Who says army cannot take over – Deputy Senate President asks

He said this while reacting to Senator Ahmed Ogembe’s report of how the Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello allegedly organised thugs to disrupt a program he organised.

According to Daily Post, the Deputy Senate President also said that democracy is receding.

He said this while reacting to Senator Ahmed Ogembe’s report of how the Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello allegedly organised thugs to disrupt an empowerment program he organised for his constituents.

Ekweremadu said Governor Bello should retrace his steps, otherwise he will not return to power in 2019.

He said “So today I am advising the governor again, that road he is travelling will not lead him to anywhere. Ultimately, these people he is seeing here will be back here and he will leave office.

“If he doesn’t stop, there is no how he will come back in 2019, never, no he will not. God will show him that he is a God of justice and this is a message to all those people who have caused all kinds of problem in Nigeria at different level. The problem in Nigeria is that our democracy is receding. Who says army cannot take over, let us not joke with our democracy that is the issue.

“The house of a senator was destroyed in Kaduna state, we are talking about Kwankwaso who was stopped from going to his state where he ruled for eight years. In Kaduna, Shehu Sani cannot organise a meeting and we are about a democracy? The international community needs to know this because they helped us install democracy.”

“You will recall that sometime last year when they wanted to recall Dino I advised the governor that they are wasting the resources of that state, that it is mission impossible.

“They took three pages in the newspaper abusing me. Are we still hearing the recall today? Money has been wasted. Money that has been used to pay salaries of people in Kogi state was used to mobilise people to recall senator Dino yet those people have not been paid and Dino is still here,” he added.

Dino Melaye Vs Gov Yahaya Bello

Senator Dino Melaye also accused recently, of planning to poison him using men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

According to Premium Times, the Senator could not leave the court house after his court hearing on alleged false information on Thursday, March 1, 2018, because SARS officials wanted to arrest him.
