Zamfara Assembly begins impeachment of Governor Yari

The cold war between the Zamfara State Government and state legislature has deepened, as the state house of assembly initiated impeachment process against Governor Abdulaziz Yari for alleged official corruption.

Already, the state Department of Security Service had detained the Assembly Speaker, his deputy, the majority whip and supporting staff, when the news filtered out on Tuesday that the lawmakers were planning to impeach the Governor.

The house in a statement by its spokesman, Alhaji Manir Gidan-Jaja, on Wednesday listed six impeachable offences against the governor, including alleged misappropriation of the N11 billion bail-out fund, and the N1 billion agricultural loan from the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The lawmakers also accused the Governor of frequent travelling outside the country, and failing to remit funds deducted from the pensions and gratuities to the appropriate bodies.
