It would be recalled that the governor and his deputy Bala Ngilari where served an impeachment notice about two weeks ago.

The document containing allegations of gross misconduct against the 2 top officials was signed by 19 out of 25 Adamawa House of Assembly members, who still remain firm in their decision and are not going back on it.

Meanwhile, a High Court sitting in Yola yesterday threw out Nayako?s application seeking to restrain the lawmakers from commencing the impeachment process.
