According to some members of the Senate, the Senators who are insisting on President Buhari to be impeached are not serious about it.
Two Senators of the Peoples Democratic Party, Francis Fadahunsi (Osun East), and Biodun Olujimi (Ekiti South), had recently said their colleagues in the Senate should not hesitate to take necessary constitutional legislative action against Buhari if the current insecurity continue unabated.
Even members from the opposition party also threatened to take action against President Buhari.
However, Senator Bashiru, Senate spokesperson in reaction said:
“I don’t think they (pro-impeachment senators), are serious about it!
“They ought to know better that national security is not politics play thing,”
Also speaking PDP Senator Francis Fadahunsi (Osun East), said:
“When the government cannot maintain security again, economic problem is mounting then something drastic must be done. We have the power. We can install and we can remove.
“If it means we have to look at that clause, we have to sit down during an executive session and harmonise and do it the way we should do it.
“If not, one day we will sit down here and one small boy will carry an AK47 riffle and everybody will run away. We may not be lucky. Are we going to wait for that time?”
“If the government has failed to protect us, the Senate should do the needful.”
