| Politics / Nasarawa Impeachment:crisis Hits Probe Panel Over Appointment Of Alleged APC,PDP by Clerverly: 6:25pm On Jul 28|
A crisis of confidence bordering on alleged partisanship and partiality is currently rocking the seven-man probe panel set up by the Nasarawa
State Chief Judge, Justice Suleiman Dikko, to investigate the alleged wrongdoings against Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura.http://tribune.com.ng/news/news-headlines/item/11844-nasarawa-impeachment-crisis-hits-probe-panel-over-appointment-of-alleged-apc-pdp-members
Those kicking against the composition of the membership of the panel, which they alleged was tilted in favour of the embattled governor, had also reportedly packaged petitions against Justice Dikko, to push for his dismissal by the National Judicial Council (NJC) if the panel is not disbanded.
The development is said to have brought uncertainty into the job of the panel, expected to begin full-blown proceedings after sallah break.
Complaints are coming from both the pro and anti-impeachment lawmakers over members of the panel, with those pushing for the impeachment feeling more hard done by.
The impeachment process ends constitutionally if the panel clears the governor of any wrongdoing on the 15 allegations of misconduct levelled against him.
The governor, who last week vowed to judicially stop the panel, made a U-turn at the weekend, by indicating his readiness to appear before it.
In the case of alleged partiality and partisanship being made against the members, it was alleged that the wife of the chairman of the panel, Yusuf Shehu Usman, is a known ally of wife of the state governor, as well as a female judge in the state.
It was also alleged that the older brother of the chairman, who died a few months back, was, until his death, a title holder in a particular emirate (name withheld) in the state, with loyalty to the emir (names withheld) who had allegedly been at the fore-front of the “save-Al-Makura” project.
The membership of Galadima Keffi, Alhaji Abdu Usman, was also being kicked against on the ground of alleged party membership.
It was contended that his son allegedly contested and lost the primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the chairmanship of the local government.
Usman is also alleged to be friends with the former governor of the state and APC leader, Alhaji Adamu Abdullahi.
Another member, Mohammed Sabo Keana, was alleged to be a politician whose impartiality could not be guaranteed.
He was the Secretary to the State Government in the administration of Alhaji Adamu Abdullahi.
He reportedly remains a card-carrying member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), while allegedly maintaining his relations with his former boss, despite being in different political parties.
The membership of Reverend Joel Galadima is also in contention, as he is a member of the state Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board as an appointee of the governor who is also reportedly his kinsman.
The appointment of both Pastor Daniel Chaga and Samuel Chaku was also said to be in alleged contravention of fair representation, as both were said to be from the same Wanba Local Government Area of the state, while no member was allegedly picked from the majority Eggon nation.
Eggon tribe is at the fore-front of political opposition to the governor over an alleged breach of gentleman agreement between him and Senator Solomon Ewuga to rotate the governorship on single-term basis.
Chaga and Chaku are allegedly nominated by the deputy Chairman of APC in the state, popularly called Lamus, reportedly the political leader of Wanba council.
The seventh member, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Usman, is allegedly a prominent member of Nsala sect and allegedly attended a solidarity meeting recently with the governor.
Nigerian Tribune also exclusively obtained what transpired between President Goodluck Jonathan and Nasarawa lawmakers at a close-door parley last week.
A source at the meeting disclosed that the National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Sambo Dasuki; Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Pius Anyim, told the lawmakers that the president was not happy about the circumstances surrounding the impeachment process and would want an end to it.
The lawmakers were, however, said to have resisted the move to stop the impeachment process, adding that they were irrevocably committed to it.
President Jonathan, who was said to be presiding over another meeting, reportedly met immediately with them.
The meeting with the president reportedly lasted about two hours, with the lawmakers said to have restated their commitment.
Jonathan’s worry was said to be about the alleged security report that arms were being stock-piled in the state and any crisis there could spill over to Abuja.
The said report also alleged that the impeachment was being largely resisted by elite in the state, because a Christian deputy governor would take over if a Muslim governor was sacked.
