There was palpable tension early Wednesday morning at the National Assembly as people were seen in groups discussing a planned likelihood of forcefully impeaching the House Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara.
Meanwhile, the gathering of the House members suddenly became the cynosure of everyone around the White House lobby.
Attempts to speak with Hon. Benjamin Ikani Okolo representing Dekina/Bassa federal constituency, one of those seen at the lobby, did not yield result as he declined to comment.
However, a principal staff of the Sergeant-at-Arms, who spoke with newsmen under anonymity, posited that the plot might have been prompted by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s defection yesterday, adding that it was a signal of the House Speaker’s defection.
Speaking on the possibility of some elements taking action against the House Speaker while lawmakers are on recess, he explained that “anything was possible”, adding that they, the security outfit, was ready for any eventuality.
Members of the House of Representatives loyal to President Buhari believe that the Speaker, who was yet to make his defection known, was no longer with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and might tow the line of the Senate President any moment from now.
