The Presidency has reacted to the National Assembly’s vote of no confidence passed on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the threat to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
The National Assembly at an emergency joint session yesterday had reaffirmed its vote of no confidence on the IGP.
It also threatened to invoke its constitutional powers against Buhari over the “Systematic harassment and humiliation by the Executive of perceived political opponents.”
Reacting to the impeachment threat and vote of no-confidence passed by the lawmaker, Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie lamented that the Senate President, Bukola Saraki was heading the move while some robbers linked to him were “incarcerated.”
Onochie said this while reacting to a Twitter user, DeeOneAyekooto, who wrote: “Godfather of Armed Robbers passed a VOTE of No Confidence on the Inspector General of Police.”
In her reaction, the Presidential aide, tweeted, “Change means we are all equal before the law. It’s, therefore, unfair and extremely sad that only the young Nigerians who were caught for bank robbery, are being incarcerated.
“Their alleged accomplice, is sitting in the chamber of the House of Senate making provoking threats.”