Jonathan’s fears were said to have been allayed and the meeting reportedly ended without the lawmakers giving any commitment.

Some pple may claim some of d rds are fg roads,but d Lag state gov does not hesitate to post its local gvt fee collecting touts,lastma and other assorted uniformed touts to dese rds to carry out their mandate of extortion.Similarly those wt any kind of income are taxed by d same state govt,but wen it comes to delivery dividends,LSG conveniently plays d ethnic and elitist card.
Shut up and face your state! Lagos has over 3,000 roads! So if your own is not captured in this year's budget, definitely by next year, they would do so.
Berem, you forgot to add, that the alternate road from Ajao Estate to Inner town of Ejigbo has been commissioned with about 2 bridges. So next time, while going there divert to Idimu and access Ajao Estate from Oluwole Ejigbo pending when the road is given attention.

President Goodluck Jonathan said calamity would have befallen Nigeria if former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari and Islamic scholar, Sheik Dahiru Bauchi, were killed in the July 23 bomb attacks in Kaduna.
The two leaders survived the attacks that killed more than 40 people.
Speaking when a delegation of the Muslim community, led by Vice President Namadi Sambo, paid him Sallah homage at his official residence, in Abuja on Sunday, President Jonathan appealed to clerics in the country to preach peace and unity to their followers “and not the gospel of hate”, saying that the country could not develop without peace.
He said, “Not too long ago we had these dastardly attacks in Kano and Kaduna. We stand to condemn these acts of terror on our people.
“And, we extend our condolence and sympathy to the bereaved and those who might have been injured.
“The recent attacks in Kaduna, especially where Sheik Dahiru Bauchi and Gen. Muhammadu Buhari were targets are quite instructive.
“You can imagine if these two people had died in the attacks.
“Sheik Bauchi is one of our top Islamic preachers; he has millions of followers. Buhari, a former Head of State and leading political figure, has massive supporters.
“On the same day, people wanted to kill them; those who planned the attacks are clearly sons of the devil, because if they had killed these two people, we wouldn’t have been here today; this country would have been in turmoil.
”We couldn’t have gathered here to celebrate.”
Mr. Jonathan thanked God for saving their lives and preventing “a major calamity” that would have befallen the country.
The president restated that the Federal Government was doing everything possible to end the activities of Boko Haram and other terrorist groups in the country.
He used the opportunity to renew his call on Nigerians to continue to
work with government in that regard.
“Government is looking on how to raise funds; in fact, we are launching the fund on Thursday.
“This is to ensure that the widows, orphans, those whose business premises have been vandalised and even our worship places, mosques and churches, that have been destroyed, we will rebuild.
“Government alone cannot do it because we will need huge sums of money. The Nigerian private sector is vibrant and willing if they see sincerity in government.
“We have demonstrated that very clearly and we are hopeful that on that day, reasonable amount of money will be raised.
“And, we will continue to raise money until we are able to cushion the effect of these excesses and at the same time, we are strengthening our security services so that they will be able to confront this menace,” he said.
Mr. Jonathan said that he was honoured by the visit of the Muslim community after the Ramadan and prayed God to listen to and answer their prayers.
Earlier, Mr. Sambo commended the president for fasting with Muslims during the Ramadan, and for welcoming the delegation to his residence.
He prayed God to continue to give the president wisdom and guidance to lead the country to greater prosperity.
The vice president also prayed for peace in Nigeria and for Allah to bring all evil, including Boko Haram, to an end.
He urged Nigerians to be their brother’s keepers “for peace, tranquility, total reconciliation and stability to reign in the country.”
During the visit, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Mohammed, paid homage to the president on behalf of Abuja residents.
He said; “We have always enjoyed humane and civil disposition that is why you see Muslims and Christians coming to pay homage in line with your exemplary leadership.
“We pray that Allah will grant you courage and wisdom to continue to steer the ship of leadership despite the current security challenges.”
