Former House of Representatives member and 2023 All Progressives Congress’ Governorship Aspirant in Kaduna State, Alhaji Sani Mohammed Sha’aban has laughed off the threat by the National Assembly to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
Sha’aban, who is an in-law to Buhari said that the move in itself is a mere joke as the lawmakers themselves were partly responsible for economic and security challenges plaguing the country.
The politician said this while speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Sunday.
He insisted that the lawmakers had failed in their duties especially with regards to security and economy.
He said: “One thing we should know is that Nigeria is not operating in isolation, the rest of the world is watching us. We are in a democracy, even though we borrowed the system from the western world, the other part of the world doesn’t practice democracy the way we are practicing ours.
“We should realize that in the House of Representatives, the Senate, they function under various committees and those committees are in charge of what we call oversight functions but what is happening today? Where are the oversight functions? What happened to reports of activities within the security apparatus?
So, if anybody will wake up today, coming from the Senate or House of Representatives and points accusing fingers on President Buhari on security, I challenge that person to go and impeach Buhari tomorrow if he dares.
“As you point your finger, millions of people from your constituency will point finger at you. You say you are representing them, is it when it pinches most that you will find a scapegoat? And you want to make Buhari a scapegoat?”
