Stop Terrorist Attacks Or Face Impeachment In Six Weeks, Senators Tells Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senators caucus on Wednesday have issued President Muhammadu Buhari six weeks to resolve worsening terrorist attacks in the country or face impeachment in six weeks.

They senators gave the ultimatum on Wednesday after they staged a walkout from the Red Chambers in protest against the heightening insecurity in Nigeria.

The minority leader Senator Philip Aduda who was later flanked by others at a press briefing said the impeachment issue was raised during a two-hour closed-door but the Senate President was unwilling to allow the matter to be tabled at the plenary despite their agreement.

Aduda stressed that insecurity needed to be addressed immediately because, “it’s obvious that Abuja, the seat of the Federal government is no longer safe, as you all can see.”

The senator, 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

“Senate has recommended various measures and discovered that even Abuja is no longer safe.

“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.”
