Don’t Try to Impeach Buhari – Anenih Warns PDP Lawmakers
Former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Tony Anenih, has warned members of the party in the National Assembly not to contemplate removing President Muhammadu Buhari from office.
He also asked the Chairman of the party’s National Caretaker Committee, Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, to dissuade the PDP caucus in the Assembly from participating in what he described as an “ill-advised adventure.”
He stated this in a four-page letter to Makarfi, which was dated July 15, 2016.
In the letter, which was made available to journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, Anenih said he was persuaded that the time was neither right nor the reasons compelling enough to contemplate the impeachment of the President.
He asked Makarfi to personally lead the process of consultation with PDP members in the National Assembly, with a view to getting them to “play a patriotic, rather than partisan role at this time of national economic and social uncertainty.”
The letter was titled, “The PDP Caucus in the National Assembly and the threat to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.”
It reads in part, “I am constrained to write this letter by my love for our great country and my long years of involvement in the pursuit of peace, co-existence and national development.
