Politics FG not Behind Al-Makura's Impeachment Saga in Nasarawa – Maku says at Rally



The Minister of Information, Mr Labaran Maku, said the Federal Government was not behind the impeachment saga in Nasarawa State.

He also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not be intimidated by the antics of the Governor to evade justice "by instigating violence in the state."

The minister spoke at a solidarity rally staged by the PDP in support of the state’s legislators pushing for the impeachment of Governor Tanko Almakura (APC).

He cautioned the state government to desist from the use of thugs to intimidate state legislators in what was strictly a constitutional matter.

He urged youths in the state to remain calm but strong as the party would support the legislature to pursue the matter to its logical conclusion.

The Chairman of PDP in the state, Mr Yunana Iliya, who presented a solidarity letter to the Clerk of the House, said the party was behind the lawmakers.

He said the state PDP was solidly behind the legislators, urging them to remain strong in the discharge of their constitutional mandate.

Iliya warned the ruling All Progressives Congress that the party would resist attempts by the state government to intimidate its members in the legislature.

He affirmed their solidarity and support for the House of Assembly’s impeachment move against the governor.
