Senate debunks rumoured plot to impeach Akpabio

The Senate has refuted a media report that some senators are planning to impeach the President of the Senate, Senator  Godswill Akpabio.

The Chairman Senate Committee on Media and Publicity, Sen. Yemi Adaramodu, said this through a statement in Abuja on Saturday.

“Our attention has just been drawn to a syndicated satanic verses 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 100 million per legislator.

“It is apt to note that the10th Senate, under the leadership of Sen. Godswill Akpabio has carried out its legislative and constitutional duties diligently.

“Within a span of less than 60 legislative days, the senate has passed life-enhancing bills and motions,” he said. 

He added that: “It has screened and confirmed Service Chiefs and Ministers, among others, apart from very essential oversight functions.

“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.

”The Senate should be allowed fresh air to settle down for its national assignments, so that the Nigerian project can move forward.”

He urged the media to be discerning not to be used as a tool by the retailers of fake and bad news.
