APC Reacts To Siege On National Assembly

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the siege on the National Assembly by agents of the Department of State Services (DSS).

The ruling party reacted through its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena.

According to Nabena,what happened was a “strictly legislative” 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, 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.”

Masked DSS operatives had on Tuesday morning blocked all the entrances to the National Assembly complex, and prevented lawmakers and their aides from entering.

Lawmakers had to force their way in as part of plans to foil what they believed was the beginning of a plan to illegally impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki.
