The Senate on Saturday dismissed media reports that some aggrieved senators were plotting to impeach Senate President Godswill Akpabio.
Some media outfits had on Saturday reported that some lawmakers were plotting to impeach Akpabio.
The reports claimed that some senators, whose identities were not revealed, had already met in Saudi Arabia to perfect the move.
But the Senate spokesperson, Yemi Adaramodu, in a statement on Saturday described the report as “a ruse.”
Adaramodu stated, “Our attention has just been drawn to a syndicated satanic verse 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 N100million per legislator. It is apt to note that the 10th Senate, under the leadership of Senator Godswill Akpabio, has carried out its legislative and constitutional duties diligently.
“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.”
In the same vein, Akpabio also dismissed the report, describing it as “complete imaginations and sometimes laced with malice to achieve what senators are yet to comprehend.”
His spokesman, Eseme Eyiboh, said the Senate under Akpabio’s leadership was “stable and unperturbed by what appears to be a syndicated media attack from outside the precincts of the National Assembly.”
