The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Dino Melaye, has denied media reports that he was plotting and instigating the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him, the people spreading the falsehood were those who believe that a Nigeria that is not led by them must not exist.

Melaye represents Kogi West Senatorial District in the Red Chambers of the National Assembly, under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

A statement personally issued by him on Wednesday in Abuja said the allegation “is the narrative of the attack dogs of demagogues who have decided to turn Nigeria upside down for failing to choose leaders for Senators.”

He said: “It is pertinent to note that the incredulously machinated misinformation was orchestrated by forces bent on destabilising the upper chambers of the Nigerian Parliament for selfish reasons.

“One of the mushroom and faceless online platforms used to promote the ill-fated and calumnious write-up has been notorious for serving as the propagandist machinery of political commercialists who are pushing for the extension of their fiefdom to the National Assembly.

“While I remain unimpeachably committed to the leadership of the Senate, I believe the respected arm of government charged with the onerous responsibility of law making should be given the independence to conduct its business.

“It is untrue and malicious; the allegation is the narrative of the attack dogs of demagogues who have decided to turn Nigeria upside down for failing to choose leaders for Senators.

“I am a responsible Nigerian, role model and a champion of anti-corruption and equity which my party (APC) stands for. I therefore urge the general public to discountenance the libellous publication as I will continue to respect the history, culture and excellence of my Kogi West people on the floor of the Senate. The true threat to the current Republic are those who believe that a Nigeria that is not led by them must not exist.”
