The National Assembly of Nigeria The National Assembly of Nigeria

The current insecurity challenges being faced in various parts of the country have prompted calls for the removal of President Buhari from office.

These calls were again reiterated by a lawmaker representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, who threatened the National Assembly will begin the process to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari should the insecurity challenges worsens in May.

"It's just like a blank cheque that the National Assembly has given to the Presidency and the Executive that look, what do you have, bring it to the table. We are ready to approve as long as you will solve the issue of insecurity.

"There is no member that has not been affected directly or indirectly as a result of the insecurity. I can't come to my constituency because of killing here and there. You have a lot of members like that.

"If nothing is done by the Executive after this last resort then we call for the impeachment of the President. We have the power to impeach the President if he can no longer secure the lives and property of Nigerians," Bagos said.
