National Assembly Resumes, Division Greets Minority’s Move Against Buhari

The minority caucus in the National Assembly is billed to commence actions against President Muhammadu Buhari as lawmakers resume from Sallah break on Tuesday.

The opposition lawmakers, who are majorly of the People’s Democratic Party, are in the final stages in the move against Buhari over his alleged leadership failures.

A prominent member of the caucus in the House of Representatives said that the lawmakers would strike at a “critical” time.

The lawmakers in the minority are compiling the President’s alleged infractions, which they would use against him at the appropriate time.

The member of the House from the South-South geopolitical zone, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, stated that Nigerians already knew what Buhari’s offences were.

The caucus had on May 5, 2021, threatened to use its legislative powers to move against the President should he continue to breach the Constitution.

The Minority Leader of Senate and leader of the caucus, Enyinnaya Abaribe, after a closed-door meeting, had said the opposition lawmakers were saddened that Buhari had failed to guarantee the security and welfare of Nigerians, which he described as the primary purpose of government.

The caucus also expressed disappointment that the current regime had mismanaged the economy to the point of near collapse.

This, Abaribe said, should not be allowed to continue.
