The acting Chief Judge of the state, Justice
Ambrose Mammadi, swore Mr. Ngilari in
Wednesday, hours after a federal court in Abuja
sacked the acting governor of the state, Umar
Fintiri.
Mr. Fintiri, a former speaker of the state House of
Assembly, took over after the impeachment of
Mr. Nyako and the controversial “resignation” of
the deputy, Mr. Ngilari.
Mr. Ngilari had complained that his “resignation”
letter, constitutionally required to have gone to
the ousted governor, was instead received and
acted upon by the then speaker, Mr. Fintiri.
An Abuja Federal High Court on Wednesday
granted Mr. Ngilari’s request that Mr. Fintiri be
removed and he be sworn in immediately as
governor.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola held that Mr. Ngilari did
not resign from office as deputy governor in line
with Section 306 (1) (2) and (5) of the 1999
Constitution as amended.
The judge also ordered the Independent National
Electoral Commission, INEC, to stop the state
governorship bye-election slated for Saturday,
October 11, and granted all the reliefs sought by
Mr. Ngilari.
