On Wednesday, senators from all political parties demanded that Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari be removed from office due to the nation’s continuing high levels of insecurity.
Around 2.10 pm, a group of parliamentarians walked out of the plenary shouting loudly, “Buhari must go.“
Senator Philip Aduda, the minority leader, told reporters at the Senate Press Corps Center that they handed President Buhari a six-week deadline to address the country’s increased insecurity or risk being impeached by the National Assembly.
Aduda, who was surrounded by several other politicians, voiced his dissatisfaction at the regular kidnappings, killings, and extortions carried out around the nation by terrorists and criminals.
Recently, a video was released by bandits showing the remaining 41 kidnapped victims of the Abuja- Kaduna train where they were being flogged. The bandits also threatened to kidnap the president and the governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai.
