The Supreme court has rejected the move by Former Adamawa state Governor Murtala Nyako to return to office.
The Court held that the Nyako had removed the plea for reinstatement from his claims at the court of Appeal and hence could not ask for same at the Supreme Court.
It could be recalled that Court of Appeal declared his impeachment by the Adamawa House of Assembly as illegal.
He was removed on July 15 2014 after 17 of 25 member of Adamawa State House of Assembly report that found the governor guilty of all 16 allegations of gross misconduct after an investigation conducted by the EFCC.
It is unclear if Nyako will seek to contest for the same position in 2019. He is still a member of the All Progressives Party (APC).
