Melaye attacks Senator Tinubu
Misau: The Executive should toe the path of dialogue or else the Senate will go for the jugular
Unity Forum member: What is the meaning of the jugular? Tell us; we don’t know what you mean
Misau: Impeachment, of course
Some senators are threatening to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari. They are angry that Saraki and Ekweremadu have been put on trial for alleged forgery of the Senate Standing Rules 2015 (as amended), which they described as an “internal affair” of the Upper Chamber.
They yesterday demanded the suspension of the senators who went to court on the alleged forgery of the Rules, having been fingered as those behind the travails of Saraki and Ekweremadu. They protested against the refusal of the Attorney-General of the Federation, Mallam Abubakar Malami (SAN), to appear before the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters on June 30.
The aggrieved senators asked the chamber to issue a warrant of arrest against the AGF to compel him to appear before the Senate. They asked the Executive to choose between “dialogue and the jugular” which was later interpreted by a senator to mean “impeachment”.
But members of the Unity Forum, who are opposed to Saraki’s and Ekweremadu’s leadership of the Senate, asked their colleagues to explore dialogue instead of nursing an impeachment move against the President. They said with the intervention of the Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Sen. Ita Enang, it would be better to extend another invitation to Malami.
