Efforts to resolve the impeachment attempt on the Adamawa State Governor, Admiral Murtala Nyako continued yesterday with the Governor’s visit to the former vice president Atiku Abubakar to draft him into the peace effort. Governor Nyajo, who was at Atiku’s Asokoro residence, was accompanied by the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC Malam Nuhu Ribadu.
The Chairperson of the All Progressives Congress, APC Adamawa State Chapter, Hon. Binta Koji was also present in the house. Shortly upon the Governor’s arrival, they went into a closed-door meeting.
Sources informed some reporters that Atiku committed himself to meeting the members of the state legislature on Friday evening, to try and persuade them to drop the impeachment. “Where this fails, we hope that the former vice president will ask his loyalists to withdraw their signatures.
Once he does that, the impeachment process will collapse because the requisite number for it to continue will have been lost,” a source close to the meeting said.
