President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned members of the All Progressives Congress in the Senate to a meeting at the Presidential Villa on Monday (today) over Onnoghen’s suspension.
The meeting, which is going to hold at the Banquet Hall, is being tagged as ‘a dinner’.
Invitations to the dinner were signed by the Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation, who is also the Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi.
Onnoghen was suspended on Friday by President Buhari based on an ex parte order granted by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
He is facing six counts of false assets declaration filed against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau.
Buhari’s meeting with the APC Senators will take place ahead of the Senate emergency resumption on Tuesday (tomorrow) when decisions are expected to be taken on Onnoghen’s suspension by the President.
Recall that the APC caucus in the Senate at the weekend had vowed to resist any attempt by the presiding officers of the National Assembly to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Buhari.
Meanwhile, the APC senators’ meeting with the President, it was gathered, would take a position on how to counter the expected condemnation of the CJN’s suspension by the members of the opposition in the Senate on Tuesday.
Also, members of the APC Caucus in the House of Representatives have scheduled an emergency meeting for Monday (today).
The Majority Leader, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, called the meeting, according to a text message circulating among the lawmakers on Sunday.
“Honourable colleagues, there will be a meeting of the APC caucus tomorrow, Monday, at 4pm. Venue is the White House Hearing Room 1. Thank you. Femi Gbajabiamila,” the message sighted by reporters read.
