Yola - Former Gov. Murtala Nyako of Adamawa has described the plan by the Acting Governor of the State to probe his administration as “ridiculous.”
The acting governor, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, in a state-wide broadcast on Tuesday, announced that Nyako’s administration which he accused of leaving N82 billion liability, would be probed.
A statement issued in Yola on Wednesday by Malam Ahmad Sajoh, Nyako’s Director Press and Publicity, said the planned probe was an attempt to discredit the former governor and pitch him against the people of Adamawa.
“To say Nyako left a liability of N82 billion is to say the least, ridiculous.”
“How much did the state get as income over the period? It is not even half of the amount quoted,” the statement said.
It stressed that the probe would not be fair, adding that Nyako was already in court challenging his impeachment and was full of hope that the judiciary would vindicate him.
