|Ag. Gov Umar Fintiri|
Following the impeachment of Murtala Nyako as governor Adamawa state, North-East Nigeria, Alhaji Adamu Umar Fintiri, the Speaker of the state house of assembly is to be sworn in as Acting Governor in the interim.
This is was contained in a motion passed by the House of Assembly after the then Governor was impeached by 18 Members of the State House of Assembly on tuesday the 15th of July 2014.
Today's resolution marks Fintiri's second coming as Acting Governor of Adamawa state as he was sworn in as Acting Governor shortly after the Supreme Court Judgement of Friday 27th January 2012 which declared the elongated tenure of five governors illegal and consequently sacked them.
The governors are Ibrahim Idris (Kogi); Murtala Nyako (Adamawa); Timipre Sylva (Bayelsa); Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto); and Liyel Imoke (Cross River). Murtala Nyako was later re-elected in controversial circumstances in the state gubernatorial elections of February 2012.
