PDP House Caucus Calls for President Buhari's Impeachment
The People Democratic Party Caucus in the House of Representatives has vowed to seek judicial interpretation to the statement credited to Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, that the National Assembly lacks the power to invite the President over security matters.
The Caucus argued that the AGF erred in law, as his statement "implies that the president who was elected under the provisions of the constitution which he swore to uphold is above the law".
Leader of the Caucus, Mr. Kingsley Chinda stated this while briefing Journalists at the national assembly complex, Abuja.
He said in a presidential system of government and constitutional democracy, the National Assembly or the legislature is the only arm of government entitled to classified information because of their constitutional role.
He lamented that it is only in Nigeria that Mr. President prefers to liaise with his appointees instead of those elected by Nigerians to represent their interests.
The Caucus also reiterated its earlier call on Nigerians to urge their representatives in the National Assembly, to commence impeachment moves against President Muhammadu Buhari over the lingering insecurity in the country.
The Caucus, however, lamented that in less than 24 hours to the scheduled address over such weighty matters that involves lives of Nigerian citizens in the hands of bandits, he choose to stay away for the fear of being embarrassed by PDP members.
