CUPP Accuses Police, Presidency Of Plotting Akwa Ibom House Crisis



The presidency acting in concert with the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and Senator Godwill Akpabio and the police plotted the Tuesday morning failed attempt to initiate impeachment proceedings against Governor Udom Emmaneul of Akwa Ibom the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has said.

The CUPP said the conspiracy was what instigated the mayhem at the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly on Tuesday.

CUPP spokesperson, Imo Ugochinyere,  said the failed move by the five former lawmakers to impeach the governor was backed by the police.

He said: “We heard on good authority that these hoodlums imported by these sponsored five lawmakers forced their way into the legislative house at the early hours of today with the aid of a contingent of policemen drafted by the Inspector of General of Police (IGP) Mr Ibrahim Idris, the National chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole to destabilize the state Assembly .

“The suspended five state Assembly members with the support of the police again force their way into the chambers to first sack the speaker, elect a new one and thereafter constitute a kangaroo committee to commence impeachment proceedings against the state governor.

“We the opposition parties condemn in strong terms this attempted rape on our democracy by a few misguided elements in the state and their paymasters.

“This desperation by president Mohammadu Buhari and his APC to take over Akwa Ibom state even ahead of 2019 general election is capable of leading to a repeat of the unfortunate political drama that truncated our democracy in 1983.

“We will not seat down therefore and allow Akpabio and his APC sponsored agents to destabilize Akwa Ibom state Assembly and by extension create another political recipe for a possible collapse of our democracy.

“We call on the people of the state to be ever vigilant and never allow senator Akpabio, and his APC cohorts to remove the speaker or governor in an undemocratic manner.”
