A former member of the House of Representatives, West Idahosa, has noted that the National Assembly’s message to the Executive and specifically, President Muhammadu Buhari, with its resolutions yesterday is clear.
According to him, the lawmakers have the power to commence his impeachment process, if the President failed to comply with their resolutions.
“When the President has been asked to comply with certain decisions of the National Assembly, otherwise they will invoke their constitutional power.
“It’s a very clear message and what is the constitutional power that the National Assembly can invoke at a time like this? they can of course begin the impeachment process of Mr President and hope they secure the required 2/3rd in parliament to get him out of office.
“So that is a clear message and I think the President should be worried about that message,” Idahosa said during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
At an emergency joint session on Tuesday, the National Assembly reaffirmed its vote of no confidence on the Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris and warned the President over the “systematic harassment and humiliation by the Executive of perceived political opponents”.
