PDP govs, Reps talk tough over Saraki, Ekweremadu, Fayose

Saraki and Ekweremadu

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum and the party’s caucus in the House of Representatives yesterday seemed to have woken up to the realities of the threat facing the party and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to call the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to order to desist forthwith in their persecution of Senate President Bukola Saraki , his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu and the Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose.

While the forum chaired by the Governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko asked that Mr. President should immediately intervene to rescue the country from what it described as the current gross abuse of the constitution, the PDP House of Representatives members rose from an emergency meeting vowing to resist any attempt to illegally remove them from office.

The caucus while briefing newsmen in Abuja said the onslaught on the leadership of the upper legislative house, is an attempt to erode the independence of the legislature as enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
