Al Makura Wins as Investigative Panel Dismisses Charges!

Reprieve came the way of the embattled Governor Umar Tanko Al Makura of Nassarawa State on Tuesday as the seven-man panel set up to investigate charges of financial impropriety and other impeachable offences against him absolved the Governor of wrongdoing and dismissed the charges.
The panel arrived at its submission after listening to the Governor on Monday and the representation put forward by the House of Assembly on Tuesday.
The leadership of the House of Assembly had on Monday stated that it would not send any representative to the sitting as it faulted the constitution of the panel by the Chief Justice. The panel gave the House 24 hours to send its representatives.
The House however rescinded the decision when the Governor’s counsel pointed out to the members of the panel that the absence of the lawmakers or their counsels could as well nullify the plot to impeach the Governor.
