The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has mocked Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmakers threatening to impeach the President, Muhammadu Buhari.
HausaToday recall that the minority lawmakers in the Senate had in July given Buhari six weeks to address the general insecurity in the country or risk impeachment.
Similarly, the PDP caucus in the House of Representatives also joined in the six-week ultimatum after a meeting of the party’s National Assembly caucus.
Reacting to this, Wike during the project commissioning in Rivers State on Friday, mocked the decision of the lawmakers.
According to the governor, the lawmakers lack the power to impeach the president, stating that they do not have the balls for such an act.
I Don’t Know Anything About So-Called Suit
Meanwhile, Wike has denied filing a suit seeking the immediate removal of Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the PDP in next year’s general election.
The governor distanced himself from the suit hours after it was reported that the PDP Chieftain filed a suit challenging the outcome of the opposition party’s primary election.
Speaking in a chat with Track News Nigeria, Wike noted that he had no idea whatsoever about the purported suit nor know the lawyers who filed the suit at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Wike further described the suit as the handiwork of mischief makers who merely want to use him to score cheap political points.
He stated emphatically: “I don’t know anything about the so-called suit. I did not ask anyone to file any suit for me “I don’t know the lawyers”. Continuing, he said, “am I a kid to be filing a suit at this time. I had 14 days after the primary within which to have filed any suit. I didn’t do that then, is it two months after primary I will file a suit?”
