Impeachment: Nasarawa Lawmakers Flee State Capital; Relocate to Another Local Govt for Sitting
The members of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly has fled Lafia, the state capital over fears that there lives are in danger following their insistence on going ahead with the impeachment proceedings on Governor Tank Al-Makura.
They fled the state capital and relocated to Karu Local Government Area to deliberate on a petition against the state Chief Judge, Justice Suleiman Dikko, over the composition of the seven-member panel raised to investigate allegations against the governor.
The panel which was recently constituted by the Chief Judge embroiled in a crisis of confidence bordering on alleged partisanship and partiality of its members, a development that necessitated decision of the lawmakers to review the membership of the panel.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP-dominated Assembly had asked the chief judge to set up the panel as part of the impeachment process of Mr. Al-Makura.
The governor, a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has denied any wrongdoing and his party has condemned the impeachment process and blamed the PDP and the presidency for it.
The decision of the assembly members to abandon the Assembly Complex in the state capital, Lafia, to sit in Karu, near Abuja may not be unconnected with the widespread protests against the impeachment process across the state.
