The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday alleged that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s Presidency was offering lawmakers the sum of $1m each to impeach the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

PDP alleged that one of the heads of the security agencies “is the arrow-head of the Buhari Presidency’s agents charged to coordinate this heinous design.”

The opposition party, however, warned that the planned move will throw “our nation into anarchy and ultimately destroy our hard-earned democracy.”

This allegation was contained in a statement issued by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, following the party’s press conference at its National Secretariat in Abuja on Monday.

The statement reads partly: “Currently, the Buhari Presidency in its corrupt proclivity is seeking to force the reopening of the Senate contrary to Section 12 of the Senate Standing Rules for which the Presidency and the APC are offering lawmakers from both chambers an inducement of the sum of $1 million each with the aim of impeaching Senate President Bukola Saraki and Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu.

“We have been informed that one of the heads of the security agencies is the arrow-head of the Buhari Presidency’s agents charged to coordinate this heinous design, which has the unlimited capacity to throw our nation into anarchy and ultimately destroy our hard-earned democracy.

“The question today is, where is President Buhari’s fight against corruption?

“The APC and Buhari Presidency has turned Nigeria into their cash cow while manipulating our laws and rules to favour their selfish designs.”

The opposition party, however, restated its “commitment to the Nigerians to expose the Buhari administration and fight for the unity, stability, indivisibly and prosperity of our dear nation.

“Nigeria belongs to all of us and nobody, no matter how highly placed has the right to continue to subvert our laws, beguile, intimidate or even attempt to subjugate our citizens at any time,” the statement added.
