Insecurity: Reps to Join in Buhari Impeachment

President Muhammadu Buhari has been given a six-week deadline to address insecurity or face being impeached by the National Assembly, according to the minority caucus of the House of Representatives and its Senate counterpart.

The minority leader of the House of Reps, Ndudi Elumelu, stated this after a closed-door meeting of the joint minority caucus of the National Assembly on Thursday.

According to Elumelu, if the security crisis is not resolved, signatures would be gathered to impeach the president.

Along with the currency rate and the aviation situation, he also brought up the state of the country in general.

On the floor of the red chambers on Wednesday, senators participated in a walkout, the majority of whom were members of the opposition caucus.

To debate the country’s security situation and President Buhari’s impeachment, Senate Minority Leader Philip Aduda raised a point of order and requested that Senate President Ahmad Lawan.

Lawan, who presided over the plenary, rejected the minority leader’s request, claiming that the raised point of order was frivolous.

The Senators gave the President a six-week deadline to address nationwide insecurity or risk being impeached at a briefing following the walkout.
