Worried by the high rate of insecurity in Nigeria, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caucus in the House of Representatives has called for the immediate impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Acccording to the leader of the caucus, Rep. Kingsley Chinda, Buhari deserves to be impeached for gross incompetence .
He also said that the President has continued breach of Section 14(2) (b) of the 1999 Constitution.
He calls on the Federal Executive Council to invoke the provisions of Section 144 (1) of the Constitution against Buhari
The caucus said “The President or Vice-President shall cease to hold office, if – by a resolution passed by two-thirds majority if all the members of the executive council of the Federation, it is declared that the President or Vice-President is incapable of discharging the functions of his office.”
It added: “Nigerians are daily and defencelessly killed by terrorists and bandits, while the economy is being freely bled by public officers.”
It knocked the Buhari-led government, saying that the body language of the administration is very bad as it gives terrorists more boldness.
“Northern Nigeria has long become the vortex of massacres. From Buni Yadi, Gamboru, Baga, Gwoza, Shiroro, Konduga, Kawuri, Southern Kaduna to Benue and certainly everywhere else in Nigeria, lives are being snatched by insurgents, bandits and kidnappers who have no respect for the sanctity of life.
“While President Buhari idles in the typical fashion of Emperor Nero as our country burns, questions must be asked about his capacity to lead at a time that our country desires robust and responsible leadership that can pull it from the brink and rescue it from the insurgents, terrorists, bandits and kidnappers.
“President Buhari is unwilling to provide leadership to our fast collapsing country. Rather than take the proverbial bull by the horn, President Buhari ensconces himself in Aso Rock, typical of a mourner-in-chief, and issues press statements that make no meaning to a grieving nation.
“We call on Nigerians across tribe, religion and political party to wake up their National Assembly members and compel them to commence the impeachment process against President Buhari to save Nigeria,” it said.
