The Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, has dismissed the impeachment threat by some members of the National Assembly as a hoax which exists in the imagination of mischief makers.

Mr Shehu made this remark while commenting on the recent failed coup attempt in Turkey.

Regarding the purported impeachment ‎threat on the President by the National Assembly, he emphasized the need for Nigeria to uphold its democracy.

Mr Garba Shehu commended the people of Turkey for rising up in defence of democracy.

He condemned those who attempted to take over government through violent means.

President Buhari had also earlier condemned the failed Turkey coup, “The removal of a democratic government by force is no longer acceptable. Violence can never solve any problem but only complicates them and sets back the progress of democratic societies,” he said.

He also offered Nigeria’s support to the government and people of Turkey in their hour of trial.
