The Federal Government has said its reaction to yesterday’s court order of mandamus for the National Assembly to begin impeachment process against President Muhammadu Buhari, is on hold for now. Recall that a Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, Osun state, presided over by Justice Maureen Onyetenu, had yesterday given the order in a motion filed before her by the Chairman, Nigeria Bar Association, Ilesa branch, Mr. Kanmi Ajibola; and a human rights activist, Mr. Suleiman Adeniyi.
Speaking to State House correspondents after the federal executive council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said he cannot react because he had no information on it. Asked to give government’s reaction to the the case, Mohammed said he was just hearing of it for the first time.
“I’m just hearing it from you. I will have to read it myself,” he said.
