Olisa_MetuhThe sacking yesterday of Adamawa State Acting Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri and the swearing-in of the former deputy to impeached Governor Murtala Nyako, Barr. Bala Ngilari as governor, will not be challenged in court, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said.

A federal high court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday had declared the inauguration of Mr. Fintiri as acting governor, illegal, unconstitutional and as such, null and void. The court also ordered the immediate inauguration of Ngilari as the authentic governor of the state since his purported resignation did not stand in the face of law.

Reacting to the development, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, said: “The party has looked at the judgement on Adamawa and we resolved as follows:

“The PDP is a law-abiding party and we have therefore advised our members to obey accordingly. As is being done in every legal matter, there is a right of appeal.

“But in the meantime, the PDP has enjoined our party members to obey the decision of the court.

“Secondly, the paramount thing for us is peace in Adamawa. And we enjoin the Executive Governor of Adamawa State that was sworn in today to pursue peace and progress of Adamawa State.

“The state has had its own fair share of political turmoil, the state has had its own fair share of challenges. We believe that the citizens of the state deserve peace and unity.

“We urge our state chairman to ensure that PDP remains united as one body in Adamawa. And as a PDP member we can only say to the former Deputy Governor to continue to pursue the party’s programmes for the benefit of the people”, Metuh said.
