Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, has said the impeachment threat against Governor Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa State by the state House of Assembly was a well-rehearsed plot by Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to scuttle the democratic choice of the people of the state.
CPC’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Rotimi Fashakin, in a statement yesterday, expressed concern that a national security issue carried over from the previous PDP administrations was being hung on the incumbent.
He said: “This appears to be a well-rehearsed plot, orchestrated by PDP high command, in furtherance of the political gerrymandering and destabilisation agenda of the ruling party.”
The statement followed the recent threat by the PDP-dominated Nasarawa House of Assembly to impeach the governor on account of the recurring crisis in some parts of the state.
He said: “The state legislators, urged on by their national leaders, are committed to bringing the state into unimaginable instability with their legislative impropriety.
“We are forced to react, through this statement, to the admonition of well-meaning individuals and institutions on the very precipitous path the state legislators have chosen to tread.
