Nigerians from all works of life have called for outright impeachment of President Muhammad Buhari for not heeding to invitation to appear before federal house of Representatives resolution.
Federal house of Representatives resolution had invited the President to address the house on security situation in the country immediately after the gruesome murder of over 43 rice farmers in Borno state of Nigeria.
The calls were made overwhelmingly during paper review and phoning programme of Liberty Radio aired in kaduna on Friday morning.
The callers of the less than 1hour paper review and phoning programme, complaint that the non appearance of the President before the reps Thursday as earlier scheduled is unconstitutional.
From the first to the last callers, all of them, exception of one, said rescinding of decision to appeared before the people who reserved the power and rights to impeached him, on ground of security and confidentiality is unconstitutional and counterproductive to the depth of insecurity challenges in the country.
Callers repeatedly expressed wonder that the President’s rights to extend the tenure of service chiefs, not to appear before federal house of representatives, abisemal disregard to quota system, this and that, were responsible for the enormous challenges the country is hitherto facing, and therefore called for his immediate impeachment by the house.
