Efforts made by Governor Murtala Nyako to buy time and further push his imminent impeachment forward via the declaration of Monday and Tuesday as work free days in the state might have proved futile as the panel set up to investigate the allegations leveled against him defied the public holiday to commence sitting.
The Adamawa State Acting Chief Judge, Ambrose Mammadi had constituted a seven-member panel to look into the impeachable offences levelled against the Governor.
While speaking on the operations, the Registrar of the High Court, Abubakar Babayola pointed out that the inauguration of the committee was not a requirement for the commencement of its duties.
Street Journal gathered that the panel had its maiden sitting under heavy security presence at the J & J Holiday Villa, Atirwucha Close, Yola.
While Governor Nyako’s supporters have opined that it is not right for an investigative panel not to be duly inaugurated, the High Court Registrar disclosed that the constitution does not stipulate that such panels should be inaugurated before they start sitting.
