Bello Adoke, the attorney-general of the federation, has directed Garba Umar, the acting governor of Taraba, to immediately hand over power to Abubakar Danladi in order to prevent a vacuum.

Adoke said this in a statement signed by Abdullahi Yola, the solicitor-general of the federation, which was made available to journalists in Abuja on Friday.

He said the directive became necessary following the nullification of the impeachment of the former deputy governor, Abubakar Danladi, by the Supreme Court on November 21.

“Pursuant to the Supreme Court judgment, the honourable attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice, Mohammed Adoke, hereby directs the Taraba acting governor, Garba Umar to immediately hand over,” the statement read.

“Garba should hand over the reins of governance to the Abubakar Danladi to ensure smooth transition and to prevent a vacuum in governance in the state.

“It will also guarantee the maintenance of constitutional order.”

Adoke also called on Suleiman Abba, the inspector-general of police, to provide adequate security in the state in order to prevent any breakdown of law and order during the transition period.

Danladi was impeached by Taraba legislators on October 4, 2012 and replaced by Umar, who became acting governor, following the involvement of Danbaba Suntai, governor of the state, in a plane crash.
