Nigerian Senate has on Thursday raised concerns over underground plots to impeach the Senate president, Abubakar Bukola Saraki and destabilize the leadership of the upper chamber by some disaffected members.
Senator Obinna Ogba representing Ebonyi north under order 43 alerted the Senate of surreptitious moves to cause crisis in the Senate.
He said against the backdrop of earlier rumour, it was now reported to be a verifiable fact as whooping sums of money was alleged to have started exchanging hands among some senators, civil society organisations and market women.
Ogba specifically accused senator Abdullahi Adamu representing Nasarawa West of being the mastermind and arrowhead of the ongoing plot.
He said, ‘I have evidence to prove what I’m saying as there were telephone discussions between Adamu and other people. It is a serious issue’.
‘We must stand up to look into this urgent matter and not to dismiss it with a wave of hand.”
The lawmaker in support of his report laid a documentary evidence before the hallowed chamber for a speedy consideration and action.
Recall that Senator Isa Misau had earleir raised the alarm over a similar plot to remove the Senate President. He had said that during the Senate’s New year holiday, cabals in the presidency became suspicious that the Senate President may defect to PDP, so they made up their minds to initiate impeachment moves against him.
