A House of Representative member of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Edo State, Johnson Agbonayinma has stated that there are some plans by his colleagues to impeach the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo over the alleged approval of funds for the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA.
Mr Agbonayinma made this allegation on Tuesday while addressing journalists.
He alleged that political gladiators and media houses were sponsoring fake news against Mr Osinbajo. He attributed this to the recent report by the House of Representatives committee on Emergency and disaster preparedness investigation report that indicted the Vice President.
In the report, the committee alleged that N5.8 billion was approved and released in June 2017 with a memo raised from the Office of the Acting President (Osinbajo), directing the Minister of Finance and the Accountant-General of the Federation to so act.
The committee in its findings concluded that the payment made was in contravention of the approval of the National Assembly.
