Nigerian Senators are presently plotting to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari over the recurrent security woes in the country.

Several Senators staged a walk-out from Plenary some days ago after Ahmed Lawan, the senate president blocked plots to discuss Buhari’s failure to solve the country’s security challenges.

They issued a 6-week Ultimatum in a press conference to Buhari to solve the insecurity in the country or face proceedings of impeachment.

In an Interview, Senator Francis Fadahunsi representing Osun East in the Red Chamber confirmed attempts to impeach Buhari. He added that Ahmed Lawan, the senate president will be removed if he blocks proceedings.

According to him: “We have been talking and giving suggestions on how we could end the insecurity challenges facing the country but the Head (Senate President) is hooked to the Villa. He has been frustrating all our moves to take drastic measures against the President.”

“We have now made up our mind to strike now that the iron is still hot instead of wasting our time, cooperating with the Ahmad Lawan leadership while the nation is being destroyed by terrorists with no plan by the government to stop them. We won’t wait until we are all killed.”

“We have now decided to pull out of the ‘rubber stamp’ arrangement so that the whole of Nigeria would know that we have not been in support of the failing economy, the huge debts accumulation, falling naira, insecurity across the country and the unprecedented forms of corruption going on in the polity.”

“Unfortunately, the man heading us now (Lawan) was leading the opposition lawmakers before and was challenging the rots in the system then. Now, he doesn’t want anyone to challenge Buhari’s government when things are falling apart every day. Any leader that opposes such a challenge in a democratic setting must also be challenged because we are elected by the people.”

“Go and interview most of the senators. There is no effective oversight of the ministries, departments and agencies of the federal government. Buhari will bring the budget and his people here will want us to pass it as he brings it. No examinations and heads of MDAs are doing what they like.”

“That is why we resolved that if we come back on September 20 and discovered that the situation is still the same, with no appreciable steps taken, we would impeach him.”, he disclosed.
