The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has called for impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
They CUPP said the National Assembly should commence impeachment process without any delay against the trio.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja, the group’s spokesperson, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, accused President Buhari of abusing his office and gross misconducts.
He said the Mohammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) has failed to protect the lives and property of Nigerian citizens.
Ugochinyere, who lamented that life has become so cheap in Nigeria, said “our leaders do not even show empathy anymore.”
According to him: “The people are becoming unfeeling since wanton killings have become the order of the day and every new death is taken for granted.
‘So, we are calling on opposition lawmakers to work in alliance with patriotic members, who are imprisoned in the APC and seeking liberation to commence action and impeach,. President Mohammadu Buhari, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila immediately.
“Both leaders 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 form office to office begging, blackmailing and grabbing anything and everything they can grab.
‘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 Buhari.
