A chieftain of the Adamawa chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Alhaji Abu Dan-Arewa, on Tuesday dismissed threats by Gov. Umar Bindow to indict former governor Murtala Nyako.

Dan-Arewa said the governors was only playing to the gallery as the former governor had no case to answer.

The News Agency of Nigeria [NAN] reports that Bindow had recently threatened to ratify the white paper on the report of a judicial commission which investigated the administration of the former governor.

The governor told members of his potical support group, Team Bindow, that the government may release the white paper if Nyako’s supporters continue their alleged sabotage of his administration.

Dan-Arewa claimed that the Justice Bobboi Umar Judicial Panel of Inquiry, set up by former acting governor, Umaru Fintiri did not complete its assignment.

“It is an empty threat because there is nothing like white paper as the said panel did not complete it’s assignment.”

Dan-Arewa said Fintiri, who set up the panel was removed from office by an Abuja High Court.

“Gov. Bala Ngilari who took over from Fintiri snubbed the panel, while the judgement of the Federal Court of Appeal, Yola Division on Nyako’s impeachment delivered in February this year declared Nyako’s impeachment as null and void and of no effect.

“Meaning, Fintiri’s administration which set up the panel does not exist by law.

“If Gov. Bindow wants any white paper to sign, he needs to set up another panel to probe Nyako, ” he stressed.

He cautioned Bindow against heating up the state, adding that the formation of the political support group by the governor was an attempt to commence campaign ahead of 2019.
