A stalwart of Peoples Democratic party (PDP) in Nasarawa State, Mallam Ismaila Ibrahim has said that Governor Aliyu Akwe Doma has no hand in the trial of former governor Abdullahi Adamu by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Ibrahim who disclosed this in a chat with Daily Sun in Lafia on Tuesday also said the EFCC began to investigate Adamu shortly after he left office as governor, pointing out that it could take EFCC more than 10 years to investigate a case.
He said that 149-count charges against the former governor spoke for themselves as, according to him, ' the people of the Nasarawa State were living witness to what they went through in the eight years when Adamu was governor.
The PDP stalwart further explained that the former governor carried on as if the state was his empire and nobody complained because he was seen as demi-god.
Mallam Ibrahim therefore called on leaders in the country to always fear God when occupying elective offices as one day they would be asked to account for whatever they did either in this world or hereafter.
But in a sharp reaction, Mallam Idi Maidoya, a supporter of the former governor said a battle line had been drawn between the former governor and his successor.
Maidoya who described Akwe Doma as a betrayer also wondered why some people could witch-hunt the person that gave power to them overnight.
