Commissioners deny dumping Nyako

23 July 2014, 17:31

Yola - Commissioners who served under former Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa, have denied dumping Nyako and the All Progressives Congress (APC) and planning to defect to the PDP.

The Acting governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, dissolved Nyako’s cabinet and held a closed door meeting with his commissioners at their request.

The meeting led to the allegation that the commissioners had abandoned the former governor.

Reacting to the allegation, Aminu Iyawa, the Chairman of Nyako’s Commissioners Forum, said the meeting they held with Fintiri had nothing to do with Nyako or their defecting to the PDP.

"We only used the opportunity to request the acting governor to settle our entitlements like the severance allowance.

"Nothing was discussed about Nyako and there was no request for us to move to PDP.

Iyawa described the allegation that the commissioners did nothing to stop Nyako’s impeachment as "unfortunate’’.

He said that they were actively engaged in making contacts with relevant stakeholders to stop the impeachment.
