NASS Siege: Oshiomhole, Daura planned it, Buhari Knew – Kwankwaso Reveals
Former Governor of Kano, Rabiu Kwankwaso has revealed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole gave an ultimatum for the impeachment of Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deputy Ike Ekweremadu.
He said this while condemning Tuesday’s siege at the National Assembly by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS)
No fewer than 30 Senators gathered in the wee hours of Tuesday to finalize the plan.
The meeting was held around 12:30am at a location in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The lawmakers met with sacked DSS Boss, Lawal Daura and Oshiomhole.
As part of the plot, Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan (Yobe North) will be picked as Senate President while Hope Uzodinma (Imo West) will emerge as his deputy.
Speaking to DAILY POST on Wednesday through Comrade Aminu Abdulsalam, his Senior Legislative Aide, Kwankwaso also stated that the presidency cannot claim ignorance of all that happened.
He said: “Whatever thing they are doing now, our believe is that it was carefully planned by the presidency, the party and security agencies
“Unfortunately for them, it went awry somewhere along the line. The DSS and the Police are complicit, they cannot dissociate themselves.
“The party chairman was at the forefront running up and down. He told them (APC senators) that the impeachment had to be carried out within 48 hours no matter what.
“And when it flopped, he was saying they don’t have a hand in it. The level of impunity is alarming.”
On whether they share the believe that President Muhammadu Buhari was aware of the situation, Abdulsalam answered in the affirmative.
“Absolutely. We believe so. The president is fully aware of it,” he said.
