the commission decided to declare Nyako wanted after he failed to honour the commission’s invitations after his removal from office.
It was further gathered that Nyako has evaded arrest as operatives detailed to arrest him after his removal from office by the House of Assembly has not sighted him since then.

Reacting to the warrant, Nyako told PUNCH, he was not surprised about the decision to declare him wanted because he would not be the first person to be so ‘hounded’ by men in power.
He expressed confidence that posterity will judge his administration kindly.

Nyako, who spoke through his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Ahmad Sajoh, said “They (the then government of the day) set up General Olusegun Obasanjo, accused him of a coup, jailed him unjustifiably and he later came out of prison to become President; they orchestrated the impeachment of Ayo Fayose, today they have returned him as governor elect.

“We have no fears. They harassed former Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido; today he is the Emir of Kano. So, if what they are doing has Allah’s support, he would not elevate the people being humiliated. There is judgment of history, there is judgment of God. Today they are at the helm of affairs; it does not mean they will be at the helm of affairs tomorrow. They should also await Allah’s judgment.”

The EFCC is on the trail of the ousted governor for financial impropriety running into billions of Naira.
He was impeached by the Adamawa Assembly on 15 July.
His deputy, Ngilari who reportedly resigned just before the impeachment, is however being questioned by the EFCC.
