The All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus in the Senate has vowed to resist any attempt by the presiding officers of the National Assembly to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Onnoghen is being tried by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over a non-declaration of some assets.
Speaking on behalf of APC senators, former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume told reporters in Abuja that the President did not breach the constitution by his action.
He said, “As members of the APC in the National Assembly, we will put the nation’s interest above any parochial or sectional consideration in dealing with the issue.
“However, if anybody wants to start another trouble in the Senate over the issue, we are ready. We have the number; we have the strength because we constitute the majority.
“It’s just that the Senate leadership wants to play to the gallery, otherwise, I don’t see the same leadership that accused the judiciary of meddling in its affairs now moving against the President for fighting corruption in that arm of government.”
