The senator representing Sokoto North District on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, has denied reports that he hosted senators to nocturnal meetings at his Abuja residence where an alleged plot to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari was hatched.
An online news medium had reported that Tuesday’s executive session of the Senate, where an impeachment threat against the president was made, was part of the outcome of the meeting at Wamakko’s house.
But the former Sokoto State governor, in a statement issued on Wednesday, explained that he only hosted his colleagues once, adding that the meeting was convened to address the impasse between the executive and the legislature.
The statement read: “My attention was drawn to a false and malicious story published by an online newspaper, that series of meetings were held in my residence to strategize on the impeachment proceedings of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“To set the records straight, a meeting was only held in my residence towards finding amicable solution to the frosty relationship between the Executive and Legislature.
“We have observed the growing disharmony between the two arms, and we resolved that finding amicable solution to the impasse will move the nation forward and give the president focus to pursue his change agenda”.
