The Nasarawa State House of Assembly has requested that the investigative panel set up to look into the several allegations against the State Governor, Tanko Al-Makura be dissolved.

The panel, headed by Mr Yusuf Usman, was set up by the Nasarawa State Chief Judge, Justice Suleiman Dikko, to inquire into the 16-count impeachment charges levelled against the Governor by the Nasarawa state lawmakers.

The Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Mr Mohammed Ibaku, while speaking in Abuja said that the panel lacks the credibility to carry out its duty effectively..

Mr Ibaku in his address argued that the Assembly based its decision on a petition written by a group known as Nasarawa Concerned Citizens, alleging irregularities in the composition of the panel.

The House took the decision, while sitting away from the Assembly complex in Lafia, the state capital. They met in Karu local government area due to what they have considered as high state of insecurity in the state capital.

The House is requesting that a new panel be set up by the state Chief Judge to attain a transparent resolution at the end.
