BREAKING: Senators move to impeach Buhari over insecurity

Senators, mostly from the minority bloc and some from the All Progressives Congress (APC), have called for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment due to the country’s deteriorating security.

They gave President Buhari six weeks to reduce insecurity or face formal impeachment proceedings.

Senators walked out of the plenary after Senate President Ahmad Lawan refused to agree to Minority Leader Philip Aduda’s motion that the Senate debate cases of rising insecurity in the country.

The Senators, who briefed reporters after leaving the Senate, insisted that during their two-hour closed-door session, they agreed to debate the issue of insecurity and issue an impeachable ultimatum to Buhari.

They were enraged as Lawan refused to follow their resolution after reverting to plenary following the closed-door session,

“Buhari must go!” they chanted.

The lawmakers, who angrily stormed out of the plenary around 2.10 pm, were all chanting “Buhari must go” repeatedly.

Addressing journalists at the Senate Press Corps, Centre, the Minority Leader, Senator Philip Aduda, said they gave President Buhari six weeks ultimatum within which he must resolve the heightened insecurity in the country or face impeachment from the National Assembly.

Aduda, who was flanked by many other lawmakers from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the newly formed New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) expressed displeasure at the daily occurrence of kidnappings, killings, extortions by the terrorists and bandits across the country.
