Senators of the Nigerian senate have threatened to impeach President Buhari over the worsening security issues in the country.
It was gathered that the lawmakers were thoroughly displeased with the silence on terrorists’ threat to go after President Buhari; Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai; and top Nigerian politicians.
After intense pressure on him, Lawan succumbed, and agreed that the issue of insecurity be discussed publicly at plenary and not at a closed session.
“We shouted out to the President of the Senate that it must be discussed and when he refused, we threatened that we will begin impeachment move against President Buhari because the country is not safe,” a source said.
This is not the first time that lawmakers will threaten to remove President Buhari.
In June 2018, the National Assembly threatened to impeach the president if he did not accede to a list of demands it made.
In May 2021, Federal lawmakers bickered over threat by opposition legislators to impeach President Buhari.
