PDP’s call for Buhari’s impeachment witless and mischievous, says Ojudu

The recent call by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Caucus of the House of Representatives for the House to commence impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari is nothing but claptrap, witless and mischievous.

The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, said such a frivolous call was partisan politics taken too far.

He also described as disingenuous the PDP Caucus’ attempt to misrepresent a 2015 tweet by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, saying it completely and deliberately changed its import and meaning.

Osinbajo as the Vice-Presidential candidate of the APC had tweeted at a time when Nigeria was facing one of its darkest periods due to incessant terrorist attacks in some parts of the country, including the FCT.

“In fact at the time the tweet was done on 8th of February 2015, the then Federal Government administration had said it could not guarantee the security in parts of the country for the election to hold and actually elections were postponed because of that stance of the Jonathan Presidency,’’ was the context of a tweet by Prof. Osinbajo in 2015.

Ojudu noted that opposition elements have disingenuously twisted it out of context even insinuating as though it’s a tweet done recently.

“The Vice President never said this in relation to President Buhari.  More importantly, President Buhari has never said that he has lost the capacity to guarantee the security of lives and property of Nigerians. On the contrary, he remains fully committed to the welfare and protection of all Nigerians across the country.

“As the President noted concerning the senseless murder of hardworking farmers in November by terrorists in Zabarmari community in Jere Local Government of Borno State, the Nigerian Armed Forces will continue to be given all the needed support “to take all necessary steps to protect the country’s population and its territory,’’ Ojudu said in a statement given to Persecondnews.

While urging Nigerians to ignore the misrepresentation and misleading narrative by the PDP House of Reps Caucus, the presidential aide said it was an “obvious attempt at mischief and causing disaffection.’’

He restated:“The security and welfare of Nigerians remains one of the cardinal purposes of the Buhari administration and it will continue to take proactive steps to tackle the country’s security challenges.’’
