Federal Government has reacted to Wednesday’s threat by Peoples Democratic Party Senators to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
The opposition lawmakers had earlier on Wednesday, given the President six weeks to tackle insecurity or face impeachment proceedings.
But the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, while speaking on the development after a meeting of the Federal Executive Council, assured that the Federal Government is working “round the clock” to address security challenges.
The Minister said, “It was passed when we were deliberating, but we thank them for their patriotism and their concern. We are working round the clock, 24 hours, to ensure that the situation is brought under control.
“I want to assure you that the President is aware of all these, and as a matter of fact, I think tomorrow, there’s going to be another Security Council meeting.
“So, it’s not a matter the President is taking lightly, and like I’ll always say, some of the measures we’re going to take are not measures that you can discuss openly here. But we’re as concerned as you are. We’re not going to abandon our responsibility.”
