The Senate dismissed media reports on Saturday that some disgruntled senators were plotting to impeach Senate President Godswill Akpabio.
On Saturday, some media outlets reported that some lawmakers were plotting to impeach Akpabio.
According to reports, some senators, whose identities were not revealed, had already met in Saudi Arabia to plan the move.
However, in a statement issued on Saturday, Senate spokesperson Yemi Adaramodu called the report “a ruse.”
Our attention has just been drawn to a syndicated satanic verse 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 N100million per legislator. It is apt to note that the 10th Senate, under the leadership of Senator Godswill Akpabio, has carried out its legislative and constitutional duties diligently.
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.
Similarly, Akpabio dismissed the report, calling it “complete imaginations and sometimes laced with malice to achieve what senators are yet to comprehend.”
His spokesman, Eseme Eyiboh, said the Senate was “stable and unperturbed by what appears to be a syndicated media attack from outside the precincts of the National Assembly.”
