Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki has condemned the impeachment of Adamawa State governor Murtala Nyako by the State House of Assembly yesterday.
Saraki (APC, Kwara Central) told journalists in Abuja that Nyako’s sack was unfortunate. He alleged that four other APC governors have been penciled down for impeachment 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.”
Saraki 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 said: “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.”
