According to a media source, the Senate was considering impeaching Senate President Godswill Akpabio for allegedly acting as President Bola Tinubu’s lap dog.
When lawmakers return from their two-month yearly leave on September 26, according to a media report on Saturday, some senators are allegedly scheming to impeach Akpabio. This was previously reported by Anaedoonline.ng.
According to a media report, some senators had already convened in Saudi Arabia to finalise the plans, and Akpabio had failed to fully attend to his colleagues’ needs and fulfil Nigerians’ expectations.
The Senate Spokesman, Yemi Adaramodu, responded to the report in a statement on Saturday, calling the claimed impeachment plot against Akpabio a fraud and an illusion.
The Senate spokesperson emphasised that the Red Chamber is a single, loving family and that Akpabio has carefully carried out the Senate’s constitutional and legislative responsibilities.
Adaramodu said: “Our attention has just been drawn to a syndicated satanic verses in a section of the media, of purported and illusory plots of leadership change in the Senate.
“The Nigerian Senate is one united and fraternal family. This imaginative composition is in the realm of the fake and fallacious story of 100 million per legislator.
“It’s apt to note that the 10th Senate, under the leadership of Senator Godswill Akpabio, has carried out its legislative and constitutional duties diligently.
“Within a span of less than 60 legislative days, the Senate has passed life-enhancing bills and motions. It has screened and confirmed Service Chiefs and Ministers, among others, apart from very essential oversight functions.
“We urge the fifth columnists, who operate undoubtedly outside the Senate, desperate to cause disharmony through media stunts and thus clipping the wings of Nigeria’s democracy, to take caution.
“The Senate should be allowed fresh air to settle down for its national assignments so that the Nigerian project can move forward.
“The media, too, should be discerning not to be used as hand tool to these retailers of fake and bad news.”
