Several Senators Advocate for Impeachment of Akpabio before July- Senate Majority Leader, Opeyemi Bamidele


Opeyemi Bamidele, the Senate Majority Leader, claims that certain senators are plotting to impeach the current Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, before July 2024. Bamidele stated this while addressing the allegation made by Abdul Ningi, senator representing Bauchi central, that the 2024 budget was padded by N3 trillion, equating Ningi’s claim to a “civilian coup” againt Akpabio.

Bamidele further asserted that the Bauchi senator aimed to employ the Northern Senators Forum (NSF) as a means to carry out the “civilian coup.” Additionally, he emphasized that the Senate remained notably tranquil during the tenure of Senate President hailing from the northern region.

“I stand to say that, what my big brother, distinguished senator Abdul Ningi, who i respect so well, planned to do was tantamount to a civilian coup, which has failed. In doing this, he wanted to use the platform of the northern senator’s form. God bless all those who have disassociated themselves from it. A few people who felt they will not give you (Akpabio) more than one year as chair of the senate, want to do everything possible before July 13 to remove you. That is why it is always about Akpabio. Never about the Senate, House of Representatives, and DG budget office. All of us passed this budget. Never about the president who signed the budget, it is always about Akpabio.” He said
