WE ARE READY TO IMPEACH BUHARI OVER INSECURITY
A federal lawmaker on Thursday said the National Assembly will move to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari if the Executive does not act on its security resolutions.
The House of Representatives on Wednesday inaugurated a 40-man committee to find a solution to the country’s security challenges.
The Committee is set to hold a four-day security summit in May.
Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, the lawmaker representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency, Dachung Bagos said impeachment processes will be initiated if the summit’s resolutions are not acted upon by the Executive.
“If the Executive had implemented 30 per cent of the resolution and advice the National Assembly has been giving, I can assure you we couldn’t have reached this level,” he said.
Instead, he added, the insecurity issue has been politicised by the Executive.
He described the summit as a “last resort.”
“After this summit, if nothing is done – brainstorming, spending resources to bring out solutions – if the Executive does not do anything after some months, then definitely we will call for the resignation of the President,” he said.
“We have the power to impeach the President if he can no longer secure the lives and properties of Nigerians.”
Mr Bagos is also the Deputy Chairman, Anti-Corruption Committee and member of the National Security and Intelligence Committee of the House of Representatives.
However, impeaching the President is an unlikely move as both the House of Representatives and the Senate are controlled by the All Progressives Congress.
Mr Bagos is a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
