Abuja - The Senate has chided the All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership for believing media reports that the senate is planning to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari, Naij reports.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, the Senate said the comments credited to the National Secretary of the party, Mai Bala Buni, on the falsehood being spread by SaharaReporters will merely give credibility to a news item which members of the public had disregarded, knowing the reputation of the source.
The Senate said the party should have cross-checked what actually happened at the executive session which held on Tuesday, July 12, from its members in attendance.
He further urged the party to always kindly seek to find out the truth about any statement, issue or development in the National Assembly before taking a public position as the comment by the party can further create tension and give a wrong impression, particularly when it is not founded on genuine or factual ground.
The APC according to News24 described as a huge joke taken too far the threat by some senators to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari, saying the senators in question should concentrate on their constitutional responsibilities.
In a statement signed by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni and made available to journalists in Abuja, the party said the senators should not allow personal interest to over ride national interest.
APC asked senators to allow the principles of rule of law prevail in the ongoing trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, over alleged forgery of Senate standing rules, saying their action could be regarded as subjudice since the matter is already before the court.
