I hosted senators in Buhari’s interest — Sen Wamakko
A former governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko (APC, Sokoto North), yesterday, denied reports that meetings were held at his house to strategise on how to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
It would be recalled that at the end of a closed door session on Tuesday, some senators reportedly threatened to impeach Buhari.
An online news platform reported that the impeachment plot started from the Abuja residence of senator Wamakko.
But Wamakko, in a statement he issued, yesterday, said that he only hosted his colleagues once, adding that the meeting was convened to address the impasse between the executive and the legislature.
The statement read: “My attention was drawn to a false and malicious story published by an online newspaper, that series of meetings were held in my residence to strategize on the impeachment proceedings of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“To set the records straight, a meeting was only held in my residence towards finding amicable solution to the frosty relationship between the Executive and Legislature.
“We have observed the growing disharmony between the two arms, and we resolved that finding amicable solution to the impasse will move the nation forward and give the president focus to pursue his change agenda.
