The Reformed-All Progressives Congress has alleged of fresh plans by All Progressives Congress, APC, national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole to impeach the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
The R-APC urged Nigerians to be vigilant as the nation’s democratic credentials could once again be tested as a result of the desperation of the Adams Oshiomhole-led “factional All Progressives Congress to use its members in the National Assembly to destabilise the Senate in a bid to force the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, out of office should the National Assembly reconvene on Tuesday.”
The allegation was contained in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the R-APC, Kassim Afegbua, on behalf of the R-APC’s National Working Committee in Abuja on Sunday.
The statement read: “The National Working Committee of the R-APC had it on good authority that the Adams Oshiomhole-led faction of the All Progressives Congress had perfected plans to make the Tuesday, August 14 resumption date another day to pursue the illegal impeachment of the Senate President.
“This time, they are hell-bent on giving nebulous interpretation to the provision of the 1999 constitution (as amended) by using the numbers of senators present to provoke an impeachment.
“To this end, they have called on all the APC senators to make it a point of duty to participate at the plenary on Tuesday to pass a vote of “no confidence” in the Senate President. This will be followed by an orchestrated rancourous plenary session from where an impeachment motion would be raised and their illegality perpetrated.”
