ABUJA – Presidency Tuesday stated that President Mohammadu Buhari would not intervene in the lingering crisis rocking the National Assembly, citing separation of powers as reason for that.
This came as Sokoto Governor and Chairman, Peace Committee on House of Representatives Leadership crisis, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal said that peace process was on going, promising that soon, the crisis would be resolved.
President Buhari had come under pressure from many quarters for his apparent docility amid the lingering face off in the National Assembly and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, accusing him of not being assertive.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Vanguard in Abuja on the apparent docility of the the president amid the lingering cobwebs in the National Assembly and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina that President Buhari has since chosen to give recourse to both the Constitution of the land and the principle of separation of powers to which Nigeria based its federalism.
Adesina said that Buhari’s intervention would portray him as a “dictator or a despot” which he said runs at variance with the democratic ethos and values. Buhari not a dictator, will respect principle of separation of powers.
