45 Parties Rally Support For Saraki Over Impeachment Plot
Fri, 10 Aug 2018

Leaders of 45 political parties yesterday moved to stop the planned impeachment of the president of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki. This is even as they raised the alarm over an alleged plot by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to freeze the account of the Senate and that of its president, Bukola Saraki, to force a leadership change at the Red Chamber. The national chairman of National Unity Party (NUP), Perry Okpara , who spoke on behalf of the parties during a courtesy visit to the Senate President, said, “We have it on good authority that there are moles in the Senate and there are moves to freeze the accounts of the Senate and that of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to effect a forceful leadership change.” In his response, Saraki said he would remain focused and not get distracted by any undemocratic moves from any quarters. Addressing the Senate president, Okpara further revealed that there was a new plot to overthrow the leadership of the National Assembly, adding that the move was to cripple the parliament. “We wish to alert Nigerians of a new plot by the same people, whose first shameful attempt to unlawfully overthrow the leadership of the National Assembly failed; an attempt, which brought Nigeria to bad international limelight. “We have it on good authority that a fresh plot is being hatched to make another attempt to cripple the parliament in the guise of impeachment, even when they know that there is no constitutional majority to achieve such sinister move. “We wish to state that we, the chairmen and leaders of political parties, will not support or stand by to watch any unconstitutional impeachment of the leadership of the National Assembly,” he avowed. Okpara, who did not mention the name of the agency plotting to freeze the accounts of Saraki and that of the Senate, said that the political parties would not sit by and watch the country slide into anarchy. “Nigeria is gradually turning into a failed state and all the institutions of state have been compromised and desecrated. This is the time to rise in defence of democratic values and nationhood,” he added. Saraki, in his response, thanked the chairmen of political parties for their support for democracy. He assured them that he would not allow himself to be distracted by the antics of law breakers. According to him, the undemocratic forces are supposed to have learnt their lesson from the failure of their illegal move for leadership change in the Senate on Tuesday. The political parties present were United Democratic Party (UDP), Rebuild Nigeria Party (RNP), People for Democratic Change (PDC), Peoples Party of Nigeria (PPN), Progressives Peoples Party (PPP), Grassroots Development Party of Nigeria (GDPN), Alliance for Democracy (AD), Young Democratic Party (YDP), Action Peoples Party (APP), National Interest Party (NIS), National Conscience Party (NCP), KOWA Party and Action Alliance (AA), among others.
