The Presidency has frowned at what it described as attempts to link President Muhammadu Buhari to the crisis and power play in the Benue State House of Assembly, where a minority few have served an impeachment notice on Governor Samuel Ortom.
A statement signed by the Presidency spokesman, Femi Adesina on Tuesday described the allegation as paranoid and against the clean-up of the country. Adesina noted that President Buhari will never be part of any unconstitutional act, adding that the President will not interfere in a state matter that involved the executive and legislature.
President Buhari has been criticized for the role of security agencies in allowing eight Benue APC lawmakers sit on Monday at the assembly complex to issue the impeachment notice on Ortom who recently left the ruling All Progressives Congress. The APC lawmakers accuse Mr Ortom of corruption, a charge the governor denies.
Adesina however said that President Buhari will always stand by what is “noble and fair” and will reject attempts to drag him into shame.
