Buhari after Senate president

The Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has allegedly ordered for the immediate arrest of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu. Addressing a Press Conference, on Sunday, in Abuja, the Spokesman of the CUPP and National Chairman of the Action Peoples Party, APP, Chief Ikenga Ugochinyere, said that the Senate President and his Deputy, who are both of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have been marked for arrest, on Monday night, just ahead of Tuesday’s emergency plenary. He revealed that Senators Ahmed Lawan, Godswill Akpabio, and Hope Uzodinma, according to the plan, will be announced “Factional” Senate President, Deputy Senate President, and Senate Leader, respectively. He added that Gbajabiamila and Abdulminim Jibrin, are set for the Offices of “Factional” Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, while Ali Ndume, Omo-Agege, Dr. George Akume, Abdullahi Adamuand, others, are allegedly part of the move. He stated that Saraki, Ekweremadu, Dogara, Ben Bruce, Dino Melaye, and others, would be stopped from assessing the National Assembly, leading to what he termed a collapse of constitutional democracy in the country. “The CUPP is once again raising an alarm, having received incontrovertible facts, over a fresh plot that has been hatched and which has received the go-ahead nod of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government, for a violent, undemocratic, unlawful, illegal, and demonic takeover of the Leadership of both Chambers of the National Assembly, on Tuesday, 29th January, 2019. “The APC-led Federal Government is of the firm belief, that Tuesday is their best and last chance to effect the changes, as their control of the Judiciary will be put to use, to ensure there is no reversal of justice for the present occupants. “The Senate will reconvene on Tuesday, to discuss the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, by President Muhammadu Buhari. “The APC is ready to do whatever it takes to destroy the very fulcrum of our constitutional democracy, on Tuesday, and have vowed, it is tomorrow (today) or never. “The Judicial coup which they believed was supposed to be more difficult, went very easily beyond their imagination; hence, the need to complete the takeover of the National Assembly immediately, so that the distraction of the election campaigns will be put to use”, the CUPP claimed. Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has alleged that there are moves by “certain agents” to bribe senators of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to protect President Muhammadu Buhari from imminent parliamentary sanctions for constitutional breaches. In a statement, Kola Ologbondiyan, spokesman of PDP, said in a move against possible sanction on his handling of the Walter Onnoghen case, Buhari has summoned a “clandestine meeting on Monday ahead of senate resumption”. The party alleged that the APC senators have been bribed with huge sums of money to disrupt the session when the matter is raised. “Intelligence available to the PDP shows that this is the reason the jittery Presidency summoned all APC senators to the presidential villa to a clandestine meeting on Monday night, ahead of the senate’s resumption on Tuesday,” the statement read. “The PDP has been informed of how the Buhari Presidency has been unsettled following national and international outcry over his constitutional breaches, particularly the assault on the judiciary in his attempt to forcefully remove the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen and impose a pliable CJN to do his bidding. “President Buhari is not only apprehensive that the senate might sanction him for violating the constitution and usurping its statutory duties regarding the handling of issues related to a CJN, the parliament might also open an inquest into how President Buhari, who parades as Mr. Integrity, allegedly procured an order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) upon which he announced the illegal suspension of the CJN. “There are reports that the said order is suspicious and subject to investigation, being not argued or issued in the open court; following which a distressed Buhari Presidency now seeks to corrupt and undermine the Senate. The PDP said it raised the alarm to protect Nigeria’s democracy as against being partisan.
