Assembly Speaker denies alleged plan to impeach Governor

Mijinyawa, during a special sitting of the house on Monday in Yola, described the alleged plan as “malicious”.

Adamawa State Governor, Muhammadu Jibrilla.

Alhaji Kabiru Mijinyawa, the Speaker, Adamawa House of Assembly, has dismissed alleged plans to impeach Gov. Muhammadu Jibrilla.

“The attention of the house is drawn over false publication that members of the house are gathering signatures to impeach the sitting governor.

“The publication was purely a mischief from the enemies of the state who always wish us bad luck,” Mijinyawa said.

Similarly, the Chief Whip of the house, Mr. Hassan Burguma, condemned the allegation.

Burguma, at a news conference in Yola on Monday, also said that the house had never signed any document to impeach the governor.

“As far as the house is concerned, there was nothing like impeachment discussion in the house.”

He assured that the house was ready to work with the press as partners.
