The embattled Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Al’Makura has expressed confidence that he will be vindicated by probe panel inaugurated by state Chief Judge, Justice Umaru Dikko to investigate 16-points impeachment allegations.
The Governor’s Senior Special Adviser on Public Affairs, Abdulhamid Kwarra stated that seven-team of Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SAN) will be defending the governor at the panel.
Kwarra said, “The governor will certainly appear before them (the panel) and after that we will go to the press and address them.”
He added that the governor is innocent of all allegations leveled against him by state House of Assembly, noting governor’s legal team are capable of defending him.
It would be recalled that the state chief judge on Friday set up a seven-man panel to probe the governor over the allegations leveled against him of gross misconduct of financial impropriety and breached of oath of office by the state House of Assembly.
The panel is expected to submit their report to the house within 14 days.
