Senate’s Alleged Impeachment Plot: Tony Anenih Speaks
The ex-chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Tony Anenih, has warned members of the party in the National Assembly against the alleged impeachment plot being planned against President Muhammadu Buhari.
He stated this in a four-page letter to the Chairman of the party’s National Caretaker Committee, Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, which was dated July 15, 2016 and made available to journalists in Abuja on Wednesday.
Anenih said he was persuaded that the time was neither right nor the reasons compelling enough to contemplate the impeachment of the President.
The letter was titled, “The PDP Caucus in the National Assembly and the threat to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.”
He asked Makarfi to personally lead the process of consultation with PDP members in the National Assembly.
He urged him to lead with view to getting them to “play a patriotic, rather than partisan role at this time of national economic and social uncertainty.”
In a similar development, President Buhari has reportedly met with Senator David Mark following the alleged impeachment plot.
