A chieftain of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, Olusegun Bamgbose, has called on the National Assembly to amend the Constitutions to provide for the President’s recall by those who voted for him.
According to Olusegun Bamgbose, considering the high level of insecurity in the country and the federal government’s lackadaisical attitude to nip it in the bud, it had become necessary and imperative to amend the Constitutions.
In Olusegun Bamgbose’s chat with DAILY POST on Tuesday, he noted that if the Constitution provided for the recall of any member of the National Assembly, the same should be extended to the Executive President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Olusegun Bamgbose, who is hoping to take over at the Aso Villa come 2023, further noted that the constitutions’ procedure to impeach a sitting President Muhammadu Buhari is almost impossible to be carried out.
“It’s a difficult task to impeach the President given the conditions laid down in our Constitution. There should be an alternative to this; the Constitution should be amended to provide for the recall of the President by those who voted for him,” he said.
According to Olusegun Bamgbose, “President Buhari is due for recall by the electorate if the Constitution had provided for it. I wonder how Nigerians can cope with Buhari’s Presidency for the next 30 months.
“It’s like spending 30 months in hell. Nigerians’ lives and properties are now at the mercy of Boko Haram insurgents, bandits, shooters, kidnappers.
“May God deliver us. Our lives can no longer be guaranteed. Those in their houses are not safe; traveling is not really sure they won’t be kidnapped.
“Farmers can no longer harvest or work in their farms without obtaining permission from the military. We are certainly living in hell. All our President does is to condemn and condole.
“This is certainly not the best of time for Nigerians. APC has certainly scammed us. Promises of change have trapped us; this is so sad.
“No doubt if the impeachment of Buhari were left in the hands of Nigeria, by now, he would have been impeached. One wonders how Nigerians will survive another 30 months of Buhari’s administration.
“Nigerians should brace up for the challenges ahead. Nigerians are fed up with Buhari’s administration. They promised change, but we are experiencing a crisis, we expected dividends of democracy, but difficulties have become our daily experience.
“May God deliver us from this government given to excuses and propaganda. Nigerians never bargained for this type of government.”
