- The new APC faction has been described by Buba Galadima as full of honesty and integrity
- He claimed they have the largest number in the National Assembly
- According to him, Nigerians from all works of life have shown solidarity with the R-APC
The Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) has threatened that it can carry out an impeachment if need be boasting that it has the majority in the National Assembly.
This Day reports that Buba Galadima who is the chairman of the faction said this on Friday, July 6.
He said: “I want to say that today, as I sit here, if I give a directive to our members in the National Assembly to impeach for constitutional infractions, it would be carried out because we have that majority.”
He said contrary to a statement credited to Adams Oshiomhole who is the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that members of the R-APC were inconsequential, they were people of integrity.
Galadima said: “On that side, there is no man of integrity and honesty as Buba Galadima. Those of us that had sacrificed our sweat and blood cannot sit idly and watch these values destroyed. This is the beginning of what is called crisis in the party.
“We believe that all the values and visions of APC have been thrown to the dustbin.
“Nigerians from all works of life have shown solidarity with us. For those who said that they are not losing sleep, why are they scampering to the National Assembly to beg cap in hand?”
Meanwhile, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) dissociated itself from a group claiming to be a faction of the party.
