"The attention of the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to media reports of a laughable impeachment plot by some Senators on President Muhammadu Buhari during Tuesday’s July 12, 2016 closed session of the Senate. This is a huge joke taken too far.

"The Party advises the Senators in question to stop this huge joke and concentrate on their primary constitutional responsibilities of lawmaking and discharging of their legislative mandates to their constituents at the National Assembly. The Party reiterates that the Senators in question (should) not to allow political shenanigans becloud overall national interest.

"The Party will not join issues on the Senate forgery suit and other court cases concerning some members of the 8th Senate because it will be sub judice. We advise the Senators in question to tow the same line and allow judicial processes run it normal and legitimate course."

Meanwhile, Senator Aliyu Wamakko (APC-Sokoto) has dismissed speculations that some clandestine meetings on heinous plans to impeach President Buhari were being held in his house.
