The Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, has reacted to the move by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senators to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari over the insecurity plaguing the nation.
Recall that Naija News reported that the opposition senators led by the Senate Minority Leader, Felix Aduda, gave the president six weeks to end insecurity in the nation or face impeachment.
Reacting to the incident via a statement on Thursday signed by its spokesman Jare Ajayi, Afenifere condemned the senate president Ahmed Lawan for stopping the senators from addressing the unrest in the country.
They questioned Lawan’s loyalty towards the nation and wondered if he truly wanted to end the menace or assist in festering it.
Ajayi said: “The situations that unfolded in Nigeria within the week have further confirmed that those piloting the affairs of Nigeria currently are far away from reality that Nigerians are dealing with on an hourly basis. It is, therefore, not surprising that steps being taken by the government do not touch the problems confronting us as a nation.
“Three instances are worthy of immediate recall. First was the drama at the National Assembly on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, where the President of the Senate Ahmad Lawan went against the decision taken during the closed-door meeting of the House’s officials to discuss the security situation in the country with a notice of impeachment to be served on President Muhammadu Buhari.
“By coming out to prevent Senators from discussing the issue, was Lawan working towards putting an end to the menace or assisting it to fester?”
