Atiku Condemns Move to Impeach Ortom


As the situation in the Benue State House of Assembly continue to play out, former Nigeria’s Vice President Atiku Abubakar has condemned what he described as the awkward political development in Benue State.

Reacting to the political development in a statement in Abuja on Monday, the former Vice President says he is greatly embarrassed by the unfolding political drama in Benue State.

According to him, any attempt to disregard the rule of law and constitution in the impeachment of a governor is a recipe for anarchy and officially sanctioned lawlessness.

Atiku expressed regret that for a state facing security challenges like Benue, the introduction of lawlessness in the impeachment process could only complicate an already bad situation.

He urged the police to remain politically neutral and avoid aiding lawlessness, adding that partisanship could professionally destroy the image of police.
