Group tells sen­a­tors to thread softly

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Ifah Ele Sun­day

A non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion, De­vel­op­ment Watch­dog Con­cept (DWC), has con­demned the al­leged threat by some sen­a­tors to ini­ti­ate im­peach­ment pro­ceed­ings against Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari.

Chair­man of DWC, Al­haji Abubakar Mo­hammed Abu Abuja, who spoke to re­porters on be­half of the group in Abuja, said the threat was not only con­demnable but also threat­ened na­tional in­ter­est.

Abu Abuja said: “The self­ish ac­tion of the sen­a­tors was quickly ex­posed by the Almighty at this cru­cial pe­riod in the his­tory of coun­try. Nige­ri­ans are fully pre­pared to re­sist any at­tempt that will sub­vert their man­date.

“The lead­er­ship of the Se­nate has lost the re­spect of the peo­ple; they only think of them­selves and not the peo­ple that they are rep­re­sent­ing and it is un­for­tu­nate that we have found our­selves in this mess,” he said.

He said the sen­a­tors should be re­minded that the gen­er­al­ity of the masses who voted for Buhari would re­main prayer­ful un­til those sab­o­tag­ing the sys­tem were iden­ti­fied and pros­e­cuted.
