Former PDP Board of Trustees chairman, Tony Anenih of Edo State has urged lawmakers from his party desist from impeaching the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari.
A former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Tony Anenih, has tasked the Chairman of the party’s National Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi, to dissuade the PDP caucus in the National Assembly from participating in the alleged “ill-advised adventure” of removing President Muhammadu Buhari from office.
In a four-page letter to Mr. Makarfi, dated July 15, 2016, Mr. Anenih said he was persuaded that the time was neither right nor the reasons compelling enough to contemplate the impeachment of the President.
He urged him to personally lead the process of consultation with PDP members in the National Assembly, with a view to getting them to play a patriotic, rather than partisan role, at this time of national economic and social uncertainty.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Senate has severally denied any brewing plot to remove Buhari over growing frustration of a feud between the executive and legislative arms of government.
