“Senators planning to impeach Buhari” – Bola Tinubu alleges
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, Bola Tinubu, yesterday alleged that some Senators were planning to impeach President Buhari. Tinubu made the allegation when he spoke at the Ikot Ekpene township stadium in Akwa Ibom where the formal defection of the immediate past Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, took place.
In his speech, Tinubu warned those that are planning the impeachment to drop the idea because it is not ”possible for a lizard to fight with an antelope”
The APC National leader took a swipe at PDP, who according to him, is resisting the change the Buhari-led government is implementing.
“We believe in government of the people, for the people and by the people; but the conservatives believe in government of sharing. We say Nigerian money belongs to Nigerians. We say Nigerians must be given development. We believe in investing in the people. But they believe in sharing and looting the money. Today, we are aspiring in our vision, but the Peoples Democratic Party has no vision. They believe in sharing and looting the treasury. Today, Buhari says we must change; we must account for Nigeria’s money, but they are resisting” he said
He expressed happiness that Akwa Ibom had embraced the change of Buhari.
“With the present posture of the state, it “shall sweep the evil out with the broom,’’ Tinubu said.
Quoting what appears to be a passage from the Bible’s Book of Isaiah Chapter 14 verse 23, Tinubu, a Muslim, said, “The people in the city shall be swept away with brooms.’’
The Bible verse actually reads, “I will make Babylon a desolate place of owls, filled with swamps and marshes. I will sweep the land with the broom of destruction. I, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!” (New Living Translation)
