National Assembly Threatens To Impeach Buhari
The National Assembly on Tuesday rose from a joint closed-door session and resolved to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
This is if he fails to address incessant killings across the country, persecution of perceived political enemies and growing rate of unemployment across the country.
In veiled reference to the face-off between Senate President Bukola Saraki and the police boss, both chambers resolved that President Muhammadu Buhari must be held accountable for the actions of his appointees.
They insisted that the President must be ready to sanction those that carry out acts that will endanger the country's democracy.
The Police on Sunday invited Saraki over his role in the April 5, 2018 Offa bank robberies in which nine policemen and 33 persons were killed and millions of naira stolen.
But following public outcry that greeted the invitation against the nation's number three citizen, the police made a U-turn on Monday and urged Saraki to put his defence in writing to the Police headquarters within 48 hours.
Saraki read the resolutions of the executive session which lasted for about four hours.
“The National Assembly will not hesitate to evoke its constitutional powers if nothing is done to address the above resolutions passed today," he said in conclusion to other resolutions from the session.
The lawmakers also passed a vote of no confidence on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
