President Muhammadu Buhari has come under threat from the caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the House of Representatives.
The opposition party leadership in the green chamber have slammed Buhari with a threat to impeach him in the light of the crisis rocking the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, and the controversy surrounding the 774,000 unskilled jobs.
EFCC and NDDC have been bedeviled by bitter feuds resulting in the suspension of the anti-graft czar, Ibrahim Magu, his investigation by a Presidential panel led by Justice Ayo Salami and an allegation of compromising the war against corruption by his handlers against Attorney General of the Federation and Justice Minister, Abubakar Malami.
On NDDC’s part, its immediate Chairman, Joy Nunieh, and the incumbent Minister of Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio, have been at each other’s throats and in public row.
The PDP caucus of the House in a statement its Chairman, Mr Kingsley Chinda, released on Sunday, said Buhari has not demonstrated the capacity to address the issues and rein in his warring appointees in order to move the country in the right direction.
Chinda explained that the National Assembly may be left with no option than to intervene and hit the President with impeachment.
“Further, and in light of the foregoing, we give the executive four weeks to provide security to Nigerians and commence proper cleaning of the embarrassing and notorious corruption cases – (in the) EFCC and NDDC – or we shall revert to the relevant sections of the constitution and commence impeachment proceedings in the interest of Nigeria and Nigerians,” the statement read in part.
