The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop deluding themselves and come to terms with the reality that they lack the legislative number and constitutional facilities to impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki and Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu.
The PDP in a statement Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said “government’s illegal efforts” to dislodge the current National Assembly leadership is overheating the polity.
“The PDP cautions the Buhari Presidency and the APC to stop overheating the polity with their outbursts and shed future perverse attempts to circumvent our rules and constitution, as such will not help them or change the resolve of Nigerians to vote them out in 2019.”
“Now that they have discovered that there is no way they can achieve their devious intentions, they have commenced a war of blackmail, distortions of fact and media trial against the Senate leadership, which, of course, will end up as another wasteful venture as Nigerians are aware of the long-drawn desperation of the Buhari Presidency to annex the legislature.”
“Nigerians were already aware of moves to use humongous funds to induce lawmakers to trigger crisis in the National Assembly and pave the way for the removal of presiding officers,” the PDP said.
