Politics Nasarawa Lawmakers Abandon State House to Deliberate on Al-Makura Impeachment Investigation Panel




For unknown reasons, the Nasarawa State House of Assembly has abandoned the Assembly Complex in the state capital, Lafia, and relocated to Karu LGA in order to hold a sitting, which at this moment is ongoing, to deliberate on a petition against the state Chief Judge, Suleiman Dikko, over the composition of the seven-member panel raised to investigate allegations against Governor Umaru Al-Makura.

The Peoples Democratic Party, #PDP-dominated Assembly had asked the chief judge to set up the panel as part of the impeachment process of Mr. Al-Makura, Premium Times say.

The governor, a member of the All Progressives Congress, #APC, has denied any wrongdoing and his party has condemned the impeachment process and blamed the PDP and the presidency for it.
