PDP Senators Seek Buhari’s Impeachment, Give 6 Weeks Ultimatum

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senators caucus, Wednesday, vowed to kickstart moves to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari over the heightening insecurity in Nigeria.

The lawmakers, who walked out of the plenary on Wednesday as a way of protest, lamented the high level of insecurity across the nation including Abuja, the seat of the Federal government.

Speaking to newsmen after they stormed out of the Chambers in a fit of rage, the minority leader Senator Philip Aduda and others issued a six-week ultimatum to the president to fix the issue.

The caucus said the impeachment issue was raised during a two-hour meeting, but the Senate President was unwilling to allow the matter to be tabled at the plenary despite their agreement.

Aduda who represents the Federal Capital Territory in the upper legislative Chamber said: “We went into a closed-door session on the state of insecurity in Abuja and took cognisance that Nigeria is no longer safe.” The Senate, however, recommended various measures.

“We agreed in the closed session that we will give President Muhammadu Buhari an ultimatum, but the Senate President Dr Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan didn’t want us to raise the issue.

“However, we have issued six weeks for President Buhari to resolve insecurity or be impeached. We walked out of Chambers in protest,” says Aduda.
