The national leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen Ahmed Bola Tinubu, has alleged that some members of the National Assembly were planning to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari. But he warned the plotters to drop their sinister move because it is not “possible for a lizard to wrestle an antelope’’. Tinubu spoke yesterday at the formal defection of ex-senate Minority Leader, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, at a packed full Ikot Ekpene township stadium in Akwa Ibom. He described what is happening in the country now as a war between progressives and the conservatives. “We believe in government of the people, for the people and by the people but the conservatives believe in government of sharing.
“We say Nigerian money belongs to Nigerians. We say Nigerians must be given development. We believe in investing in the people. Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senators have dismissed as wishful thinking, allegation of plot by them to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari, saying impeachment of the President is so arduous and demanding which no sane persons could contemplate carrying out at the twilight of another election.
The senators said the APC with all apparatus and executive power has found it almost impossible to impeach the Senate President, Bukola Saraki inisiting that the allegation of them PDP making attempt to impeach President Buhari is laughable.
Senate Minority whip, Senator Philip Aduda (FCT,PDP); Chairman, Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petition, Senator Samuel Anyawu (PDP Imo East) and Senator Suleiman Adokwe (PDP, Nasarawa State) who spoke with LEADERSHIP said they know nothing about such plot. According to Senator Aduda, ‘’Tinubu had just said what suit him at the moment. It is wishful thinking. I am not aware of such plot or any impeachment move against President Buhari’’. Senator Anyawu said, ‘’There is nothing like that. It is rather the other way round because it is the APC senators who are wangling hard to impeach Senate President. APC is renowned for propaganda, and this is just one of such’’.Senator Adokwe also said, ‘’APC as a ruling party and with all the state apparatus and executive power or resources has been unable to impeach the senate president all this while. How can we with little or no means to exert our wishes attempt to impeach President Buhari? How can we be making such attempt against these people that are so ruthless? That would be a suicidal attempt. It is only the Nigerian masses that can remove Buhari. Besides, we have very few months left to end this tenure and all of us are preparing for the next year elections”.
