The supreme court has thrown out Murtala Nyako’s appeal seeking to be reinstated as governor of Adamawa state.
Nyako had gone to the supreme court seeking reinstatement to complete his tenure after the appeal court in Yola declared his impeachment null and void.
But at the apex court on Friday, the seven-man panel of justices led by Tanko Mohammad dismissed the appeal as lacking merit.
“Because of the special facts enunciated in this appeal, that fact of compromising his case by his counsel is a cross that the appellant (Nyako) will continue to bear,” the panel held.
“So, there will never be a forum again where that issue of reinstatement would be raised again, and to that extent, that informs my dismissal of the appeal in its entirety.”
