The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress,
APC, has attacked Government Nyesom Wike of engineering
the process of impeaching President Muhammadu Buhari.
The APC described as unwise and unnecessary the recent
plot by some members of the National Assembly to heighten
tension in the country by tabling an impeachment threat on
President Buhari.

The APC said the President was doing his best to rescue the
nation from the dungeon that PDP past Government kept her
and should not be distracted by the National Assembly.
This was contained in a statement by Eze Chukwuemeka
Eze, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Public
Affairs Consultant to the State Chairman of APC, Davies
Ikanya, and made available to JOSHSPOT on Wednesday.
APC said, “The impeachment plot based on President
Buahri’s approval for the withdrawal of $496 million from
the Excess Crude Account for the purchase of 12 Super
Tucano aircraft ordered from the United States aimed at
rescuing the country from its present security crisis is to us
an exercise in futility.
“President Trump affirming this transaction stated, ‘We
recently sold Nigeria 12 Super Tucano aircraft in the first-
ever sale of American military equipment to Nigeria. Nigeria
is a valued partner and a good friend.’

“The National Assembly considering what President Trump
said about our leader and nation should be celebrating this
icon of integrity and the new face of democracy in our
nation than this unwarranted demonstration of shame and
The party said Wike seizes any opportunity to demonstrate
his disdain for both Buhari and the APC-led Government and
has once again used the historical purchase of war Aircraft
to mobilise his attack dogs in the National Assembly
through his lackeys – Kingsley Chinda (House of
Representatives, PDP Rivers, Obio/Akpor Constituency) and
Mathew Urhoghide (Senate, PDP Edo South) to initiate the
impeachment process.

It said the governor already knows very well that the
constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have no
impeachment clause in any of its section but a plot of
distraction to blackmail this administration and disrupt her
efforts to expose and deal with those who have looted our
common patrimony with impunity.
The party further pleads with Wike to, “leave Buhari alone so
that he can concentrate on how to find solutions to how
Wike and his colleagues looted and milked our common
patrimony dry particularly now that he (Wike) has lost
direction on how to govern a complex State like Rivers

The party relies on Section 143 (2) (b) of the 1999
Constitution and further in Section 143 (11) as (a) to state
that, “President Buhari has neither committed any grave
violation or breach of this Constitution”, or “a misconduct of
such nature as amounts in the opinion of the National
Assembly to gross misconduct to warrant his impeachment
or removal from office if not to play into the hands of those
hell-bent of frustrating the corruption fight of this

The party therefore, “admonishes the leadership and
members of the National Assembly to consider the general
peace, welfare of our nation and put aside this impeachment
plot as we need to unite to save our nation from those who
wants to plunge this nation into unwarranted crisis in order
to safeguard their loots.

“The party notes that with the level of corruption instituted
by the PDP administration during its inglorious reign it will be
suicidal to succumb to their evil machinations and plots to
scheme themselves back to power in order to safeguard
their looted funds. God will not permit that.”
