Gov Nyako Impeachment Panel Kicked Out of Hotel Venue Selected for Sitting
The seven-man panel constituted by the Adamawa State Acting Chief Judge, Justice Ambrose Mammadi to investigate Governor Nyako and his deputy, Bala Ngilari for alleged gross misconduct had a tough day yesterday as they were kicked out of the hotel it selected for its sitting.
It was gathered that the management of the J & J Hotel Villa, where the panel held its first sitting sent the panel packing because of complaint that the heavy presence of security operatives had scared away customers from the hotel.
The clerk of the Adamawa House of Assembly, who was negotiating venue for the panel‘s sitting was helpless as other hotels he visited equally turned down his request for the use of their premises.
The panel, it was gathered, moved to the NLC club, where the state chairman of the NLC tactically declined, claiming to be performing the lesser Hajj (Umrah) in Saudi Arabia.
The panel’s next port of call was the Adamawa State NUJ press centre, where there were divergent opinions from the leadership on whether or not to give out the conference hall of the centre.
A former national officer of the NUJ, who was alleged to be in the fore front negotiating the usage of NUJ centre was alleged to have even made contact with the North East zonal leadership of the union on the need to compel Adamawa council leadership to release the centre to the panel.
But following disagreement within the state leadership of the body, an emergency state executive council meeting was convened where majority of the members kicked against the use of the NUJ press centre for the panel sitting.
Efforts by the Clerk of the Adamawa State House of Assembly to provide soldiers to secure the building could not convince the journalists who stood their ground.
It was gathered that the Clerk of the Assembly had earlier deposited N170,000 for the which was refunded after the state executive council of the NUJ had rejected the use of the centre and information available indicated that the panel was yet to secure a venue as at the time of filing this report.
