VIDEO: ‘Buhari must go’, angry Senators chant over worsening insecurity

Angry Senators on Wednesday asked Muhammadu Buhari to quit office over incessesant security issues in Nigeria or face impeachment.

According to the Senators who cut across all political parties, they have given the president all that he needed to tackle the security challenges but that the issue kept getting worse even in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), the seat of power.

The Senators made the resolution after a closed-door meeting with the Senate leadership headed by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, which lasted for about two hours in the red chamber on Wednesday.

After the closed-door meeting, the Senate President blocked move by the lawmakers to present their resolutions on the impeachment of Buhari over insecurity at plenary, a development which angered the Senators, who consequently staged a walkout to address the Senate Press Corps.

They include a lawmaker from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa; many Senators from the major opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led by Senator Aduda; Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), and Senator Ibrahim Shekarau of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP).

Also, the lawmaker representing President Buhari’s Katsina North senatorial district, Senator Ahmed Babba Kaita, of the PDP was present at the briefing.
