Nigerian senators have threatened impeaching president Muhammadu Buhari. The impeachment move is said be gathering momentum.
The Senators are angry at Buhari’s perceived political gimmick of sacking the Senate leadership.
The Executive Session was chaired by Senate President, Senator Saraki, who reminded the Senate that a committee led by former Senate President David Mark had been set up to “reconcile” members.
At the plenary session, some Senators called on their colleagues to withdraw the petition that led to Senate President Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu’s trial.
Shortly after that, Senator Dino Melaye stated that AGF, Abubakar Malami, must have to explain why he ridiculed the senate.
Mr. Melaye beckoned on other Senators to resist the presidency’s move and fight it to a standstill.
In response, Senator Remi Tinubu, Wife of Bola Tinubu, said the Senate should not be reduced to a kindergarten where Senators could just issue childish threats.
She asked Senators to close ranks and seek reconciliation amongst its members.
Dino Melaye had had enough!
He went into a rage stating “I will beat you up on this floor and nothing will happen.
“I will impregnate you and nobody will move a tongue!”
The Senate went into commotion as the Senate President looked on.
Leading the offensive in support of Melaye were Senators Danjuma Goje, Jibrin Barau, Isa Misau and Peter Nwaoboshi.
Sources have disclosed an ongoing move, led by A Senator Aliyu Wamakko, to tackle President Buhari in the coming days.
The Senate plans on inviting the new Inspector General of police and ordering him to declare AGF Malami wanted if he refuses to show up at the Senate.
Thereafter, Senators opposed to Buhari would start impeachment proceedings against him.
Some previous supporters of the Senate President, like Senator Ali Ndume, has fallen out with the Senate President.
This suggests all is not well with the Saraki camp as his camp is expected to dwindle.
If the Senators follow through with their impeachment threat, Buhari will be the first sitting president in Nigeria to be ousted by impeachment.
