Missing Budget: APC reacts to call for Buhari’s impeachment

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to the call by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The PDP attacked the president Thursday after the senate accused the presidency of altering the 2016 budget.

Senate president, Bukola Saraki, said a copy of the budget received from the president was different from what his aide, Ita Enang, distributed to its members.

Lawmakers had earlier told PREMIUM TIMES that the original document was missing.

In a statement Thursday, PDP asked the National Assembly to impeach the president, and called for the resignation of the finance minister, Kemi Adeosun, and budget and national planning minister, Udo Udoma.

The party also demanded the resignation of the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.

APC dismissed the call as “comical”.

“It is confusing and worrisome that the PDP calls for an investigation into the budget issue and at the same time calls for the removal and resignation of the aforementioned,” the party said in a statement by its national secretary, Mala Buni.

“In both content and context, PDP’s statement constitute a distraction to the National Assembly.”

The party said it was confident that the 8th National Assembly would not be distracted by the PDP in “its new desperate plot to divert attention from the ongoing investigation into mind-boggling cases of corruption perpetuated under its defunct 16-year rule”.

  • SB

    Nigerians can not be deceived by pdp’s latest device or means to divert attention from the ongoing war against corruption that indicts their members.

    • SpeakOut

      I said it earlier, the whole of pdp members should be jailed, they’re all miscreant, most especially those executive members

  • Idy

    Pdp is a big joke.

  • thewatcher

    The confusion party known as PDP is trying to engulf Nigerians in it’s stupidity

  • NaijaCaesar

    Instead of PDP to join concerned citizens in demanding the NASS to stop playing games

    • G1gbolahan

      Their funeral is being planned. PDP has shown it cannot recover anymore. Those who can rebrand the party have left it behind.

    • dpfrank

      PDP is behind the missing budget

  • katalyst

    In all honesty what corruption is more than stealing the budget and amending it from the back door? What else constitutes an impeachable offence? All the time APC will play d anti corruption card as if their campaign fund was a church tithe. Everyone knows that the country is worse than it was 9months ago. And what corruption case do we have at hand? Only #Dasukigate. Nigerias problem is beyond $2.1billion. Only Tinubu has that money and more form stolen funds.

    • Fireman

      Stop shooting bullets into the air. We need to hold the people responsible. And the people responsible for this mess and debacle are the National Assembly

      • katalyst

        Are u separating Ita Enang the culprit in #themissingbudget saga from the presidency?

        • SpeakOut

          Are you saying pmb, Governor of CBN, Minister of Finance and udo udoma, are the one that took the 2016 budget, boss we’re not fools, wkae up please

    • SpeakOut

      Boss you comment is like someone that lack knowledge, please the budget is missing, help us beg your larcenies pdpigs to fetch it out

      • katalyst

        So Saraki and Ita enang are PDP now? Well I am not pdp either but ur hero Buhari wld have withdrawn his budget of mistake officially and made his adjustment rather than fighting corruption and arranging with Ita enang to steal a budget.

        • SpeakOut

          Make use of your precious time, it very important

        • dpfrank

          The body language of the PDP tells it all that they arranged to steal the budget so as to turn around and use it to impeach Mr President, but they have failed

    • dpfrank

      PDP stole the budget to rubiish Mr President, we can see through your tricks

    • Julius

      Im surprised it took you that long to mention Tinubu. You forgot Fashola, Diya, Pa Awo and the entire Yoruba race.

  • Fireman

    Say No to PDP!!!

  • SpeakOut

    There is no doubt or arguments, the so pdpigs are involved in this, I am very disappointed, calling for the resignation of those aforementioned, what a shamesless party pdpigs are, we won’t be distracted, Nigeria must benefit from this Change.

  • G1gbolahan

    Who else thinks the APC is missing the services of Alhaji Lai Mohammed. He would have properly put the PDP in their place with that reckless statement. Buhari should focus on governance and not allow all these distractors wishing Nigeria bad to have a field day

    • katalyst

      Yes! Like he has focused on governance for the past 9 months and dollar is N305 today.

      • SpeakOut

        Truly you need someone to educate you on what forecast is, your GEJ that has no shoes and bag, brought the whole problem to HER nation, with his recklessness, and lack of good leadership qualifications, you can’t blame PBM for misappropriation of funds from the previous administrations.

      • musa aliyu

        Na you and your rogue money changers sabi

      • Julius

        Do you know why its 305 today ? I know thinking is not one of your attributes but, try. Hint, Jonathan left the country in tartar , bad shapes !

  • eclub

    To: PDP

    There’s no way Nigerians are going to take you seriously, if indeed you believe some of your press releases, including allegations that the president is a dictator, has been jailing oppositions, has been committing massacres, has been doctoring or forging, or even usurping the courts and the assembly, consequently, you are calling for his impeachment, if you want to be taken seriously, and in fact you will win almost everybody you lost back if you do one thing: borrow from Buhari’s words and MAKE THE COUNTRY UNGOVERNABLE.

    That’s it. Play ball, or go home.

    • G1gbolahan

      For your mind, you don talk. Lol

    • dpfrank

      Who is this one? Abeg park well!!!

    • Julius

      ????……. More embarrassments ?

  • SpeakOut

    Please, pdp you guys did miserable 16yrs with no achievement, do you havr to be an hindrances to more than 160 millions Nigerians Success?

