The All Progressive Congress (APC) has condemned opposition Senators in the upper house of the Nigerian legislature for trying to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari from office.
Aminu Ahmed Gumel, the chairman of the APC in Jigawa State, made this disclosure in response to threats to impeach President Buhari by PDP lawmakers.
On Wednesday July 27th, Senators from the opposition gave President Muhammadu Buhari a six-week ultimatum to solve the nation’s security challenges, hence his removal from office.
Gumel characterized the action as harmful and pernicious to Nigeria’s democracy.
He said, “what is needed now from Senators and all Nigerians are to unite and join hands together to fight and push out those miscreants, terrorists, and their sponsors who unleashed their terror in the country.
“Its a shame for the opposition Senators who walked out from the Senate Chamber instead of them to stay and give their contribution on the best way for tackling the insecurity situation of the country.
“This is a clear testimony that their parties lack people’s confidence and acceptability, so they are afraid of the 2023 general election, therefore, they now thought to embark on empty threat and smearing campaign against President Buhari at the detriment of the country’s democratic survival.”
The Chairman stated that President Buhari and the APC are dedicated to preserving harmony and peace in the nation.
He then counseled Nigerians to keep praying for the APC administration to succeed in resolving the ongoing issues.
