Francis Fadahunsi, the Senator representing Osun East and Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Customs and Excise, has said he and other won’t be allowing Senate President, Ahmad Lawan to block the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari should he fail to tackle the insecurity issue in the country.
The Senator who addressed journalists in Abuja, said majority of the senators across political party lines had already passed a vote of no confidence on Buhari because of his administration’s inability to address rising insecurity in the country.
Fadahunsi also expressed doubt in the President’s ability to tackle the security challenges currently facing the country in six weeks since he couldn’t do so for seven years.
“We have been talking and giving suggestions on how we could end the insecurity challenges facing the country but the Head (Senate President) is hooked to the Villa. He has been frustrating all our moves to take drastic measures against the President.
“We have now made up our mind to strike now that the iron is still hot instead of wasting our time, cooperating with the Ahmad Lawan leadership while the nation is being destroyed by terrorists with no plan by the government to stop them. We won’t wait until we are all killed.
“We have now decided to pull out of the ‘rubber stamp’ arrangement so that the whole of Nigeria would know that we have not been in support of the failing economy, the huge debts accumulation, falling naira, insecurity across the country and the unprecedented forms of corruption going on in the polity.
“Unfortunately, the man heading us now (Lawan) was leading the opposition lawmakers before and was challenging the rots in the system then. Now, he doesn’t want anyone to challenge Buhari’s government when things are falling apart every day. Any leader that opposes such a challenge in a democratic setting must also be challenged because we are elected by the people.
“Go and interview most of the senators. There is no effective oversight of the ministries, departments and agencies of the Federal Government. Buhari will bring the budget and his people here will want us to pass it as he brings it. No examinations and heads of MDAs are doing what they like.”
The Osun federal lawmaker further stated that the impeachment proceedings would commence as soon as his colleagues resume their current six-week annual vacation on September 20.
“Those who voted for Buhari in 2015 thought he could contain the insecurity, being a former military general. Unfortunately, things are getting worse under his watch and he appeared helpless. That is why we resolved that if we come back on September 20 and discover that the situation is still the same, with no appreciable steps taken, we would impeach him.
“We will first impeach anyone who says we will not impeach Buhari. If anybody tries to block us here, whether the Senate President or anyone in the Senate, we will remove the person. Mr President is finding it difficult to sack his non-performing security chiefs while those terrorising the nation are not being arrested. There was tension everywhere and something drastic had to be taken.”
