Buhari allegedly gives permission to sack Ekweremadu

President Buhari during the meeting with the governors elected under the platform of the APC.

President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly told the governors elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to go ahead to impeach the deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu.

The Punch reports that the shareholders and state governors resolved to do all within their powers to ensure that Ekweremadu is removed.

This was the outcome of the two-hour meeting the governors had with countr’’s president and other stakeholders in the Aso Rock presidential villa on July 26, Tuesday.

A source revealed that the governors sympathized with Buhari for working with legislators that is largely seen as unfriendly.

He said: “Particularly, they observed that in the absence of the president of the senate, the next person is his deputy. They therefore agreed that it was an anomalous situation for a PDP person to continue as the deputy president of the senate.

“They sought and got the president’s permission to intervene in the matter in their own way.”

Governor of the Imo state Rochas Okorocha, had firstly told State House reporters at the end of the meeting that the governors had decided to interfere in the crisis in the National Assembly, without giving details of their interference.

Okorocha, the Chairman of the APC Governors forum, had on July 25, Monday, said Ekweremadu should get ready to vacate his seat as the deputy senate president.

Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has earlier claimed that President Buhari wants Senator Ekweremadu removed because he is an Igbo man.
