A claim by some senators that they will initiate impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari is “a huge joke” taken too far.
Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC stated this when it got media reports of the said claim.
In a press statement signed by the party’s National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, the Party advised the Senators in question to stop the joke and concentrate on their primary constitutional responsibilities of lawmaking and discharging of their legislative mandates to their constituents at the National Assembly.
The APC also said that it would not join issues on the Senate forgery suit and other court cases concerning some members of the 8th Senate because it would be sub judice.
“We advise the Senators in question to tow the same line and allow judicial processes run its normal and legitimate course.
Repeated allegations that the court cases are politically-motivated by the President and the APC are baseless. The President Muhammadu Buhari administration strictly respects the principle of the Rule of Law and also adheres to the constitutional provisions of Separation of Power between the three arms of government”.
The APC urged Mr. President and the entire cabinet to remain focused on their duty of steering the nation to greater heights.
