I Can Impeach Buhari, Reformed APC Has Majority In NASS – Buba Galadima

Published

on

The factional national chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, otherwise known as Reformed All Progressives Congress, rAPC, Buba Galadima on Friday said their group has majority in the National Assembly.

Mr Galadima told journalists that as chairman of the group, he could give directive to the majority members of the National Assembly to begin process for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“I want to say that today, as I sit here, if I give a directive to our members in the National Assembly to impeach for constitutional infractions, it would be carried out because we have that majority,” he said.

Mr Galadima said contrary to a statement made by the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, that the people behind the rAPC were inconsequential, it was those opposed to them that lacked integrity and honesty.

“On that side, there is no man of integrity and honesty as Buba Galadima. Those of us that had sacrificed our sweat and blood cannot sit idly and watch these values destroyed. This is the beginning of what is called crisis in the party.

“We believe that all the values and visions of APC have been thrown to the dustbin.

“Nigerians from all works of life have shown solidarity with us. For those who said that they are not losing sleep, why are they scampering to the National Assembly to beg cap in hand?”

‘He’s Not Going Anywhere’ — Oshiomhole Insists Ortom Won’t Join ‘People Deceiving People’ (PDP)

Published

on

Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has insisted that the ruling party will not let Samuel Ortom, Governor of Benue State, out of its sight.

In the middle of a power tussle with George Akume, a serving senator and former Governor of Benue, Ortom announced on Monday that he had been red-carded from the APC and was standing outside the pitch ‘like a free man” waiting to join another club.

On Wednesday, he met some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders, ahead of an anticipated defection to the erstwhile ruling party.

However, after a closed-door meeting with Ortom at the party secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, Oshiomole said that the APC does not have a red card, and therefore cannot give what it doesn’t have.

“Senator Akume is a very respected leader of the party; he is former Governor, a current senator, and he will recognize the need for peace and we have what it takes to make peace,” Oshiomhole told journalists after the meeting.

“In Benue, we are going for a win/win solution. Governor Ortom is not going anywhere. He is a very prominent member of our party and we appreciate his leadership in Benue and we will do everything possible to help those who have issues to have these issues resolved. The only thing will we not accept is anybody leaving the house we have toiled to build together.

“APC does not even have a red card, so we can’t give what we don’t have and we recognize that there could be legitimate legal issues like agreement, disagreement and contestation, and these we are familiar with. They are the evidence that we are a democratic party. When leaders have disagreements, it is to help them and find a common ground and issues in Benue are not so fundamental that they cannot be resolved. We are very confident that we will resolve them.

“For the PDP hovering round, they must know that only people without honor will vomit in the morning and in the afternoon they convert it to lunch. People like Ortom who have honour cannot leave PDP three and half ago with his eyes open and then two, three years later there are some tension in his master bedroom and he is thinking of returning to ‘People Deceiving People’.

“I mean, that cannot be an option. He is a man of honor, he knows that once you make one step forward you take the second step to consolidate the first step and that is the way to go.”
