… It is constitutional, PDP
… Insensitive, callous, says APC
Opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on Monday differ over the call by PDP House of Representative Caucus for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The PDP Caucus led by Hon Kingsley Chinda has appealed to Nigerians to put pressure on their representatives in the National Assembly to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Buhari over the upsurge in insecurity across the country.
Reacting to the call, the PDP Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan declared that the call by its caucus in the House of Representatives asking Nigerians to direct their representatives, across party lines, to commence the impeachment process against President Buhari is constitutional and democratic.
The party stated that the call is a direct reflection of the mood and desires of the Nigerian people, “given President Buhari, manifest failure in all spheres of governance and particularly in failing to provide effective leadership that can guarantee the security of our nation and
rescue our 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 Buhari administration had already accepted failure as reflected in the declaration by one of its officials, that the nation is now at the mercy of bandits and terrorists, a development that signals that it has outlived its usefulness.
The PDP added that 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 PDP urged Nigerians to eschew all primordial sentiments and stand for the nation at this critical time.
However, the APC dismissed the position of the PDP House Caucus and lampooned Hon Chinda for denigrating the office and person of the President by name-calling and insults.
According to the APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, the ruling party has “no intention of joining issues with a crass statement credited to Kingsley Chinda, a purported factional leader of the PDP Caucus in the House of Representatives in which he has resorted to denigrate the office and person of the President by name-calling and insults.”
The APC Spokesman stressed that “Chinda’s insensitive and callous intention is to play politics with the grief of citizens in the aftermath of the recent, gruesome and condemnable killings of some defenseless farmers in Zabarmari, Borno state by Boko Haram. The APC will not join Chinda and his PDP backers on this evil and ignoble road.
“We have since learned that Chinda does not even have the support of the PDP House factions he claims to head. He is alone, rejected voice. The House of Representatives has already dismissed Chinda’s rant as illogical, self-serving, and a ploy to derail the proposed visit of the President to the House.
“The leadership of the National Assembly, the President, and Armed Forces which the president heads as Commander in chief are on the same page in tackling emerging security situations in the country and ensure the safety of all Nigerians.”
