The National Assembly has been called on by a chieftain of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, Olusegun Bamgbose, to amend the Constitution to provide for the recall of the President by those who voted for him.
The Lagos lawyer noted that with the attitude of the Federal Government towards insecurity in the country, there is a need to amend the constitution.
Bamgbose stated that if the constitution allows Nigerians recall lawmakers in the National Assembly, then the same should be extended to the President.
The lawyer who has shown interest in running for Presidency in 2023 said the procedure provided by the constitution to impeach a sitting President is almost impossible to be carried out.
He said, “It’s a difficult task to impeach the President in view of the conditions laid down in our Constitution. There should be an alternative to this, the Constitution should be amended to provide for the recall of the President by those who voted for him.”
According to Bamgbose, “President Buhari is due for recall by the electorate if the constitution had provided for it. I wonder how Nigerians can cope with Buhari’s Presidency for the next 30 months.”
“It’s like spending 30 months in hell. Lives and properties of Nigerians are now at the mercy of Boko Haram insurgents, bandits, gunmen, kidnappers.”
“May God deliver us. Our lives can no longer be guaranteed. Those in their houses are not safe, those that are travelling are not really sure they won’t be kidnapped.”
“Farmers can no longer harvest or work in their farms without obtaining permission from the military. We are certainly living in hell. All our President does is to condemn and condole.”
“This is certainly not the best of time for Nigerians. We have certainly been scammed by APC. We have been trapped by promises of change, this is so sad.”
“No doubt if the impeachment of Buhari were left in the hands of Nigeria, by now he would have been impeached. One wonders how Nigerians will survive another 30 months of Buhari’s administration.”
“Nigerians should brace up for the challenges ahead. Nigerians are fed up with Buhari’s administration. They promised change but we are experiencing a crisis, we expected dividends of democracy, but difficulties have become our daily experience.”
“May God deliver us from this government given to excuses and propaganda. Nigerians never bargained for this type of government.”
