Se­nate faults APC’s re­ac­tion to im­peach­ment ru­mour

Daily Trust - - IN­SIDE POL­I­TICS - By Is­mail Mu­dashir

The Se­nate yes­ter­day said the APC lead­er­ship made un­war­ranted com­ments on mere spec­u­la­tion and fabri­ca­tion on a pur­ported plan to im­peach Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari.

A state­ment by the spokesper­son of the Se­nate, Se­na­tor Aliyu Sabi Ab­dul­lahi, said the APC re­acted when it had all the op­por­tu­nity to cross-check from its mem­bers, what ac­tu­ally hap­pened at the ex­ec­u­tive ses­sion which held on Tues­day.

“We ex­pected the party to at least ex­plore all the op­tions open to it to ver­ify that piece of fabri­ca­tion which is only the fig­ment of the imag­i­na­tion of the writ­ers and their spon­sors. It should be clear to the APC lead­er­ship that if there is any truth to that story, it should have been cred­ited to a par­tic­u­lar se­na­tor who was at the ex­ec­u­tive ses­sion.

“It is ev­i­dent from our pro­ceed­ings of yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day) that the Se­nate it­self was shocked that such a fabri­ca­tion, which con­sti­tutes a breach of the priv­i­leges of the sen­a­tors, was pub­lished, and that was why we man­dated our com­mit­tee on Ethics, Priv­i­leges and Public Pe­ti­tions to in­ves­ti­gate the source and cir­cum­stances lead­ing to the emer­gence of such a fabri­ca­tion.
