Nigeria: CPC Condemns Impeachment Plot Against Al Makura

The Congress for Progressive Change has described the political crisis in Nasarawa state as a plot orchestrated by the Peoples Democratic party to destabilise the state.

The recent violent crisis in Agyaragu area of the state had been given as the reason for the impeachment plot against the Governor, who had earlier announced at a state-wide broadcast that he was saddened that the state is being made to assume the status of a theatre of communal violence.

National Publicity Secretary of the party Rotimi Fashakin in a press statement said the State Legislators, urged on by their National Leaders, are committed to bringing the state into unimaginable instability with their legislative impropriety.

"As a Party, we are forced to react, through this statement, to the admonition of well-meaning individuals and institutions on the very precipitous path the state Legislators have chosen to tread.

"There was never any impeachment threat on the previous PDP governors that were helmsmen during the previous dispensations of crisis in the State. What is more, has Nigeria ever been enveloped under the cloud of insecurity as severe as with this PDP-led Federal Government? Yet the President has never been threatened with impeachment because of the intractable insecurity within the Nation-space.

But because of the massive majority of the PDP in the Nasarawa House of Assembly, the Legislators have chosen to thread the path of reckless partisanship and legislative indiscretion to resolve a problem of the State."

Fashakin said now was the time for greater collaborative efforts between the Executive and the Legislature for the greater good of the people of Nasarawa State.
