Abuja - Despite reports indicating an alleged plot to impeach embattled House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara, both minority and majority leaders have claimed that no scheme will come to fruition.
According to a Naij report, text messages had allegedly been sent to Representatives in an alleged move that will see Majority Leader Femi Gbajabiamila pitted against Dogara.
The alleged text message allegedly reads as follows: “Plot to destabilise the leadership of the House of Reps has taken a new dimension as the Attorney-General of the Federation, working with Gbajabiamila, Jibrin and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, has drafted charges to arraign and detain principal officers of the House so that the Transparency Group, who recently met with Tinubu’s wife, will effect a leadership change with Gbajabiamila as Speaker and Jibrin as the Deputy.

“This is why Jibrin did not mention Femi (Gbajabiamila) in his allegations. The 8th House won’t be anybody’s rubber stamp. We will resist them like the Senate resisted them.”
Gbajabiamila has since kicked back at the allegations, stating that he is not involved in a plot to remove the Speaker, Punch reports.
“The text message, which desperately seeks to finger me in some macabre plot to destabilise the House, is a throwback and echoes our dark post-speakership election history. The resurfacing of the faceless text messengers will not help us as a House, and let me quickly add that it will fail,” Gbajabiamila said via text message.
Minority Leader Leo Ogor has also spoken out against the alleged plot, warning that nobody should "dream of the idea" of removing Dogara as the House is not moving in that direction.
