Ways to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari is being planned by some members of the Senate, who are majorly from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. The members raised the motion, saying President Buhari’s actions on several occasions have warrant him to be impeached.

An All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator from one of the Northern states, who spoke under anonymity said that the session was dominated with the issue of Executive recklessness, and its outright disregard to the federal lawmakers.

They were emphatic that President Muhammadu Buhari had serially breached some provisions of the Constitution, thereby leaving the situation as if the Senate lacked teeth to bite. Dailypost reported.

Sources also disclosed that the Attorney-General for the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami was at the centre stage of the discussion, with almost Senators of the Peoples Democratic Party and those of APC sympathetic to Saraki, complaining that the AGF was undermining Nigeria’s democracy by utterly disregarding the Senate invitation.

Midway into the discussion, Senator Oluremi Tinubu (APC) who could not hold back her feelings was said to have interjected at a point, but was shouted down.

She was said to have been assaulted, sources added.

Meanwhile, PDP Senators have vowed to consult with Party leaders to see the fruition of the impeachment plan, noting that in the last one year, they had not had taste of peace and harmony in the Senate.

More so, Senator Matthew Urhoghide (PDP) Edo South Senatorial District openly lashed out at the Secretary to the Government of the Federation on floor of the Senate on Tuesday, over SGF’s interview in a National Daily that the federal government would not be able to implement Constituency project this year.

According to the Senator, it was an impeachable offence since those projects captured in the budget had been passed into law.
