Address rising insecurity or face impeachment, Senators threaten Buhari



Buhari and Senate impeachment

Senators from the opposition parties have threatened to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari if he fails to address the rising insecurity in the country.

Senate Minority Leader Philip Aduda disclosed this while addressing reporters after the opposition lawmakers angrily stormed out of the Senate plenary.

Aduda stated that President has been given six weeks ultimatum to address the insecurity situation or face impeachment. 

The opposition lawmakers were chanting “Buhari must go, and Lawan should follow” to protest the worsening insecurity across the country.

It was gathered that trouble started when Aduda raised a point of order for the Senate to deliberate on issues raised at the closed-door session, which lasted for two hours.

The Senate President Ahmad Lawan had, after the executive session, announced that issues relating to the workings of the Senate and the unity of Nigeria were discussed and asked the Senate leaders to proceed with the items listed on the Order Paper.

Aduda had raised a point of order to call for deliberation on issues discussed at the closed session, but Lawan ruled him out of order.

The ruling got the opposition Senators angry, and they stormed out of the plenary, chanting songs and calling for President Buhari to quit.
