The Nasarawa State House of Assembly on Thursday distanced itself from any plans to impeach Governor Tanko Al-Makura and advised the public to disregard rumors of the purported impeachment moves.
The Speaker of the House, Alhaji Musa Ahmed, gave the advice while reacting to the impeachment speculation in a chat with newsmen in Keffi.
He also denied reports in a section of the media that the Assembly has been holding nocturnal meetings with President Goodluck Jonathan or any other person over the impeachment plot.
“I want to make it clear that the Assembly had not in any quarter discuss with any person, even President Gooluck Jonathan, that the House will impeach Governor Al-Makura.
“The House must have a reason if it must impeach the governor. What is the reason? Can those who carry such false rumours come out and prove their allegation on such impeachment? People should stop that rumour mongering
“Such acts are capable of causing disharmony, disaffection, disunity as well as slow down the rate of the progress of the state and the country at large.
“The House did not hold any discussion with President Jonathan or with any other person in the country to impeach Governor Tanko Al-Makura”, the Speaker stressed.
