The National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has dismissed the purported plan by some senators to impeach President Buhari, describing it as “a huge joke”.
In a press statement by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, the APC said, “This is a huge joke taken too far.”
The party advised the senators in question to “stop the ‘huge joke’ and concentrate on their primary constitutional responsibilities of lawmaking and discharging of their legislative mandates to their constituents at the National Assembly”, urging them not to allow political shenanigans becloud overall national interest.
“The Party will not to join issues on the Senate forgery suit and other court cases concerning some members of the 8th Senate because it will be sub judice.
“We advice the Senators in question to tow the same line and allow judicial processes run it normal and legitimate course.
“Repeated allegations that the court cases are politically-motivated by the President and the APC are baseless.
“The President Muhammadu Buhari administration strictly respects the principle of the Rule of Law and also adheres to the constitutional provisions of Separation of Power between the three arms of government,” the APC stated.
The party urged President Buhari and the entire cabinet to remain focused in its effort to deliver on election promises and to steer the nation to its deserved heights.
