Gov. Murtala Nyako of Adamawa said on Saturday that he had forgiven all those planning to impeach him.
Nyako said this while addressing his supporters who paid him a solidarity visit at his residence in Yola.
The governor appealed to his supporters and all well-meaning citizens of the state to remain calm and pray to God to protect them from falling along ethnic and religious lines.
He described those behind his planned impeachment as the enemy of peace and the people of the state.
Nyako said that legitimate sons and daughters of the state would never cause hardship to their brothers and sisters.
“Despite the unwarranted state of emergency enforced on the people of the state coupled with the dust-to-down-curfew, some irresponsible elements based in Abuja are trying to create additional hardship for the people,” he said.
In her remarks, the Adamawa Women Leader, Ms. Hauwa Abba, stated that women and youths in the state were in the Governor’s residence to register their support and solidarity to him.
She disclosed that over 10,000 women and youths benefited from Nyako’s economic empowerment programmes in the state.
