Chairman of the Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Peter Nwaboshi, disclosed that any effort to impeach the President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan by the lawmakers will not succeed.
According to Nwaboshi, restructuring is the personal opinion of Lawan and it in no way affect the ability of the lawmakers to impeach him. He spoke in an interview with Vanguard news, where he disclosed certain things about the senate.
He said, “I am not aware of any move within the Senate to remove the Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan. If anyone is thinking of it, it will fail. He never said he is opposed to Restructuring, we listened to what he said and all he said was that in restructuring, it should be holistic and that is what we can make out of his statement. “Stories about plans to sack him, is a figment of the person’s imagination, it will fail, the President of the Senate expressed his personal opinion and this is democracy,
“Some of us are old enough, some of us have been around here to smell anything if there is anything. No one is saying anything about impeachment in the Senate. I can say unequivocally that I have been around and no one is thinking about it. House of Representatives has no powers to impeach the President of the Senate, just as we as Senators cannot impeach the Speaker, House of Representatives. Senators elected the President of the Senate and if anyone is talking about sack, it must be from the point of ignorance”
“That is what the President of the Senate is saying, we did not see it as an attack on the governors and the President of the Senate is experienced enough to know that it will not be fair to attack any region. There is no iota of truth in the impeachment story.”
