Northern Elders Forum asks National Assembly to impeach President Buhari

Minister of the Environment, Muhammad Mahmoud, disclosed this while fielding questions from State House correspondents at the end of the weekly virtual Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, has called for the President to be impeached for failing to solve Nigeria’s security problems.

Speaking on AIT’s “Kakaaki” programme on Monday, Baba-Ahmed said the nation could not wait two more years for Buhari to address the issues of insecurity.

He said those who had constitutional responsibility must realise that the country was in a dire state, and do something other than just talking and making promises.

He said the second option was for citizens to get together and decide to do something.

The NEF officer said: “The third option is that those leaders who are failing will recognise the fact that they are the problem, and they will resign because they clearly have nothing to offer in terms of leadership.

“Or, as our democratic system provides, those with the responsibility to get them off, should impeach those who are failing. If the President can’t deliver, he should be impeached.

“We don’t have a National Assembly that appears to have the levels of patriotism and concern beyond partisan politics to realise that when this roof falls, it also falls on their heads.

“Partisanship is so pronounced that the people we elected and sent to Abuja think they serve the President rather than the Nigerian people.”
