The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has refuted media reports suggesting a coordinated effort by disgruntled Senators to impeach him.
Several national newspapers have published stories claiming that certain lawmakers, who were disappointed in the allocation of Senate Committees, are behind this alleged plot.
The reports also accuse two former governors from the North West of spearheading the plan to remove Senator Akpabio from his position as Senate President once the legislators return from their annual break.
In response, through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Honourable Eseme Eyiboh, the Senate President expressed his lack of concern and suggested that these reports may be part of a larger media attack originating from outside the National Assembly. He reiterated his belief that these reports are mere fantasies tinged with ill intent. Akpabio emphasized that the Senate has moved forward after the leadership contest and criticized the attempt to involve Senators who initially didn’t support the current leadership in a non-existent conspiracy as unfair to those Senators.
“Senators are presently concluding their holidays in their constituencies and other places they have chosen to spend their time after the rigours of the inauguration and ministerial screening.
“All senators are also refreshing themselves ahead of resumption, and suggestions that they are presently engaged in other subversive plots against the institution is rather uncharitable. It is especially uncharitable for those Senators who initially did not support the emergence of the leadership but who have all unanimously endorsed the Senator Akpabio-led leadership.
” Continuing to link these Senators with one conspiracy or the other with barely disguised innuendo is rather unkind. We call on the Media not to give in to the conspiratorial tales and to please not give damage to the reputations that they have built over time,” he concluded.
