UNBELIEVABLE! Fresh Plot To Destabilize Buhari’s Government Uncovered

A plot by lawmakers in the lower chambers to destabilize President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has been uncovered.

Though President Buhari is not the actual target, a member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Johnson Agbonayinma has alleged that some members ‎are collating signatures with the aim of impeaching Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

The Lawmaker representing Egor/Ikpoba-Okha Federal Constituency, Edo State, made this damming allegation while addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.

The lawmaker said, “Some political gladiators and media houses” were ‎sponsoring fake news against Osinbajo.

“The reason is because of the NEMA investigation,” he said.

Agbonayinma,‎ however, failed to name‎ those behind the campaign against the Vice-President, saying they include disgruntled members of the All Progressives Congress.

In November, the House of Representatives Committee on Emergency and Disaster Preparedness indicted Osinbajo in its report, accusing him of illegally approving N5.8 billion North East Intervention Fund which the lawmakers said was mismanaged by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Presenting the committee’s report for consideration during plenary on Thursday, the chairman of the committee, Ali Isa (PDP, Gombe). said as the then acting president, Mr Osinbajo illegally approved the release of N5.8 billion in June 2017 from the Consolidated Revenue Fund Account to NEMA.

The committee chairman while presenting the report said the authorisation for the release of the fund for emergency food intervention in the North East contravened Section 80(4) of the 1999 Constitution as amended.

The section states that, “No money shall be withdrawn from the Consolidated Revenue Fund or any other public fund of the federation, except in the manner prescribed by the National Assembly”.

The lawmakers also stated that the authorisation did not follow due process as taxes and interest accruable to the government were not deducted or remitted to FIRS and no meeting of the Federal Executive Council approved the contracts.

The committee said the funds were credited directly to the individual banks of the companies and NEMA’s bank account, in violation of the approval limit allowed by law.
