Members of the Northern Caucus in the House of Representatives and other members have dismissed the report that there was a plan to impeach the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila.

Chairman of Caucus, Musa Sarkin Adar (APC Sokoto) disclosed this at a press briefing on Tuesday.

The press briefing came after what transpired at the Chambers over the publication by an online medium alleging that members of the Northern Caucus want to move for the Speaker’s impeachment if he did not support the Water Resources Bill.

Speaking at the briefing, he reiterated that, the House is united and members work devoid of sentiments for the progress of the nation.

According to him, Northern lawmakers are solidly behind Gbajabiamila as shown during his campaign and election as the Speaker and voted against the person from the north who challenged him at the time.

On his part, the House Leader, Alhassan Ado Doguwa (APC Kano) said, it was unfortunate that peddlers of fake news are creating an environment of chaos and division at a time when the country needs unity.

Speaking, the House Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu (PDP Delta) said, Nigerians should work for the unity and security of the country.

According to him, the media would do better for the country if it desists from manufacturing none existing situations that will raise tensions in the country.

Speaking, the Chairman, House Committee on Water Resources, Sada Soli Jibia (APC Katsina) said, it was unfortunate that, some people including journalists are reporting the said Bill without an informed view.

According to him, many Nigerians raising their voices against the Bill and misleading others have not read and understood its content to make an informed comment or analysis.
