On Tuesday, The House of Representatives has reacted to the demands for the Nigerian leader’s impeachment, Muhammadu Buhari.
On Sunday The member representing Obio/Akpor Constituency of Rivers State, Kingsley Chinda has joined the calls.
According to a statement titled ‘Nigeria saddled with the circuses, Kinsely Chinda called on constituents to compel their representatives to commence the impeachments process against President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a rejoinder on Monday, Benjamin Kalu, Reps spokesman, said his opinion had been misinterpreted as the voice of the entire Green Chamber.
Benjamin Kalu also said his colleague’s stance does not represents the weakest opinion of the minority-caucus of the 9th House.
“Even among the minority caucus, Hon Kingsley Chinda lost the opportunity to speak for the entire minority when he lost the minority leadership election to Hon Ndudi Elumelu, the minority leader of the 9th Assembly, a wound that has refused to heal.”
The motive behind the release and the timing leaves a bitter taste in the mouth of most progressives who were instructed by their constituents to requests for interaction with President Muhammad Buhari.
Benjamin Kalu said if the calls came after President visited the National Assembly, it would appear more logical.
“Unfortunately, this call is not only illogical, but it also appears as a tool mischievously thrown up to disrupt the agenda of the coming visit with all it sets out to achieve in the spirit of nation-building, which remains the mantra of the 9th Assembly and is considered a joint task.
“In the view of the 9th Assembly, it would remain a call made wrongfully to distract the members whose minds are set on the visit and the expected achievements.
“It is surprising that Hon Kingsley Chinda was among those who insisted on the invitation of the President, probably expecting a gross disregard from the President who surprisingly broke the jinx and kindly obliged our request.
“Is it not obvious that apparently shocked by the acceptance of Mr. President, he is on a new lonely voyage of personal agenda strange to the legislative agenda of the House and leadership?
“Where was his constitutional impeachment voice when his previous presidents of PDP extractions were invited but ignored the House? One wonders why he remembers his constitution now that a president is coming to accept our inputs to the solutions he is seeking.”
Kalu told Nigerians to be patient and wait for the outcome of Reps’ meeting with Buhari before being “misled by a lone voice on a frolic of his own.”
