It makes no sense to continue to manage failure as President — PDP defend calls for Buhari’s impeachment
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said President Muhammadu Buhari has done nothing worth keeping him in power for much longer.
Speaking in a statement through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said Nigerians have the constitutional right to demand Buhari’s impeachment if it becomes clear, that the president has failed in his responsibility as leader of the country.
The party, therefore, said calls by its caucus in the House of Representatives asking Nigerians to direct their representatives to commence the impeachment process against President Muhammadu Buhari is constitutional and democratic. The party said the call is a direct reflection of the mood and desires of the Nigerian people.
PDP noted that President Buhari has failed in all spheres of governance, especially in providing effective leadership that could guarantee the security of the nation and rescues the economy, which has collapsed in his hands.
“As a party, the PDP had always called on our federal legislators in the House of Representatives and the Senate, irrespective of political affiliations, to stand on the side of the people by deploying the legislative instruments provided in the 1999 Constitution (as amended) to rescue the ship of state,” the statement added.
PDP said the Buhari administration had already accepted failure as reflected in the declaration by one of its officials, adding that the nation is now at the mercy of bandits and terrorists, a development that signals that it has outlived its usefulness.
“President Buhari is elected by the people; his stay in office is also dependent on the people as vested on them by the constitution, through their elected representatives in the National Assembly,” the party stated.
PDP, therefore, urged Nigerians to eschew all primordial sentiments and stand for the nation at this critical time.
