The presidency has described the decision of former governor of Adamawa State Murtala Nyako to run out of the country following his impeachment by members of the House of Assembly last Tuesday, as a clear indication that accusations levelled against him were correct.
Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to the President, Dr. Doyin Okupe told Vanguard that those who had alleged that President Goodluck Jonathan was responsible for the former governor’s predicament will now hide their heads in shame.
“There must be a reason for his running away and this means that those who accused him of mismanagement of funds are correct, the fact speaks for itself and it is now clear that those accusing the president of having a hand in his impeachment are lying.”
In his comment, National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Alhaji Lai Mohammed said he could not confirm the whereabouts of the sacked governor. He also declined comments on whether the former governor was on the run.
“I don’t know where he is. I don’t know whether he is on the run or not,” said Mohammed.
