Politics APC Hails Yobe Legislators for Dismissing Gaidam's Impeachment Rumours



The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Yobe on Sunday said that the dismissal of alleged impeachment plot against Governor Ibrahim Gaidam by the state lawmakers has diffused tension among the citizenry.

A statement issued in Damaturu by the state's Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Abubakar Bakabe, said, "The party commended the timely response of the legislators to the allegation and also passed a vote of confidence on the governor.

The APC scribe said that the lawmakers’ decision had also calmed frayed nerves among APC supporters across the state.

He hailed the legislators "for refusing to be distracted by political job seekers planning to sow seed of discord among our party members and to over heat the polity".

"As the ruling party in the state, APC has a sitting governor, three senators, six members of House of Representatives, 24 members of the State House of Assembly and 17 local government chairmen. All the elected officers are collectively united and focused to the task of developing the state.

"The legislators under the leadership of the Speaker, Alhaji Adamu Dala-Dogo, have clearly disassociated themselves from the alleged impeachment plot and endorsed him (the governor) for 2015," he said.

The party expressed its support to the lawmakers, saying "we assure you of our strong support and commitment to protect our party structure and government’’.

Bakabe praised the people for their cooperation to the APC-led administration in the state which he pledged would continue to provide viable development projects.
