Senate speaks on impeaching akpabio as fresh details emerge.

The chairman, Senate committee on labour employment and productivity and vice chairman, committee on federal character, Senator Diket Plang, has dispelled the insinuation that there was a plot to impeach the Senate president, Godswill Akpabio.

As reported by The Nigerian Tribune, Plang said there was no one thinking along that line. He pointed out that there were variables for his election as the Senate president.

The lawmaker added that he was not just elected without special considerations that reflect the yearning and peculiarities of Nigerians.

Senator Plang told newsmen in Jos, Plateau state capital, that every political position at the national level was carried out to reflect the geopolitical zones in the country.

Presidency won’t allow Akpabio’s removal He further explained that no part of the country was short-changed in the scheme of things, adding that the belief in certain quarters that the northern senators were not at home with the Senate president was wrong and misleading

He explained why President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s led government would not allow Akpabio to be impeached.

Plang stated: “When there are issues, you raise them for a rethink and future correction. Nobody will remove the Senate President; he is stable. We elected him, and there are variables for that election. The North West has the deputy Senate President, the North East has the Vice President, the North Central has the SGF, and the South has the Senate President.

“These balances are there for stability; if everybody is involved, there will be trust, and people will work harder. I just want to assure you that the 10th Senate is a people’s senate and a focus senate. The Senate is willing to work with the executive for the purpose of moving the nation forward.

“Luckily, we have executives who know the workings of legislators; the President was a former senator, and his wife was a former senator, a vibrant one, for that matter. The Vice President was a senator, and the Chief of Staff was also a former Speaker of the House of Representatives.

“The SGF was also a Senator, so when we are shouting, they should know what we mean. So, there should be synergy and understanding.”

Meanwhile, the call for Akpabio’s sack was further heightened in March 2024 following the suspension of the lawmaker representing Bauchi Central, Senator Abdul Ningi, over the 2024 budget padding allegation.
