TINUBU TO SENATORS: You can’t impeach Buhari, it’s ‘not possible for a lizard to wrestle an antelope’
By Editor

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has raised the allegation that some senators are plotting to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.

He cautioned the senators, saying it is “not possible for a lizard to wrestle an antelope.”

Tinubu spoke Wednesday at an APC rally in Akwa Ibom organised to welcome Godswill Akpabio, former governor of the state, into the party.

He described Nigeria’s political battle ahead of the 2019 general elections as “a war between progressives and the conservatives”.

“We believe in government of the people, for the people and by the people but the conservatives believe in government of sharing,” he said.

“We say Nigerian money belongs to Nigerians. We say Nigerians must be given development. We believe in investing in the people.

“But they believe in sharing and looting the money. Today we are aspiring in our vision, but the PDP has no vision. They believe in sharing and looting the treasury.’’

He also accused the PDP of failing Nigerians during its 16-year reign at the centre.

“Today, Buhari says we must change; we must account for Nigeria’s money but they are resisting,” he said.

Tinubu also expressed happiness that Akwa Ibom “has embraced the change agenda” of the current administration.

He said, “With the present posture of the state, the APC shall sweep the evil out with the broom. The people in the city shall be swept away with brooms.”
