Following moves to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari at a close door session on Wednesday, Senator Hamma Misau, representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District has criticized his Colleagues for leaking top secrets to journalists.
Moving a motion through Order 43 of the Senate, 2015 Standing Rules, he said it was a tradition of the Senate that whatever was discussed at a closed-door session must be held back from the prying eyes of journalists, while expressing disappointment that after such session, some Senators would reveal the whole deliberations to journalists.
While displaying copies of some National Dailies, and reading through headlines and sub titles, the pro Saraki Senator advised that lawmaker should have been mature enough to hold confidential issues close to their chest.
“Mr. President, Distinguished Colleagues, I am holding some copies of the National Dailies here with headlines, ‘Senate plots Impeachment of President Buhari. Why did some of our colleagues disclose issues at close door?, ” he asked.
Misau who did not deny the impeachment plot questioned why some dailies said himself and two others were those insisting that Buhari must be impeached.
In his respnse, the Senate President referred the matter to Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions.
