The Nasarawa State government yesterday advised the state House of Assembly members against re-launching impeachment process against Governor Umaru Tanko Al-makura.
Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Public Affairs, Mallam Abdullhamid Kwarra, told newsmen in Lafia that such moves would disrupt governance in the state.
“The 1999 Constitution made it clear that once the panel clears the governor of any allegation or allegations, the matter in contention must be brought to an end in its entirety.
“The Constitution states in section 188 sub-section 8 that where the panel reports to the House of Assembly that allegations have not been proved, no further proceedings shall be taken on the matter” the SSA stated.
He urged the lawmakers to partner with the state government in moving the state forward.
“It beholds on us to call on the assembly members to partner the state governor in his effort to change the fortunes of the state and guide it on the path of progress,” he said.
Kwarra also reaffirmed the commitment of the Al-makura’s administration to create an enabling environment for the three arms of government to coexist without hindrance. (NAN)
