The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to a recent claim by using the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) that the Muhammadu Buhari authorities was planning a forceful exchange of management on the National Assembly.
Imo Ugochinyere, CUPP’s spokesperson, on Tuesday, alleged that the government became set to document a match to get an exparte order directing that 1/3 of the Senators/House reps have to open both chambers of the National Assembly.
An announcement he signed said CUPP became knowledgeable that the plot additionally covered the police inviting the management of the National Assembly before the “debatable ruling” and detaining presiding officers to pave way for the illegal trade
“Some of the security agencies will provide security cover for the coupists while a section of the media has been co-opted to churn out news and justification for such evil plots”, he claimed.
Reacting, APC national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, said such crude practices were rejected templates of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which the CUPP represents.
He wrote, “We consider these new rounds of falsehood by the sponsored “Coalition” as a last-ditch attempt by the outgoing and minority National Assembly leadership of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki; his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara to prevent the reconvening of the National Assembly and continue a minority-rule in an APC-dominated federal legislature.
“We are in a democracy and are governed by laws. A few cannot hold the legislative arm of government to ransom through their selfish political games.
“The National Assembly must be reconvened immediately to attend to crucial and pending legislative business. The majority must be allowed to lead.”
