Impeachment Notice: I’ve Nothing To Fear, Says Nyako’s Deputy

Bala James NgilariThe embattled Adamawa State Deputy Governor, Mr. James Ngilari, on Sunday said he had no reason to be afraid because of the plan by the state House of Assembly to impeach him and his boss, Governor Murtala Nyako.

19 out of the 25 member Assembly had signed the impeachment notice for gross misconduct, which the Speaker, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, had on Wednesday directed the Clerk of the House to serve the governor and his deputy.

Ngilari, who was one of the dignitaries that attended church service at the Aso Villa chapel on Sunday, told State House correspondents that he believed in the saying that power belonged to God.

He recalled that he had won re-election into the House of Representatives before he was picked to serve as running mate to Nyako.

The deputy governor said he was out of the country on medical grounds when the lawmakers took the decision and that he was not afraid to return home to defend himself.

“I have nothing to fear. I was out of the country for medical check-up when I heard about the development. I will return to the state and respond appropriately to the allegation”, he said.
