 Justice Umar Bobboi, had made a report after a committee he chaired investigated the administration of Governor Murtala  Nyako for financial misappropriation and misconduct for advice before the state executive council takes decision.

Speaking at Government House Yola on Wednesday, the state Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Ahmed Sajoh, said the late Justice Umar Bobboi White Paper had investigated  and indicted, the administration of Governor Nyako between 2007-2014.

According to him, the White Paper was sent to the state ministry of justice for advice.

The advice, he said, was necessary to enable the State Executive Council to take a decision on it.

‘’The State Executive Council  at the meeting also ordered the full investigations into the activities of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from it inception to date in the state.

It would be recalled that Nyako was impeached by the state assembly in 2014.

After the impeachment the then speaker of the state assembly, Hon Ahmadu Fintiri, assumed the mantle of leaders as the acting governor of the state.

The Court of Appeal has however described the process that led to the  impeachment, and the impeachment itself, as null and  void and ineffective.
