PDP Mocks APC, Says Ruling Party Suffering From Defeat In NASS
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the fabrications by the
All Progressives Congress (APC) that the PDP plans to attack APC
senators as laughable, childish and shows that the Buhari Presidency and
the ruling party have come to a wits end in their plot to illegally
impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki and Deputy Senate President Ike
The party says the APC is hallucinating by linking it with any attempt
to attack anybody, including senators, whereas Nigerians are aware that,
if anything, it is the APC that has been involved in sponsoring violence
and attacks in the residences of the presiding officers of the Senate as
well as in the National Assembly.
Equally derisory is the APC’s claims that it is in talks with some PDP
senators to get a two third vote to impeach the Senate presiding
officers when it is public knowledge that all PDP senators are loyal to
their party and had already pledged their loyalty to the presiding
officer which they elected by themselves.
It is therefore foolhardiness for the leadership of the APC, to
contemplate a capacity to impeach the presiding officers of the National
Assembly whereas they are neither senators or members of the House of
It is also funny that rather than lobby senators and members on their
party position, if they have any, the APC leadership toed the path of
brigandage, claiming to have powers to upturn or upstage the leadership
that it did not ab-initio bring into existence.
Confronted by the realities of its shameful adventure, the APC
leadership has now turned around in its trademark shambolic character to
begin to look for scapegoats and who to hold responsible for their
It is necessary to impress it on the APC that Nigerians, in attracting a
democratic lifestyle, have since abandoned the garrison command
leadership approach of any Nigerian, no matter how highly placed.
Therefore, it is too late in the day for the APC to attempt to deploy
underhand tactics that are strange to democratic norms to remove a duly
elected Senate leadership.
