Bindow threatens to unveil document indicting Nyako
The bickering between Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa State and his predecessor Murtala Nyako seems not over yet as Bindow has threatened to sign a document indicting the former leader of fraud allegations.
Bindow’s threat is coming days before the Supreme Court judgment on Nyako’s tenure and the conduct of the governorship election in the state.
While addressing a group known as “Team Bindow” which paid him a solidarity visit yesterday at Government House, Bindow said he has a document with him from the late Justice Bobboi Umar judicial panel of inquiry set up by Alhaji Umar Fintiri, the ex-acting governor indicting Nyako’s administration of massive fraud.
“I have a white paper before me indicting that administration which I don’t want to sign, but if pushed to the wall I will sign it. Many people are urging me to sign it, but I am reluctant,” Bindow said.
The governor claimed that his administration awarded a 5.7-kilometre road contract with drainage in Yola metropolis at the cost of N692 million while a contract of 4.3 kilometres in the metropolis was awarded by Nyako at the cost of N2.6 billion.
“I recently awarded contract for the 37-kilometre Kiri-Shelleng road at the cost of N3.2 billion while Nyako awarded the 37-kilometre Pela-Maiha road contract at the cost of N9.3 billion,” Bindow said.
The governor alleged that in an attempt to blackmail him, some of Nyako’s supporters had resorted to digging holes on the roads he constructed to give the impression that the projects were substandard.
“Somebody was seen in the midnight digging a hole on Yola bye-pass road to give the impression that the roads are substandard. They take pictures of the damaged roads and put them on Facebook to blackmail me,” Bindow stated.
