The Supreme Court has finally put to rest the aspiration of former Adamawa State governor, Murtala Nyako returning as governor of the state, after the apex court failed to grant his prayer in respect of that.
Nyako had approached the Supreme Court to reinstate him as the governor of Adamawa State following the Court of Appeal judgement in February that ruled in his favour, declaring that his impeachment by the state House of Assembly was illegal and was not done in accordance with the provision of the law.
However, the Supreme Court in its verdict on his appeal to be returned, held that there was no way he would be reinstated, since he had removed the plea for reinstatement from his claims at the Court of Appeal.
It said there was no way he would be praying the Supreme Court for what he did not ask of at the Appeal Court.
Nyako got ejected from office in July 15, 2014, following the adoption of a report of a panel set up to investigate him for alleged corruption by 17 out of 25 members of the Adamawa State House of Assembly.
He was indicted on all 16 allegations of gross misconduct leveled against.
