There is growing anxiety in Yola, the Adamawa State Capital, as residents await Friday’s Supreme Court judgment on the case filed by former governor, Murtala Nyako, seeking reinstatement.
Nyako, whose impeachment of 2014 was declared “null , void and of no effect” by the Court of Appeal in Yola, had gone to Supreme Court seeking re-instatement to complete his tenure.
The development has pitched his supporters against those of serving Gov. Muhammadu Bindow.
The groups are now engaged in debates as they prepare to role out the drums to celebrate the outcome of the judgement.
“I am enthusiastic that Nyako will be back today to complete his tenure. We have confidence in the Supreme Court to do the needful”, said Ahijo Babangida, a supporter of Nyako.
On the other hand, Umar Hamman, a supporter of Bindow said, “there is no way for Nyako to return, his tenure is over and need to accept the fact in good faith.”
