Justice Suleiman Dikko, the Chief Judge of Nasarawa State, yesterday inaugurated a seven-member panel to investigate the allegation of gross misconduct leveled against Governor Umaru Al-Makura by the state assembly.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the state lawmakers had on July 23 passed a resolution directing the Chief Judge to set up the probe panel within seven days in line with the provisions of the constitution.

Inaugurating the panel yesterday in Lafia, Dikko said that setting up of the committee was in line with the state assembly’s request to appoint a seven man panel to investigate the governor.

Those in the panel are MalamYusuf Usman (Chairman); Malam Mohammed Sabo Keana; Rev. Joel Galadima; Alhaji Abdul Usman; Mr Samuel Chaku; Malam Mohammed Sani Usman and Pastor Daniel Chaga as members.

The chief judge urged the members to discharge their duties in line with Section 188, Sub-section 1-11 of the 1999 Constitution as amended.

The section read: “A panel appointed under this section shall have powers and exercise its functions in accordance with such procedure as may be prescribed by the house of assembly and within three months of its appointment report its findings to the house of assembly.”

It will be recalled that the state assembly had on July 14, resolved to serve Al-Makura impeachment notice over alleged gross misconduct.
