Buhari Impeachment: Another APC Senator has Joins The Fight

Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa, an All Progressives Congress (APC) senator for Bauchi North, claimed that many of his party’s members, including himself, supported the effort to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari from office.

Bulkachuwa’s position comes only days after Senator Elisha Abbo, an APC member, supported the opposition senators’ motion to remove President Buhari from office due to ongoing insecurity.

Last week, opposition senators—mostly PDP members—walked out of plenary and threatened to give the president an impeachment notice if he didn’t do something about the nation’s growing insecurity.

This newspaper had previously reported how Senate President Ahmad Lawan had voted down motions on security and an impeachment attempt.

Philip Aduda of the PDP, the Senate Minority Leader, made the motion that was later dismissed by Ahmad Lawan.

It may be noted that last week, almost 20 opposition senators left the plenary. Later, they gave the president a six-week ultimatum to address the nation’s security issues or face impeachment.

In an interview with newsmen, Bulkachuwa stated that he was fully in favor of the impeachment motion against the president because the legislative branch had done everything it could to ensure that the executive had the resources necessary to address the nation’s security, but little had come of it.

The majority of senators felt there was a need to take that action, he said. “On that day, the senate went into closed session, and it was at the closed session that these issues were discussed,” he said.

“The decision to impeach Buhari was backed by the majority but not by a clear majority.

It wasn’t made public because it had place in a closed session. There are no journalists present at the private meetings, not even staff. Senators are just meeting at this event.
