The Senator representing Kwara Central, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has condemned Tuesday’s impeachment of Adamawa State Governor, Rear Admiral Murtala Nyako (retd) by the State House of Assembly.
Saraki, who is a two-time governor of Kwara State, told journalists in Abuja that Nyako’s sack was unfortunate. He also alleged that four other All Progressives Congress, APC, governors have been penciled down for similar treatment by the Federal Government.
He said, “It is very unfortunate and I think we are seven months to the end of the tenure. We all need to look at the bigger picture, look at the stability of our democracy.
“After Adamawa, I think Nasarawa state governor is being served with impeachment notice and three other states are going to be served”.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Environment and Ecology, added that “the bigger issue in this country now is the issue of security, and poverty. Some of the issues raised against the Adamawa State Governor can also apply anywhere and we need to be mature with our democracy”.
He warned that “The issue of impeachment should not be our priority at this stage and those of us that love this country will really need to talk to ourselves and be more concerned instead of dissipating our energy on issues that will divide us by overheating the polity and creating problems for ourselves.
“Those who are beating the drums now should know that it will come back to them”, Saraki said.
