The Federal House of Representatives at the weekend, in Bauchi State, cleared the air on the alleged plot to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari as it said it had no evidence of impeachable offences against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking through the House Chief Whip, Alhaji Alhassan Doguwa, who represents All Progressives Congress, APC, Doguwa/Tudun Wada Constituency in Kano State, it insisted that no such issue was contemplated in the House of Representatives.
While addressing newsmen, Doguwa said: “As far as I am concerned, I am a member of House of Representatives and a principal officer of the House; the National Assembly is a twin institution; we have the House and we have the Senate. If there is any insinuation or speculation about the impeachment of Mr President in any chamber rather than the House of Representatives, that, I don’t know.
“But I want to be very straight forward to you that we don’t have such a consideration before us. That matter is not even being contemplated; it was not even at any point in time thought of. After all, we do not have any evidence of impeachable offence with which to use against Mr President.
He described as unfounded, speculations on purported impeachment plans, adding that “it is mere speculation on the street and should be left at that level.”
