By Henry Umoru Abuja
THE embattled governor of Adamawa State, Admiral Murtala Nyako yesterday stormed the national secretariat of the  Peoples Democratic Party, PDP  and boasted that there was no going  back on  the action he took.

The governor who was summoned by the Alhaji Bamanga Tukur led National Working Committee, NWC to explain what the party termed his unethical behaviour told the leadership of the party that  the local government election conducted in his state on Saturday 24th of November stands.

Nyako who told the NWC members  that  the result of the election was  not determined  by the party,  said, “Of course the election stands. The result of the election is not determined by the party. It is determined by the State Independent Electoral Commission (SIEC).”

The governor  was drilled by members of the  NWC with the Deputy National Chairman, Sam Sam Jaja presiding  for more than two hours.

His coming to the National Secretariat yesterday  followed  his invitation by the leadership of the party  to explain why disciplinary action should not be carried out against him for subverting the party directive for conducting local government primary in the state.

Answering questions  from Journalists after the meeting on the harmonized list which  was presently  generating controversy between the governor and the party, Nyako said, “What ever we had to do was done in the best interest of the party.

”I can assure you that it will not become problem when we want to do it, because whatever we had to do have to be in the best interest of the party and our state.”

When asked further  why he was at the party’s  national secretariat, the governor asked,  “is it any thing wrong in attending a family meeting. The big family of PDP will like to put their heads together.”
