It has been reported that some members of the Senate, who are calling for impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari are not serious about the issue.
This was disclosed by the Senate, after two members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senators, Francis Fadahunsi (Osun East), and Biodun Olujimi (Ekiti South) said the Senate should not hesitate to take necessary constitutional legislative action against Buhari, if the current insecurity continue unabated.
Reacting to this, the Senate spokesperson, who is also an APC member representing the Osun Central Senatorial District, has stated on Friday, that his colleagues should not play politics with the issue of security.
According to reports, Basiru said, “I don’t think they (pro-impeachment senators), are serious about it! They ought to know better that national security is not a politics play thing.”
Meanwhile, Fadahunsi contributed to a motion moved by Senator Sani Musa on the state of insecurity on the floor of the Senate last month, saying that something drastic must be done, adding that the Senate must do its work.
According to the Senator, “When the government cannot maintain security again, economic problem is mounting then something drastic must be done. We have the power. We can install and we can remove.”
Fadahunsi added that, “If it means we have to look at that clause, we have to sit down during an executive session and harmonise and do it the way we should do it.”
It was also reported that Olujimi, who is representing Ekiti South in the upper chamber on the platform of the PDP had also stated that the Senate should not hesitate to opt for Buhari’s impeachment whenever the need arose.
