Gov-Al-makuraBy Umar Muhammad Puma

Nasarawa state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Mr. Yunana Iliya has faulted a statement credited to Mr. Lai Mohammed, national publicity secretary of the All Progressive Congress (APC) over Governor Umaru Al-Makura’s impeachment saga.

In a statement issued yesterday in Abuja, Iliya said it is irresponsible of Lai Mohammed to accuse the presidency and the PDP of inducing the state lawmakers to impeach governor Al-Makura.

He noted that the APC publicity secretary was fond of making unguided utterances and statements capable of undermining the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

He pointed out that impeachment was a constitutional matter and should be devoid of politics, according to him, “Lai Mohammed chose to ignore the fundamental issues raised in the impeachment notice, which bothered on corruption and extra budgetary expenses. If truly Governor Umaru Al-Makura is not guilty of those offences raised in the impeachment notice, the constitution should be followed to the latter in order for him to be exonerated.

Adding that the APC should have sanctioned Governor Al-Makura for destabilizing the party in the state as it has suffered lost under his watch.

“When Governor Al-Makura came on board, APC has three House of Representatives members and one  Senator, but now, reverse is the case as APC has only one House of Representatives. member.

“So we wonder what value Al-Makura has added to the party that they have to go the extra mile out of the Constitution to defend him after disintegrating the party,” he said.
