Al-Makura Orders Investigation Of Predecessor’s Tenure

The rift between Nasarawa State Governor Tanko Al-Makura and former governor Abdullahi Adamu has taken another twist as Al-Makura has ordered a probe of Adamu’s administration.

Adamu was governor from 1999 to 2007.

The governor raised the probe panel yesterday at the swearing in of three permanent secretaries in the Government House in Lafia.

Senator Adamu, it was gathered, opposed the candidature of Abdullahi Sule, believed to be Al-Makura’s preferred choice for the 2019 governorship.

The probe committee is headed by the Commissioner for Finance Ayuba Dogara Ayenajeh.

The governor ordered the review of the concession agreement of all the state-owned hotels and other related facilities, including the New Keffi Hotel, Keffi; NIPDC conference Hotel, Lafia and the Keffi club, Keffi.

The committee is also mandated to review and investigate the circumstances which led to the failure of the Farin Ruwa Independent Hydro-Power Plant Project, as well as the Zimbabwean farmers projects.

It was gathered that Senator Adamu owns the New Keffi Hotel, and he started the Farin Ruwa project with huge capital, but there is nothing to show for it.

Al-Makura said: “As the party leader, I assure all aspirants that the government will ensure that opportunities remain boundless in the on-going process of party nominations. However, that should not be taken to mean that government has no right of its choice. To think so is foolhardy and mischievous. Since governance is a continuum, the government must be interested in who succeeds it for the sustenance of its legacy projects initiatives and landmark policies.

“Hence, the government is looking very critically at the utterances and conduct of some key actors in the ongoing nomination process with a view to taking appropriate position. I must also caution aspirants to monitor their social media platforms, because recent postings from such platforms are causing some concern. As it appears, such hateful postings are sanctioned by their principals.”
