The ruling party has rejected the attempt by APC to blame the impeachment of Nyako on the ruling party and President Jonathan.
The party argued that what happened in the state was a demonstration of the power of the people under a democracy.
PDP, in a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, in Abuja, on Sunday, said in linking the party and the president to Nyako’s ouster, the APC was only being escapist, adding that such attitude could only come from pretenders to democracy.
According to PDP, “the impeachment of the former governor of Adamawa State was an act of democracy. It is a constitutional right, exclusively granted to the people of Adamawa.
“This, they exercised through the votes of the overwhelming majority of the elected members of the state House of Assembly, who also accorded the rule of law and due process rightful place in removing Nyako.”
The PDP said “if a sitting governor, who has spent over seven years in office, could be removed by more than two-third of the members of his state assembly, reasons should be located to fundamental factors within, rather than the trite excuses of external influence.”
