Politics Senate Blasts APC for Believing Buhari's Impeachment Rumors

The Nigerian senate has ripped into the All Progressive Congress, APC, for reacting to reports from Sahara Reporters that the Red Chamber is plotting to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.

APC's National Secretary Mai Bala Buni's, reaction to the "falsehood being spread by SaharaReporters will merely give credibility to a news item which members of the public had disregarded, knowing the reputation of the source," a statement by Sen. Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs said.

“We expected the party to at least explore all the options open to it to verify that piece of fabrication which is only the figment of the imagination of the writers and their sponsors," Senator Sabi Abdullahi, said.

“It should be clear to the APC leadership that if there is any truth to that story, it should have been credited to a particular Senator who was at the executive session.

“It is evident from our proceedings of yesterday (Wednesday) that the Senate itself was shocked that such a fabrication which constitute a breach of the privileges of the Senators was published and that was why we mandated our committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions to investigate the source and circumstances leading to the emergence of such a fabrication.
