Senate denies Impeachment rumour against Akpabio

The Senate has described as a ruse, the rumour making the rounds in some media outfits that some Senators were planning to impeach the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio.

A statement by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Publicity, Yemi Adaramodu says the attention of the Senate has been drawn to syndicated 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. He alleged that the move is only in the imagination of the compositors.

According to Senator Adaramodu, the 10th Senate, under the leadership of Senator 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. 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.
