Senator Francis Fadahunsi representing Osun East Senatorial District and the Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Customs and Excise, has disclosed that President Buhari will be impeached if the insecurity in the country remains the same when the National Assembly will resume sitting on September 20.
Newsonline reports that the senator also stated that other members of the Red Chamber have also given their willingness to impeach the senate president Ahmed Lawan if he tries to block the senators from carrying out their constitutional duties.
Senator Francis Fadahunsi disclosed that the National Assembly have been suggesting ways to curb the insecurity ravaging the country, according to him the president failed to carry out their recommendation.
Senator Fadahunsi who stated this on Wednesday in Abuja, in an interview with journalists said Ahmed Lawan had been frustrating their moves to take drastic measures against the president.
He said, “We have been talking and giving suggestions on how we could end the insecurity challenges facing the country but the Head (Senate President) is hooked to the Villa. He has been frustrating all our moves to take drastic measures against the President.”
He further added that the time has come for the senate to take action before the country is destroyed by bandits.
“We have now made up our mind to strike now that the iron is still hot instead of wasting our time, cooperating with the Ahmad Lawan leadership while the nation is being destroyed by terrorists with no plan by the government to stop them. We won’t wait until we are all killed.
“We have now decided to pull out of the ‘rubber stamp’ arrangement so that the whole of Nigeria would know that we have not been in support of the failing economy, the huge debts accumulation, falling naira, insecurity across the country and the unprecedented forms of corruption going on in the polity.
“Unfortunately, the man heading us now (Lawan) was leading the opposition lawmakers before and was challenging the rots in the system then. Now, he doesn’t want anyone to challenge Buhari’s government when things are falling apart every day. Any leader that opposes such a challenge in a democratic setting must also be challenged because we are elected by the people.
“Go and interview most of the senators. There is no effective oversight of the ministries, departments and agencies of the Federal Government. Buhari will bring the budget and his people here will want us to pass it as he brings it. No examinations and heads of MDAs are doing what they like,” he added.
Senator Fadahunsi vowed that if things remain the same in insecurity when the senate resumes sitting on September 20, the president will be impeached.
He added that Ahmed Lawan will also face impeachment if he tries to block the move against President Buhari.
“If anybody tries to block us here, whether the Senate President or anyone in the Senate, we will remove the person. Mr President is finding it difficult to sack his non-performing security chiefs while those terrorizing the nation are not being arrested. There was tension everywhere and something drastic had to be taken,” he stated.
