Senators Move To Impeach Godswill Akpabio As Senate President, See Why

Senators have perfected a move to impeach Godswill Akpabio as Senate President.

TheTimes reports that some aggrieved senators have started making moves to impeach the Senate president, Senator Godswill Akpabio, when the Senate reconvenes on September 26, 2023.

According to findings, two prominent senators from the North West and other senators across the national assembly are already meeting and mapping out plans to carry out the daring move.

According to sources who revealed these, the senators believe that the senate president is a rubber stamp for the presidency and may not be able to carry out his duty effectively.

TheTimes Nigeria gathered that the senators are also planning to not only impeach Godswill Akpabio as Senate President but to make the leadership of the Senate not favorable to the presidency thereby, creating an uncomfortable situation for the president.

Part of the plans, our investigations showed, include floating a new political party, which will be spearheaded by a former governor from the North West, who is a high-ranking member of the Senate and will likely be contesting for presidency under the new party.

The idea of the new party is to unsettle the current political parties, especially the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC), and serve as an alternative for Nigerians come 2027.

These senators who are already meeting, had recently met in Kwara State, where the idea of the political party was nurtured and agreed upon.

The Leadership Newspaper quoted sources to have said that the Nigerian Senators are currently meeting in Saudi Arabia where they are perfecting plans to ensure that the Senate President is impeached when the national assembly reconvenes.

Part of their propaganda is to use the current economic situation in the country and the situations in the Niger Republic to garner the support of other senators against the Senate President thereby pushing for his impeachment for not tackling the presidency on these issues.
