The lawmaker representing Niger East in the Senate, Mohammed Sani Musa, on Tuesday said it is not the time to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
Musa while speaking with newsmen in Abuja, said impeaching the President is another crisis that Nigeria does not need.
The Senator stated this when asked why lawmakers have not made a move to impeach Buhari from office over security challenges in the country.
According to Musa, “You and I know what impeachment is all about. It’s another crisis into another crisis. Why do we need that now? What we need is a solution.”
“We need this country to come back to where we were in terms of peace. I will rather prefer a situation where all the operations of government are directed at security.”
“Anything we are going to do in this country should be towards tackling insecurity. We are not safe. No leader, from councillor to the president, that will sleep with two eyes closed.”
“I do not subscribe to a situation whereby, because we have the legislative powers to impeach, that we are bringing a motion for impeachment.”
“This is not the time for a motion on impeachment.”
He further stated that he does not support amnesty for criminals.
“I do not subscribe to amnesty for criminals that keep killing people in the name of religion. It’s not religion, it’s not Islam.”
“This is the holiest month where we supposed to sober and reflect and where peasant farmers cannot go to the farm and children cannot go to school.”
Recall that the Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Bello, on Monday claimed that the Boko Haram insurgents has hoisted its flag in Shiroro LGA of the state.
