Fintiri Threatens Impeachment Against New Adamawa Governor, Ngilari
Embattled former acting governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has issued a veiled threat commencing impeachment proceedings on the new Governor of Adamwa State, Mr Ngilari.
Ngilari was sworn in as governor last week, following the voiding of his impeachment along with his former boss, Murtala Nyako, about three months ago.
Fintiri, who returned to his seat as the Speaker of the House of Assembly on Tuesday said the assembly would exercise its constitutional rights to rid Adamawa of bad governance.
“I would like to make it abundantly clear that the Legislature remains the defender of democracy and should it be required to exercise its constitutional duties of ridding Adamawa State of bad governance once again, it will do so without hesitation,” he vowed.
He said his brief stint as the acting governor had resuscitated a state which had been on life-support in the past seven years.
”This is the reason why I request the people of Adamawa State to disregard the current baseless rumour that the interim government I led for 86 days would be investigated for expending the sum of N18 billion.
“I challenge those behind this ridiculous claim to provide a shred of evidence for just N1 million that was expended illegally, not to talk of the so-called N18 billion, which we never received from anywhere,” he added.
“Let me particularly commend honourable members for passing a vote of confidence in me as a worthy representative as well as for their resilience and steadfastness to rescuing Adamawa State without which nothing would have been achieved.”
Fintiri commended the personal sacrifices and the immense pressure they had to resist to ensure that their ‘’democratic intervention against bad governance and administration succeeded in line with the popular demand of the people of Adamawa State.’’
