Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, who represents Abia South Senatorial District in the 9th National Assembly, has stated that the majority of Senators from the All Progressives Congress, APC, support the move to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
News Reports that according to the lawmaker, the majority of Senators are fed up with President Buhari’s administration and are ready to force him out of office.
According to Abaribe, lawmakers elected to represent Nigerians can no longer sit back and watch as President Buhari crashes Nigeria.
Senators across party lines, led by the Minority Leader, Philip Tanimu Aduda on Wednesday stormed out of the chamber chanting “All we are saying, Buhari must go”, “Nigeria must survive”, “Ahmad Lawan should follow”, etc.
Abaribe said, “…It’s not true to say that we don’t have the numbers [to impeach Buhari]. Most of the APC Senators are with us.
“And at the point, when this starts, that’s when Nigerians will know that almost every Senator is fed up and can no longer continue to see a situation that looks like what happened in Rome.
“This is exactly what’s going on today. [The question is], do we wait until this administration crashes the nation or do we take action to prevent it.”
