THE Senator representing Bauchi Central, who is also the chairman, Senate Committee on Navy, Senator Isah Hamma Misau, has reacted to the claims by the former Governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu that the National Assembly was planning to impeach President Mohammadu Buhari.
Missau, in a statement on Thursday, said that the claim was untrue adding that the National Assembly had no such plans.
He asked Nigerians to disregard what he called the “empty talk” by the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, describing it as “a mere partisan rhetoric aimed at catching the attention of the crowd” at the defection of Senator Godswill Akpabio in Uyo.
Senator Missau said: “I am surprised that a politician of Tinubu’s calibre will be playing politics with a serious issue like the impeachment of the President of the country just because he wanted to catch the attention of a crowd. Politicians at his level should not be engaging in unnecessary sabre-rattling and empty speculation.
“We, members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Senate, have no plan to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari. There is no need for
that process and we are not contemplating it. Our focus right now is to defend democracy and its institutions, fight for the enthronement of rule of law, independence of the legislature and the judiciary and ensuring good governance.
“If Tinubu has any concrete, reliable and verifiable evidence to the contrary, he should come forward and prove it. A man like him should not be getting carried away by the crowd and making claims that have no basis.
“We, therefore, urge all Nigerians and members of the international community to ignore that claim. There is no basis for anybody to make such a claim. It is a mere fabrication and a stunt pulled to please the partisan crowd to which it was uttered.”
