Eseme Eyiboh, the Special Adviser on Media to the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio refuted reports in circulation alleging some senators were working to impeach Akpabio, adding that the alleged plot is “complete imagination”.
Eyiboh said, “Senators are presently concluding their holidays in their constituencies and other places they have chosen to spend their time after the rigors of the inauguration and ministerial screening and other constructive engagements.
“All senators are also refreshing themselves ahead of the resumption, therefore, any suggestions that they are presently engaged in other subversive plots against the institution is rather uncharitable.
“It is mostly uncharitable for those senators who initially did not support the emergence of the leadership but who have all unanimously endorsed the Senator Akpabio-led leadership.
“Continuing to link these senators with needless conspiracy with barely disguised innuendo is rather unkind.”
Media reports claimed 2 prominent senators from the North West, who are former governors and other senators have met in Saudi Arabia and Ilorin, Kwara State to conclude plans on unseating Akpabio as the President of the 10th Senate when the Senate reconvenes on September 26, 2023.
The reports further claimed that Akpabio was “a rubber stamp for the presidency”, therefore making him unable to carry out his legislative duties effectively.
