Members of the Senate, who are the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus have given President Muhammadu Buhari six weeks to fix insecurity across the country.
The lawmakers threatened to impeach him if he fails to curtail rising insecurity in the country within the period.
The lawmakers on Wednesday reportedly staged a walkout from Chambers in protest when the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, did not allow the matter to be tabled at the plenary.
Speaking at a press conference after the PDP lawmakers had walked out of the Chamber in anger, the Senate Minority Leader and lawmaker representing the Federal Capital Territory in the Upper Legislative Chamber, Senator Philip Aduda, disclosed that the PDP caucus issued President Buhari six weeks to resolve terrorist attacks in the country or face impeachment.
He said: “The impeachment issue was raised during a two-hour closed-door but the Senate President was unwilling to allow the matter to be tabled at the plenary despite their agreement.
“It was necessary for the insecurity to be addressed immediately because, it is obvious that Abuja, the seat of the Federal Government is no longer safe, as we all can see.
“Various recommendations by the National Assembly have been made but security challenges have not abated. But now we are committed to impeaching President Buhari now.
“We went into a closed-door session on the state of insecurity in Abuja and took cognisance that Nigeria is no longer safe
“Senate has recommended various measures and discovered that even Abuja is no longer safe.
“We agreed in the closed session that we will give President Muhammadu Buhari an ultimatum, but the Senate President Dr. Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan didn’t want us to raise the issue.
“However, we have issued six weeks for President Buhari to resolve insecurity or be impeached. We walked out of Chambers in protest.”
