Like opposition senators, the minority caucus of the House of Representatives on Thursday gave President Muhammadu Buhari a six-week ultimatum to address growing insecurity in the country or face impeachment in the National Assembly.
This was revealed by the Minority Leader of the House of Reps, Ndudi Elumelu after a closed door meeting of the joint minority caucus of the National Assembly.
According to Elumelu, the signatures would be gathered to impeach the President if the security situation is not addressed.
He decried the general state of the nation, including the exchange rate and aviation crisis.
Senators of the opposition political parties on Wednesday staged a walkout on the floor of the red chambers after Senate President Ahmad Lawan refused to allow them the opportunity to raise the threat to impeach Buhari at plenary.
Minority Leader of the Senate, Philip Aduda had raised a point of order asking the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, to discuss the security situation in the country and the impeachment of President Buhari.
But Lawan declined the request.
