The All Progressives Congress, APC, caucus in the Senate, has vowed to resist any attempt by the presiding Officers of the National Assembly, to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Newsmen recalls, that the Senate is set to reconvene on Tuesday, following the suspension of Walter Onnoghen, as the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, and the appointment of Justice Ibrahim Muhammad, as the Acting CJN, by President Buhari.
However, the Bukola Saraki-led caucus in the National Assembly, will be meeting tonight, ahead of the emergency Legislative sitting, on Tuesday.
Speaking on behalf of the APC Senators, former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, told Reporters, in Abuja, that the President did not breach the Constitution by his action.
He said: “As members of the APC in the National Assembly, we will put the nation’s interest above any parochial or sectional consideration, in dealing with the issue.
“However, if anybody wants to start another trouble in the Senate over the issue, we are ready. We have the number, we have the strength, because we constitute the majority.
“It is just that the Senate Leadership wants to play to the gallery, otherwise, I do not see the same Leadership that accused the Judiciary of meddling in its affairs, now moving against the President, for fighting corruption in that arm of government.”
