National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Adamu, has described the recent move by the National Assembly to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari as a very sorry development.
He stated this during an interview with Trust TV on Tuesday.

Minority lawmakers had during a press briefing held at the National Assembly before proceeding on a two-month annual recess, threatened to commence the process of impeachment at the expiration of six weeks’ ultimatum, if President Buhari failed to address the country’s security challenges.
Responding to the issue, the APC chairman said the move was a sorry development that is “no longer on track.”
He said, “Impeachment was a very sorry development that’s no longer on. With the National Assembly, we expect this hit. It happens everywhere, in every democracy. When you get on it, you keep hitting at it, hitting at it. Even those who initiated it are no longer on that track.”
Also responding on the lingering ASUU strike and what the ruling party is doing to ensure students resume to the classrooms, Adamu said while the party appreciated the concerns of parents and students, he hoped ASUU would “come to reality” and come forward for reconciliation.
“I do know and I appreciate the effort government is making, and it’s my hope that ASUU will come to reality with government. So that we can have a meeting point and bring solace to our children and the parents,” he said.
