‘An Impeachable offence’ – Senators call for Buhari’s impeachment

For not seeking National Assembly approval ahead of the withdrawal of the $496 million useful for the purchase of aircraft from the United States, some senators have asked for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment.

Section 143 of the Nigerian constitution offers removing the president from office.

Moving a motion on the matter on Thursday, Matthew Uroghide, Edo state, said President Buhari’s move was a violation of the constitution and thus, he should face the consequences.

He prayed the Senate to invoke Section 143 to begin the impeachment means of the president.

Seconding the motion, Chukwuka Utazi spoke meant for the move.

“This is an impeachable offence,” an obviously angry Mr Utazi, said.

More senators are now speaking on the issue.
