APC Reps To Impeach Dogara When House Reconvenes

Hon. Peter Akpatason, representing Akoko-Edo in the House of Representatives, has disclosed that loyal members of the APC in the House will carry out the party’s instruction on Speaker Yakubu Dogara as soon as they resume.

Akpatason spoke to journalists in Benin on Wednesday, against the backdrop of the recent defection of the speaker to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He said that when the house reconvened, “the needful” would be done regarding the leadership of both chambers of the National Assembly.

The lawmaker however emphasised that whatever that would be done to address the issue, would be according the law of land.

According to the former NUPENG President, it is an aberration for a member of another political party to continue to be speaker of the House of Representatives.

“We, as party loyalists, will carry out any instruction we get from the party. We will study the situation when we get back. Whatever the situation is will be what we will react to.

“We cannot be happy to have a speaker that belongs to another party. It is an aberration and has to be treated as such,” he said.
