Nyako and his deputy refused to appear before the committee on Friday, but the panel told our source that the refusal of Nyako would not in any way deprive it from writing and submitting its report next week.
The source said: “Nyako knows that there is no way, he can wriggle out of the very weiighty allegations of corruption against him. How can he defend the monies collected by his family members for jobs not carried out among other flagrant abuses?”.
On the Court Order stopping thee panel from continuing with the impeachment process, the source said there was no such order adding that what Nyako wants is to get the court to stop an arm of government from carrying out its assigned constitutional duties.
“Nyako knows that time is running out on him and is working hard to buy time. He can’t win this struggle no matter his level of mobilisation of emirs, Chiefs and hired prostesters, who are only intereted in collecting their money,” the source further said.
In his reaction, the Senior Special Adviser on Government and Political Affairs to Governor Nyako , Mr. Philip Phinas Elisha, said his principal refused to appear before the panel constituted by the Acting Chief Judge of the state, Justice Ambrose Mamadi, owing to the fact that due process of law was not followed in the constitution of the panel.
This was just as Nyako told some Adamawa women mobilised to drum support for him that he has forgiven all those particularly Abuja based politicians from Adamawa State that are the brain behind the impeachment saga.
He said he has joined well meaning citizens of the state to pray to God to also forgive those behind the impeachment moves against him by attempting to polarise the state along ethnic and religious lines.
Nyako, who played host to a group of women led by Hajiya Hauwa Abba, who is the Coordinator Women Empowerment Programme in the office of SPPU, Government House, Yola that paid him a solidarity visit, attributed the impeachment saga to those he described as unpatriotic politicians that are hiding ad hid themselves under the canopy of elders of the state to cause disaffection among the good people of the state.
Nyako said: “I will continue to keep faith with the social contract I have with the people of Adamawa State and nothing will deter me from identifying with the people of Adamawa.
“They are selfish politicians, who are out to infuse wrong impressions into the downtrodden folks of the state”.
