‘It is too late to impeach Buhari’ – PDP Reps

Some  lawmakers under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representatives have said it is a bit too late to call for impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Recall, some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senators, who were joined by some of their All Progressives Congress (APC) colleagues, as well as their counterparts in the House of Representatives, had issued a six-week ultimatum to the president to find a solution to the insecurity plaguing the country or be impeached.

Reacting to the development, some of the opposition lawmakers on Sunday, August 7, 2022, were not interested.

They said the timing was wrong, fearing it may take a long time to actualize

Recall that the current administration has barely 9 months to round off.

One of the lawmakers said “We called on members of NASS to commence impeachment of Mr. President 2 years ago and we also urged Nigerians to call on their Representatives to commence impeachment.

“We did so because we identified the incompetence of the present administration and its irresponsive posture to the yearnings of the people and its glaring inability to protect the lives of Nigerians which is a fundamental constitutional breach.

“Perhaps members were then either too busy or just laid back to appreciate what we were saying. It was branded a personal call. Both Nigerians and parliamentarians, including the Press, played it down.

“The present call for impeachment only vindicates us and very sincerely is coming late in the day and not much benefit will come to the masses.

“I respect the parliament for even rising up at all but I will not be surprised to hear that the call has been dropped.

“I pray that Nigerian Lives matter to all of us in various public offices. This insecurity is like rainfall, it doesn’t discriminate on grounds of political leaning, tribe or religion. It falls on all roofs. We cannot tell who will be a victim. Extreme measure is required because its an extreme situation that we find ourselves now.”

Another lawmaker who craved anonymity said “I am not aware. I was never in support of the impeachment considering the time it will require to see the process through, more so that the presiding officers in both chambers are the president’s yes men.”

Similarly, another opposition lawmaker in his own remarks simply intoned “Not interested in all that farce”.
