The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), has called on the National Assembly to commence immediate impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President Ahmed Lawan and Speaker, House of Reps, Femi Gbajabiamila.
According to the Coalition, the trio has respectively abused their office, failed to execute check and balances on executives among others.
Spokesperson of the CUPP, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere stated this in a press conference on Wedbnesday, October 6, 2021.
Ugochinyere said, the President had abused his office, grossly mis-conducted himself and failed to protect the lives and property of Nigerian citizens, adding that life was now so cheap in Nigeria that leaders “do not even show empathy anymore”.
The Coalition called on opposition lawmakers to work “in alliance with patriotic members who are imprisoned in the APC and seeking liberation to commence action and impeach the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila immediately”.
They further alleged that leaders of the chambers of the National Assembly have failed to guide their colleagues to act as checks and balances on the Executive.
“They do not have respect again as several members of the Executive ignore them even when they are officially summoned.
“Lawmakers are no longer respected and are ignored even when they officially summon officials of the Executive because they are daily moving from office to office begging, blackmailing and grabbing anything and everything they can grab.”
The spokesperson revealed that the CUPP has filed a suit at the Federal High Court to seek an order of mandamus to compel the National Assembly to perform its constitutional duty by investigating the several allegations of gross misconduct against President Buhari.
