The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has dismissed the reports of a plot by some Senators to impeach him once the lawmakers return from their annual vacation.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that there were reports of moves by some aggrieved lawmakers who lost out in the lobby for juicy Senate Committees as masterminds of the plot.
The reports added that two former governors from the North West are leading the plan to impeach the Senator representing Akwa Ibom North West as Senate President.
However, Akpabio, in a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Honourable Eseme Eyiboh, described the reports as a “syndicated media attack from outside the precincts of the National Assembly.”
The statement reads in part, “Senators are presently concluding their holidays in their constituencies and other places they have chosen to spend their time after the rigours of the inauguration and ministerial screening.
“All senators are also refreshing themselves ahead of resumption, and suggestions that they are presently engaged in other subversive plots against the institution is rather uncharitable. It is especially uncharitable for those Senators who initially did not support the emergence of the leadership but who have all unanimously endorsed the Senator Akpabio-led leadership.
” Continuing to link these Senators with one conspiracy or the other with barely disguised innuendo is rather unkind. We call on the Media not to give in to the conspiratorial tales and to please not give damage to the reputations that they have built over time,” he concluded.
