Governor Umaru Tanko Almakura of Nasarawa state

Senator Abdullahi Adamu (APC-Nasarawa West) has described the panel constituted by Governor Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State to investigate him as a political misadventure that will fail.

In a statement on Thursday by his Legislative Aide, Jibrin Abdullahi, the lawmaker described the probe as “an exercise in futility that was clearly misguided.”

He said the probe panel “was hastily done to see if I’ll be forced into accepting the abuse of democratic process enshrined in the constitution of our party, the ruling APC, in the process of selecting a governorship aspirant of the party for the 2019 election.

“That, I believe, shouldn’t come from a person who is politically mature and wants to be reckoned with even after he leaves office.”
