On Tuesday, July 26, 2022, at the start of plenary, the senators challenged Senate President Ahmad Lawan with questions on why the topic of insecurity was not on the Order Paper.
According to Pulse, the parliamentarians were quite upset by the terrorists’ threat to kill President Buhari, Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, and prominent Nigerian politicians.
After being put under a lot of pressure, Lawan gave in and consented that the topic of insecurity will be debated in open session on Wednesday rather than a closed one.
According to a source speaking to newsmen, the senators said that they cried out to the President of the Senate that it must be considered and when he refused, they said that they will commence impeachment proceedings against President Buhari because the country is not secure.
Legislators have already threatened to impeach President Buhari. The National Assembly threatened to impeach the president in June 2018 if he did not comply with a number of requests.
Federal lawmakers quarreled in May 2021 about opposition politicians’ threats to impeach President Buhari. The Senators’ latest warning comes in the wake of recent alarming terrorist assaults in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria.
A terrorist ambush involving members of the 7 Guards Battalion of the Nigerian Army Presidential Guards Brigade occurred on Friday night near the Bwari Area Council in Abuja. Eight people died and three troops were killed in the event.
A few weeks before to the incident, terrorists broke into the Kuje jail in Abuja and released hundreds of prisoners, including suspected Boko Haram members.
In a video, one of the terrorists threatened to kidnap President Buhari and a few other senators and governors in the nation.
