The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), on Tuesday, August 7, reacted to the siege on the National Assembly by the officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) just as it absolved Adams Oshiomhole of any involvement.
In a short statement, the party, through its acting national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, the party said it was mischievous to link Oshiomhole, its chairman, with the issue.
“Our attention has been drawn to mischievous attempts in some partisan quarters to link Tuesday’s developments in the National Assembly to the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“While the Party is monitoring the developments in the National Assembly like every other concerned Nigerian and stakeholder, there is absolutely no basis for all the false allegations and attempt to blame the APC national chairman for the development there. It is strictly a legislative matter,” the statement made available to NAIJ.com said.
NAIJ.com earlier reported that some senators on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) raised an alarm claiming that their colleagues in the APC have started collecting signatures for the impeachment of Bukola Saraki.

Saraki, the president of the Senate, has remained in the leadership position days after he dumped the ruling APC.
Senator Dino Melaye, a close ally of Saraki and former member of the APC, made the allegation on behalf of the PDP senators.
NAIJ.com also reported that in anticipation of a possible opening of the Senate chamber by lawmakers loyal to President Muhammadu Buhari, operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), took over the National Assembly complex.
