Adamawa Lawmakers accuses Speaker of plotting to impeach Gov Ngilari

Some members of Adamawa House of Assembly have alleged that the Speaker, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, has commenced plot to impeach Gov Bala Ngilari.
The 11 lawmakers who address the press in Yola said since the emergence of Ngilari as subtantive Governor of Adamawa, Fintiri who served as acting Governor was not happy and had been doing everything possible to frustrate the Governor. This led  to a frosty relationship between  the executive and the legislature.

” Our speaker has already initiated impeachment proceedings against the Governor.

” Since Ngilari became the Governor of Adamawa, Fintiri has refused  to take us to him to pay our respect”, Kundisi said.

Kundisi who was flanked by 10 other lawmakers also accused the speaker of planning to suspend some of them for distancing themselves from his plan to impeach the Governor.

He also said the Speaker is working for the opposition party alleging that he was supporting SDP candidate for Adamawa North Senatorial District and that he has not been participating in PDP campaigns in the state.

Reacting to the development, the Spokesman  of the House, Hon Adamu Kamale, described the allegation as baseless.

He said that the Governor gave out N200million to the lawmakers to impeach the speaker.
