The move by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Senators to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari is presently acquiring backing from concerned Nigerians.
Recall that the PDP Senators caucus on Wednesday organized a walkout from the upper Chamber in protest of the increasing insecurity in the country.
The minority leader, Senator Philip Aduda said the PDP senators gave President Muhammadu Buhari six weeks to resolve terrorist attacks in the nation or face impeachment.
Responding, the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom commended the lawmakers over the move to force the president to handle the security crisis.
The Governor who talked in Abuja yesterday portrayed the decision of the Senate to impeach the President as “patriotic” and praised a some individuals from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC who have likewise selected to do the ‘right thing’.
Essentially, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, head of New Media, Anthony Ehilebo who talked with INFOXCLUSIVE on Friday, said the only solution for the ongoing security crisis shaking the country was to impeach the president.
He requested that Buhari hand over to the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, expressing that the VP can end the activities of terrorists in the country.
Ehilebo said, “solution right now is to impeach Buhari and allow Osinbajo to work, even if it’s for one day, you will notice improvement.
“Osinbajo has the capacity to rejig. He knows what to do. I’m afraid if Buhari continues to remain in power with the way things are right now, we will all be doomed.
“God forbid. They have annexed FCT already and if you are a strategist, you won’t even allow terrorists in states like Kaduna, Niger, Kogi and Nasarawa.
“Because taking over those states means an invasion of the FCT. Which of these states I mentioned earlier does not have a contingency of ISWAP, Boko Haram and bandits?
“The president has not thought about getting Private Military Contractors, PMC, immediately. The military cannot handle it anymore.
“Push them back to the fringes. And look, the president left our borders open and porous. Why not put the same checks you have up south here? And why are the service chiefs still in power?
“What is the justification? Issue out riot orders. What are the formations in Jaji? All those formations in Kaduna. Clean up the northwest first. Put these guys on their toes.
“Unfortunately, these guys are the ones advancing. Now, since the Kuje incident, no affirmative action. Who and who was sacked”?
Notwithstanding, the Presidency while responding to the impeachment move, in a statement by the President’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, depicted the action of the opposition senators as childish, encouraging them to invest their effort to more better things.
