Senators from the opposition parties have given President Muhammadu Buhari six weeks ultimatum to address the rising insecurity in the country or face impeachment.
Senate Minority Leader, Philip Aduda, stated this while addressing newsmen after the opposition lawmakers stormed out of the Senate angrily, chanting “Buhari must go and Lawan should follow,” to protest the worsening insecurity across the country and Senate President, Ahmad Lawan’s handling of the situation.
Trouble started when Aduda raised a point of order for the Red Chamber to deliberate on issues raised at the closed-door session, which lasted for two hours.
Lawan had after the executive session announced that issues relating to workings of the senate and unity of Nigeria were discussed and asked the senate leaders to proceed with the items listed on the order paper.
Aduda had raised a point of order to call for deliberation on issues discussed at the closed session, but Lawan ruled him out of order.
Annoyed by the ruling, the opposition senators stormed out of the plenary, singing anti-Buhari songs, and called on the President to resign.
