I Will Never Withdraw My Memo Indicting Jonathan ––Nyako

The embattled former governor of Adamawa State Murtala Nyako has vowed never to withdraw the memo he addressed to the northern governors despite alleged intimidation and threats of arrest being planned against him by those who are currently leading the country.

Nyako, who made the disclosure through his spokesman Malam Ahmad Sajoh, while adding that he will never go back to the PDP, said information at his disposal showed that the Presidency and the Peoples Democratic Party were the main architects of his removal from office.

Nyako, had on July 4 exonerated the Presidency from the impeachment initiated by the lawmakers in the state shortly after his return to the state from Abuja. He had then blamed some senior Abuja based citizens of the state for his political travails, saying they wanted to distract him from serving the people of the state.

But all that has since changed. He said:

“We believe that he made the statement based on the information available to him as a retired Admiral in the Nigerian Navy; having a very sound military background, having been the person that had the privilege of setting up the intelligence unit of the Nigerian Navy and being a person that knows exactly what security issues are concerned, he weighed all the options before making that statement. And I can tell you that even on his death-bed, he stands by that statement.

“As a retired officer of the Nigerian Armed forces and gentleman and as a credible person, he has no regret dumping the PDP and he has no intention of returning to the party.”

Sajoh said, adding that Nyako stands by the memo he wrote to the northern governors. Stressing that he has no regret over his decision, he said, “Information now available and subsequent actions that were taken by the Presidency and the PDP national headquarters and other persons very close to the President must definitely make anyone change his position with regards to whether the Presidency was involved or not. But of course, at the time he made the statement, he made it, believing that it was an Adamawa internal affair. But with the turn of events and the things that happened at the time of the impeachment till date, one will not say the same thing today.”
Meanwhile, contrary to speculations that the embattled former governor might have slipped out of the country through the backdoor to avoid arrest by security agents, sources said he followed due process before leaving the country.

The testimony came against the backdrop of speculations that the Federal Government may soon declare the former governor wanted as efforts to locate his whereabouts by security agencies to answer charges of graft and treason against him proved abortive.

In the wake of impeachment proceedings against Nyako, the presidency has ordered the Attorney General of the Federation to compile charges of treason against Nyako so that he can be tried when finally impeached following a memo he sent to the northern governors accusing President Jonathan’s government of responsible for carrying out genocide against northerners.

A source told Leadership that ex-governor Nyako left the country on board a British Airways to London on Wednesday en route London. The source said after he finished his engagement in London, he will proceed to Saudi Arabia to perform this year’s lesser Hajj before proceeding to Germany where he will receive medical attention before returning to the country.
