Adamawa State House of Assembly in Yola has impeached the state Governor Murtala Nyako on the premise that the governor is guilty of gross misconduct.
It was gathered by newsmen that the State Assembly Speaker, Ahmadu Fintiri, would be sworn in as the governor by 4pm today(Tuesday).
Eighteen out of the 24 members of the Assembly voted to impeach the governor after adopting the report of the seven-man panel set up to investigate allegations of gross misconduct against the governor and his deputy, Bala Ngilari.
Ngilari, however, submitted his letter of resignation to the Assembly on Tuesday morning, hours before the lawmakers could sack him and his principal.
