Benue: Buhari Will Never Be Part Of Any Unconstitutional Act – Presidency

By - - [ Update Politics ]
The Presidency on Tuesday said there was no truth in the claims that President Muhammadu Buhari has a hand in the move by minority members of the Benue State House of Assembly to remove the state governor , Samuel Ortom. The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr . Femi Adesina , said this in a statement made available to journalists
Adesina said Buhari would never be part of any unconstitutional act . He added that any attempt to link the President with the inglorious past , when minority number of lawmakers removed governors, will not stick.

The statement read , “ Even while attending the ECOWAS/ ECCAS Summit in Togo , strident attempts were being made to drag President Muhammadu Buhari into the unfolding drama between the executive and the legislature in Benue State.“ Statements have been issued by different interest groups , insinuating that the President may have a hand in the development in Benue . “ This is paranoia at its worst , coming from people who have wittingly positioned themselves against the clean - up of the country, and the way we do things . They prefer business as usual.

“ President Buhari will never be part of any unconstitutional act , and any attempt to link him with the inglorious past , when minority number of lawmakers impeached governors, will not stick. It will simply be like water off the duck's back.

“ Those with open minds know this , but those who cavil would rather source everything untoward to the President . It is murky ground in which they are now marooned, as fallout of their resistance to change in the country.
“ When it suits them , they preach separation of powers and true federalism, and in another breath , they call on the President to interfere brazenly in affairs at state level.

“ President Buhari will always stand by all that is noble and fair , and will reject attempts to drag him into infamy .
“ People who stoke fires by deliberate acts of omission or commission , and then summon the President to come and put it out will find that this President will be guided by the Constitution at all times , no matter the attempt to entangle him in unwarranted controversies . ”

Comment from Nigerians:

Who is the head and comnander of the armed forces of Nigeria? Who controls the police? Who appoints the IG of Police? Who appoints commissioners of police? Who does the state commisioner of police report to? Who has the power to draft police officers to locations around the country? Is it not the president and the Inspector General of Police? A group of police officers who ONLY answers to the IG and the president laid siege to Saraki, Ekweremadu and Benue state house of Assembly premises in show of force and impunity and the presidency is here claiming the President is not a party to it? If we should fall inside gutter and believed the presidency's lies, how many police officers have been arrested and tried for the recent incidents on the Senate President and his deputy? How many police police officers have been arrested for laying siege on Benue house of Assembly premises? Of couse none have been arrested because they are carrying out THE ORDERS OF THE PRESIDENT.
A time will come in this shiithole where a battalion of soldiers and police officers will ransack and attack media houses and burn down properties and buhari and his INCOMPETENT IG will claim ignorance. If the president will continue to pretend and claim ignorance to impunity and abuse of power by the police, how can he be trusted to secure lives and properties? And you wonder why hundreds of lives are being wasted daily in the country under this rudderless govt.
Bloody useless govt.

presidency has nothing to do with Benue Issue it if a fight between the past Governor and the Present,both have apparatus of the state working for and against them.

Mr Femi, you even have the time to reply the shameless wailers.
Please concentrate your time on pressing issues Baba is doing in the country and don't listen to all these beer parlor, time wasting news by the children of hate.

This children of hate are something else, When it suits them , they preach separation of powers and true federalism, and in another breath , they call on the President to interfere brazenly in affairs at state level. 

GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT.