  • SpeakOut

    there is a conspiracy by the leadership of the senate to embarrass the Buhari government and also use this budget of change as a bargaining chip to get soft landing as regards Bukola saraki case at CCT. As custodians of change it is imperative for us all to expose this conspiracy. Bukola Saraki should not be allowed to hold Nigerians hostage.

  • Night Crawler

    pdp must be joking, they will ty but won’t succeed, this is one of the reason why saraki should be impeached, how will a national budget be missing in NASS, if his looking for soft landing in CCT, he must be joking

  • aaapeeeceee!

    APC IS A PARTY OF ILLITERATES AND ILLITERATES ARE THE MAJORITY IN NIGERIA;

    SO, APC WON THE 2015 ELECTION. VERY SIMPLE LOGIC. ONLY THE SHALLOW CAN
    CALL TO THE SHALLOW. UP ILLITERATES, UP APC! ILLITERACY FOREVER, UP APC!

    • Inamani

      @obindros:disqus

      It is sad how the coalition of illiterates
      in APC overrode Nigerians. It is a tragedy of historical proportion. Look at
      this Press statement by APC! No sense, no logic, nothing – just plain bereft
      nonsense! It is understandable that APC is led by WAEC certificate forgers
      and school drop-outs than that educated Nigerians do not feel diminished or
      insulted to be governed by the known thieves and intellectually empty APC
      apparatchiks. Where is Nigeria going? The only obvious projection is that
      Nigeria is on the way to becoming an Islamic State because mass illiteracy is
      the first condition for Islamism. Nigeria seems to have met that condition if a
      ruling party’s secretariat could issue such no-brainier on a serious issue of
      felonious crime implicating the president of the republic.

      • dpfrank

        Are you not ashamed that the illiterates you are talking about are the products of your educated PDP who just left power eight months ago? Shame on PDP for the state of underdevelopment and shambles they left Nigeria.

      • Julius

        hahahahaha, Ibo online lawyer ! You should be helping kanu and Methu. You are a joke biko.

    • Chuks

      For 16 solid years the PDP produced more illiterates in Nigeria, creating a majority of illiterates in APC that voted for change against PDP’s lack of education policy.

      • musa aliyu

        Kai, Na gode, in Hausa, Ose, in Yoruba, Thank you, in English, Daalu, in igbo

      • Julius

        lolz and the illiterates voted them out !

    • Basketmouth

      You are one of the illiterates or else you will not capitalize your comments. It is like shouting on top of your lungs in a room filled with quiet people. That is an evidence of damaged psyche by the deranged administration of moribund PDP.

      • dpfrank

        This is the f00lish Kola Adekola, if Nigerians and APC are full of illiterates, common sense should tell you that it is the result of the 16 years of misrule by the PDP. Go and hide your face in shame, f00lish Kola Adekola

    • woman leader

      U are one of the illiterate in Nigeria. As for Buhari and Apc members they are competent. Buhari is very very good president and I pray u people realize this soon. Pdp are in charge of the missing budget saraki is just looking for a way to dudge his case.

      • Julius

        He wont evade the law this time. They threw out impeachment to cover up what saraki will be facing soon. It wont work

    • Plenty

      @aaapeeeceee…
      I’m not too sure you know what it means when you write all your letters in capital?. Your definition of illiteracy is so primitive and it shows how good you are ironically. It’s time we stop talking about party and have a positive mental attitude towards the national development.

  • g3eeeeeeee

    APC is a desperate party with desperate people determined to hold on to power by all means and anyone that speaks against the Efcc tool would be used against them. This is simple logic. What the presidency should be looking at is to wiegh the effect of totally using its strenght to fight against corruption to using 20% of its strength against corruption and 80% devoted to the economy. This is not the early 80’s economic strategies of countries have change based in the competitiveness of every nation to to build a solid economics background. Buari should adapt to this to this diversity to enable Nigeria to build a strong ecomony. And also listen to advice from professionals.

    • dpfrank

      How can Mr President build economy when you PDP s had stolen our budget?

  • dpfrank

    PDP is full of mischief, their plans to destroy the change we voted for has failed. It is obvious that they are behind the missing budget

  • For the salvation of our country, Buhari should be IMPEACHED. The shame this APC fraudsters have brought on us is unimaginable. Efforts to “doctored” this budget will fail. We want all the looted monies by the governors to finance Buhari’s election returned.

    • Olu from South Africa

      “The shame this APC fraudsters have brought on us is unimaginable”….. could you please define “us” in your vaguely sentence?

      • Julius

        lol, thank you !. He cant.

    • Julius

      Yea and make Saraki the President. Right ?

    • excel

      only a lunatic will come online to spill this trash.

  • favourtalk

    pdp is not not happy because of the shame thier candidate and boys had put them into over the months after discovering the amount of loots his people stole from Nigeria. We are ignoring them because they are gone for good in Nigeria already…

  • 24087

    This has shown that we need educated and enlightened people in all leleadership sphere. Now the international community sees us as unserious people as a nation , how can any serious investors take us seriously. If there are changes to be made are there not suppose to use right way to get things done instead of this crude ways

    • Julius

      How can any serious investor invest in a country that looted an arms purchase fund meant to make the country safe ?

  • MushinSpeaks

    I laugh…same PDP that destroyed our economy and open treasury gates for its members? Laughable comment.

  • excel

    pdpig can be mean!! the blackmail is too cheap. saraki and is rogues should find something else cause this can’t stand as a bargain for his trail.
